Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and today I'm going to show you how to draw super hero abs. So we're going to start really quickly by filling in the super hero figure because we need a body to draw abs onto. So we're going to start with a circle for the head, kind of a bit of a squished circle for the upper torso followed with like a rounded rectangle for the bottom of the torso. Let's fill in a couple lines here for the legs and have in in a cool ready to pounce stance. Just a couple lines, very small little lines for the arms, a little circle for the hand and that's our basic shape we want for the body. So you're going to fill him in a bit, just use these lines that we've already drawn ad his outline, same with the legs, give him a lot of muscle, bit curved lines for the calf muscles, fill in your feet, this leg too. Even give him a little circle for the knee, bit calf muscles, kind of like triangular shape for this foot as it's facing forward. Same with the arms, big muscles, lots of ovals and fill in his head with a bit of a fat neck for this guy. So now on to the abs, basically all we need to do is do a lot of shading and little lines to make the abs look cool. To make it easier I'm going to put in his underwear lines, because super heroes wear their underpants on the outside and fill in these lines. We're going to do a line down the center and then a few little lines down where his stomach is. We can shade them in underneath and then put in a couple bigger lines up here for his chest. They can be rounded or squared depending on what sort of character you want to make. I'm going to make mine more squared and then I'm going to shade it in underneath, give him a little face and his mask and there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw super hero abs.
