Figure Drawing Foundations – Proportions by Clayton Barton

Hello fellow comic art guys and gals. I have a pretty cool offer for you if you find yourself wanting to get better at drawing comic book hero proportions. We have all struggled in that department a time or two and it never hurts to work on that subject as much as possible. So here is just the thing to get those mental gears working on that topic.

Figure Drawing Foundations – Proportions by Clayton Barton. Clayton has done a stand up job at breaking down the barriers when it comes to understanding proportions. He goes into great detail on this subject and sheds light on this tricky topic. He also gives you a nice variety of tiers to choose from. Since one size doesn’t fit all, you can choose from a few packages to suit your level of interest for this topic.

In the various packages you get video walkthroughs, PDF’s, access to a virtual classroom, and lots of finely crafted lessons. I have been drawing a long time and I must admit that I am finding some great tips and tricks in here that I needed to learn. He has done an excellent job at covering all the bases to understanding body proportions and character designs. He breaks it down in an easy to follow manner which is so valuable when doing these types of studies.

So if you need that level up on your character work this is the course content to check out. And please share the work. Clayton is an amazing teacher and to keep him creating great content sharing the work is essential!

How to Draw Superheroes Step by Step

How to Draw Superheroes Step by Step

Welcome to Ram Studios Comics.  Here you will find step by step instructions on how to draw superheroes.  The lessons on this site will be easy to understand.  I will cover all the basics of drawing comics and the  characters within them.  I believe that anyone can become a great artist if they love to create.  It is the passion that drives us not the talent.  If you love to create comics then you can do it!

On this site you will find simple drawing methods.  Sometimes they will appear to be basic and maybe even boring at your current level of artistry.  But, I assure you it all serves a purpose.  By studying the basics we can make the complex drawings easier to accomplish.  Superhero drawings are complex when we try to draw them at first.  After learning about the smaller parts to the whole, it becomes much easier to do.

How Long will it Take me to Learn Superhero Anatomy?

I get this type of question all the time.  How do I learn figure drawing?  How long did it take you to learn how to draw superheroes? And the list goes on and on.  There is no quick answer to these questions and there is no quick road to success.  It takes years to develop the skills to draw the body well.  I also cannot proclaim to know if you will learn quicker or slower than I did.  All I can tell you is that drawing the human form properly is hard work.  But, like I said previously, “The passion drives us, not the talent!”  The talent is a by product of the passion.  So be ready to work hard and also be thankful that there is not an easy road to success.  This is what makes your desired profession out of the reach of so many others.  Like the old saying goes, “If it was easy, everyone would do it!”

To get started, head over to our step by step section where you can find study guides.
