In this stand alone lesson, you’ll learn the basics of how to create an animation style male superhero character using traditional media.
Who is this course for?
Part 1: After a brief introduction, I’ll give you some things to think about before you start to build your male superhero. I’ll start off by showing you how to create rough sketches of a normal proportion male, and then briefly discuss the differences in proportion to the superhero body type. I’ll outline my idea of the “lightbulb” that I use to show you how to build the core of the body and explain how this can be manipulated to create different body positions.
Part 2: Next, you’ll learn a number of different superhero body types, from a slim “flash” type character up to a muscular suerohero type. You’ll learn how to use different shapes to create these body types. I’ll show you how to select a particular body type and start to work with that to create a final design.
Part 3: You’ll also learn about movement and different types of dynamic posing, as well as making sure the silhouette of your character is exciting. I’ll also briefly discuss things like clothing and accessories and some important things to keep in mind when you add them to your character. Finally, you’ll learn how to take your final character and create some clean lines helping you to prepare your character for photoshop and colouring.

If you are an absolute beginner with no or very little art experience we recommend checking out our books instead.
Many lessons in our courses work for both digital and traditional art. However, there are a few tutorials where a digital drawing software will come in handy for example Photoshop or Procreate for iPad. But for the majority of lessons it is more about the underlying concepts.
