How to Draw Iron Man

Step 1

In the first step what you are going to do is draw a total of seven circles. The oval circle is for the head, the round circle below his head is going to be his shoulder, the round circle on the right side is going to be his knee, the circle below the shoulder is the left hand, and the two on the left side is the leg and foot.

Step 2

This is a simple step that requires two the drawing of two more circle shapes. One is a huge oval that is going to be the body, and the other circle is part of the right leg.

Step 3

In this step draw the line work for the right arm, if you look at the shaping of the arm it is nothing more than a bunch of odd shaped squares. Go down to the left arm and start the sketching for that as well, The two legs are real easy. Draw the lining on both sides going straight down, put the square curve definition on the left leg because it will be later detailed.

Step 4

This step is all about filling in the holes. An easy way to draw the back is to start from the shoulder line and draw a straight line with a slight curve down to the other shoulder. Do the same thing for the front of the chest. Sculpt the shape of the head that looks a little like a rigged knife, move to the right side and draw the boots, follow the lines above as a guide for the shaping. The back boot looks like a "W" shape that connects on the other side. Drawing the front arm is simple too, just draw a long letter "U" that squares off on the bottom.

Step 5

Detail, detail, and more detail. That is what this step is all about. A bunch of line art. The best thing to do in this step is to enlarge the image and follow each line by steps. Start at the head first then the arm to the afar right. After you complete the two, work your way down to the bottom and gradually finish off the detailing.

Step 6

In this step you are going to finish off the detailing by sketching out the rest of the lines. Draw the two almond shaped eyes and just a simple straight line for his mouth. After you finish with all the detailing erase all those guidelines and clean up your sketch by getting rid of the dirty sketching. After you have finished with all that move to the next and final step.

Step 7

Your done thats it. Your sketch should look like this after you are threw.

How to Draw Ben 10 Aliens Wildmutt

Step 1

This first step is simple because all you have to do is draw out the guidelines and shapes to form a frame for Wildmutt. Start by drawing a round circle for his head and a sad looking smile. Then draw out the rest of the shapes as you see them in the image for the torso, shoulders, and forearms. After that is done draw in the guidelines that are attached to the shapes.

Step 2

Now here you will be drawing out the mouth first including the large sharp teeth. After that draw and shape the left arm including parts of his claws and hand. When you are done with that draw in the porcupine spikes on the top of his forearm and shape the mid part of his arm into a muscle. Now draw out the legs and feet and sketch in the detailing on his chest and stomach.

Step 3

In this last step you will be drawing out the spikes on his back as seen above and the spikes on his chin. Finish drawing in the remaining nails on his left hand and continue to the right hand and draw that out as well. Detail Wildmutt a bit more than erase any guidelines or shapes you drew in step 1 to clean up your sketch.

Step 4

This is what your finished drawing of Wildmutt should look like when you are complete. All that is left to do is color him in and give him some color.


First Things First

What you will need to draw

Before you begin, gather up these swell supplies

  • Some pencils
  • Paper - A sketch pad is best, but any plain paper will do.
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Rubber

Later on, when you are ready to colour your drawings, you may want to try out some felt-tips, markers, crayons, coloured pencils, water colours or even acrylic paint.

Master the basics

Before learning to draw any cartoon characters, it's a good idea to get warmed up. Start by drawing simple shapes like circles ovals and curves. Don't worry about making them perfect, just keep your wrist nice and loose. When you feel comfortable with your shapes, move on to the next steps and just take one thing at a time.

Take it Step by Step

Usually artists draw characters in several steps. Sometimes the steps are different, depending on what you're drawing. The important thing to remember is to start simply and add details later. The blue lines in our steps show each new step and the black lines show what you have already drawn.
