Here is my next lesson for Drawing Comic Style Hair 3 different ways.
This started as a request from one of my Patreon supporters. I have done some other tutorials on my Youtube channel but this one is a more in depth look with art files to work along with.
I have struggled with getting the right look for hair for many years so I know what others mean when they say they just cannot seem to draw it properly. It is one of those things you will always be studying to get better at. Just like hands, faces, and feet. ( Yuck! I hate drawing feet. lol )
So don’t beat yourself up in the process and just take your time. Draw from as many resources as possible to gain your perspective on the subject. Great artists are not made overnight. It takes lots of time and lots of studies!
In this lesson I will walk you through my process step by step in real time. You will see how I built up the shapes and design the hair style I am after. I then show you how I place the shadows and add in the render lines or texture of the hair. I also talk about the importance of simplifying the process for your comic book style art.
So I hope this lesson will shed some well needed light on that subject matter for you and keep in mind that I am here to help. If you have any questions or requests for future content I am listening!
How to Draw Hands – 6 Different Ways – Video Lesson
In this video I discuss how to draw hand poses and things to look for to make this process easier. I talk about some of the primitive shapes that are noticeable in the hands when designing your art pose. As well as study methods to commit more of this to memory.
Hands are always a tricky topic but it is important to not shy away from them because you find them difficult to do. We learn a lot from drawing hands and they are in integral part of telling a great story within your illustrations.
If you have any questions about this video lesson then please feel free to comment and I will do my best to help you if I can. Either in a response or through and upcoming video. Good luck with your art and thank you for reading!

Free Lesson from My Course on How to Improve Your Figure Drawing
This is lesson 2 from my course on How to Improve Your Figure Drawing Step by Step that is available on both Udemy and my Gumroad. This will give you an idea of what you can find in the full course.
In this lesson I show you how to break down the arm with basic shapes to make drawing it from your mind much easier. This won’t replace knowing your anatomy. That takes years to accomplish. But this will give you the fundamental knowledge to build upon. I create these types of studies all the time to continually improve. You will also get the art files from each lesson in this course.
The entire course goes through each of the body parts of both male and female. This is a basic approach to figure drawing. This entire tutorial is 3.5 hours. I share techniques that I have used over the years to create comic book illustrations and storyboards for television. You will learn how to systematically break down the various parts of the body into simpler shapes. As I illustrate each area step by step you will follow along and learn from my studies. This will give you insight into how I create my artwork and create poses from the mind. I also share what techniques I use to improve my knowledge of the human form. Things like gesture drawings, timed studies of the pose, negative space drawing, foreshortening, perspective, organic versus angular lines, and much more. You will also be given a copy of the art files that I have created here so that you can work along and study from them. By the end of this course you should be more confident in constructing your figure drawings from the mind and have a better understanding of the human form.
BONUS Content! ( Only on my Gumroad ) Now by getting this course you will also get my lessons on How to Draw and Shade Muscular Arm Poses just to sweeten the deal. Includes the art files as well! 😉 Sample Video – https://youtu.be/0w6m3KiMfZ4
How to Draw Foreshortening for Comic Book Superheroes – Tutorial
In this video lesson I show you how to draw the superhero arm in a foreshortened perspective. I explain the process while drawing this step by step. I go over the techniques that I use to create this type of artwork quickly and effectively. This entire video lesson in narrated and in real time.
If you enjoy this video then please share it on your favorite social media to help me keep producing new content. I upload new videos on the subject of drawing comic book superheroes each week. I also teach how to digitally paint using a variety of programs and tablets.
Here is a quick step by step drawing of Batman’s mask. This character is a great way to test your level of drawing. He is very recognizable so the mistakes will be easy to spot. I always revisit popular characters for that reason. And they are just fun to draw. I will be doing lots of these so as I get them uploaded there will probably be a gallery or something dedicated to them. You can also make requests so that if and when I get some time I can create them.
This is the way that I have always gotten better at my drawings. I want to show other artists that this can be a great way to learn complex drawings for comics. By breaking down the simple parts like this, you can make those tough drawings easier to accomplish. That’s how I do it anyways.
And of course we can’t forget about the guns! Can’t have superheroes without big muscly arms. 😉 I will also be adding some more step by step drawing lessons on proportions as well. That is another sticky topic area for most of us. I constantly struggle with them myself. One of the reasons I like to create these is that I get better with my own artwork as I am sharing these with my fellow artists. Everyone wins that way!
So make sure to check back real soon for more step by step drawing lessons. Share this blog post if you find it helpful and informative. I need lots of feedback to make this site work for everyone. More of these are on the way and let me know if you have any questions. Good luck with your art!
