How to Draw Superman

In the last part of our series of superhero drawing guides, we will draw a flying Superman. This is an intermediate to advanced drawing tutorial, but if you follow the step-by-step instructions closely, you will be able to create an awesome looking Superman drawing.

In case you’re struggling with any drawing step, take a look at the video tutorial at the bottom of the post. You can also find a downloadable How to Draw Superman PDF guide.

To make the drawing process easier, we will use basic shapes to outline Superman’s body. These shapes will be erased during the drawing process, so draw with light strokes.

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.
