Welcome to our series of superhero drawing tutorials. During the series we will learn how to draw Batman, Superman, and Spiderman with easy step-by-step instructions. We will also learn how to draw the superheroes’ logos.
Drawing a full-body picture of a superhero can be challenging but drawing just the face, head, and shoulders is much, much easier.
Draw with a pencil and sketch lightly at first. You will tweak the early lines and shapes later. When the Batman outline is complete, you can draw heavier lines and color your Batman drawing.

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.
If you scroll down, you will also find a video tutorial and a downloadable step-by-step guide on how to draw Batman’s face.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Batman's Face
We’ll start by sketching a male face. Draw an oval at the top part of your page. Leave some space for the bat ears that will be sticking upwards.
Draw a U-shape below the oval.
Add two inverted V-shapes for the ears and continue by drawing slightly curving lines from the ears to the jaw.
Erase the left and right sides of the oval.
Draw a wide V-shape immediately below the oval. This line is the bottom of the Batman’s face mask.
Erase the bottom part of the oval.
Add two triangles for the eyes.
Outline the nose with two lines.
Draw a line in the middle of the nose. Add an arc for a fold in the face mask.
Place a line at the right ear to better outline its shape.
Similarly, add a stroke to the left ear.
Draw an inverted W-shape for the upper lip and a curve for the lower lip.
Add a curving line on both sides for the neck.
Continue with curving lines for the shoulders.
Add two curving lines to outline the shape of the neck.
Draw a long curve connecting the shoulders.
Add the sides of Batman’s face mask.
Add a few lines for the folds in the cape.
Clean up any stray lines, outline the drawing with thicker strokes, and color your drawing of Batman’s face.
