In this part of the superhero drawing tutorial series, we will draw a full body picture of Batman. In the other superhero guides, you can find instructions on how to draw Batman’s head, Spiderman, and Superman.
Drawing Batman with the step-by-step instructions is quite easy but this is definitely one of the more challenging tutorials on our website. If you want to start with an easier superhero drawing tutorial, see the guides for Batman’s and Spiderman’s faces.
If you’re struggling with a drawing step, take a look at the How to Draw Batman video at the bottom of this tutorial. You will also find downloadable PDF version of the drawing instructions.
Have your eraser handy when you start drawing Batman. We will sketch simple shapes to outline Batman’s body first. Many of those early lines will be erased before the drawing is ready.
In the guide below, each step is highlighted in a light blue color.
You don't need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.
