“You could not live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me.”
Thanos, Marvel Comics villain and antagonist in films such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Infinity War, and End Game, is from the planet Titan.
After watching the extinction of the Titans, Thanos believed that the massive population of the universe would eventually use up all resources and die out. To avoid this eventuality, he decided to destroy half of this population on the assumption that the other half would thrive.

How to Draw a Great Looking Thanos from the Avengers for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin by drawing Thanos’ head. First, draw an irregular rounded shaped. Then, draw a wavy line across the middle of the shade. From each end of the wavy line, draw additional wavy lines, downward. This forms the basic outline of Thanos’ helmet.

2. Draw Thanos’ shoulders. Extend short lines beneath the head and connect them using a curved line. Draw another, longer curved line roughly parallel to the first. Connect these using curved lines, noting the lumps or ridges that they form near the corners of the figure. Draw curved lines from the two lower corners, giving the armor texture and dimension.

3. Draw a pair of lines downward from the armor. Enclose them at the bottom by drawing a bone-like shape. From each side of this shape, extend straight lines. Draw a short, straight line downward from the end of each, and from the ends of the bone shape. Connect them using curved lines.
