Drawing a comic book superhero, with their fancy costumes and muscular physique, is never an easy task. So, detailed instructions for drawing your favorite hero can come quite handy to achieve a neat picture. Here is a step-by-step drawing of Captain America, the patriotic hero form Marvel Comics, with written directions.
Start with an oval (for the head) with facial guidelines followed by the outlines for the upper body.
See the picture to draw two straight-lines with a circle at the end of each for the arms and fists. Also, make a somewhat triangular shape to start drawing his lower body.
Draw the outlines for your Captain America’s legs and feet with straight-lines and ovals as shown in the picture.
Now, it is time to start working over the outlines to make the final drawing, starting with his head covered in a horned cap.
Use the facial guidelines made in step 1 to draw his facial features with an aggressive expression.
Follow picture 6 to draw the muscular upper body along with the large star on his chest and the striped design of his costume.
Now, it’s the turn of the strong arms and fists of your Captain America.
See the picture to draw the details of his pants and belt buckles. Also, carefully erase any unnecessary overlapping lines from the outlined drawing of the upper body.
Use picture 9 as your guide as you draw his muscular legs and high boots.
Erase the straight-lines and ovals drawn in step 3 for the outlines once you are done drawing the legs. Now, you need to start working on Captain America’s iconic shield.
Complete drawing the shield with three circular lines followed by a star in the middle.
The drawing is now complete, so you can move ahead to the fun part – coloring the picture with the patriotic colors of blue, red and white.
Now that you know how to draw Captain America, how about working on a superhero drawing series with other comic book heroes like Batman, Superman, Iron Man and Spider-Man?
