Hey, I'm Bill Connolly your cartoonist and artist extraordinaire. We're going to talk about classic comics today and who to draw them. One of the most famous of course, Superman. That's right... can leap off tall buildings and we're going to put him here with x-ray vision. I'm just going to lay it out real quick and I like to start every drawing with the basic shapes and then fill in all the other details later on, rather than get too preoccupied with all the details and gives you a kind of a feel for where the muscles are and the anatomy of Superman as he gets ready to jump off the building here. So... and then we'll go ahead and fill it in. Let's take a pen and fill in the hair around... you can almost see his eyes except this time he's going to be looking... he's got light coming out of his eyes... like x-ray vision. And usually the broad... a lot of the superheroes have the broad square chin coming down and we'll get as far as we can with Superman. You can fill in the hair later on. But we're just getting the basic shape again we're... around here the shoulders... that fills in nicely there. Once you've got... Oh, can't forget that logo or else you won't get paid his Superman endorsement here. Get the logo in there. Got his shoulders coming around... coming around. Let's see, we got the shoulder muscle, bicep, triceps... comes around there. And here you can fill in with lines later on. And that is how to draw the most famous of all superheroes. That's right, number one, Superman. I'm Bill Connolly, your cartoonist and artist extraordinaire and thanks for watching.
