How To Draw Super Heroes

As part of my drawing practice, I dug out this book I've had since childhood. As much as I wanted to, I could not draw super heroes well in 1983, and this book did nothing to help.

Thirty-two years later, I'm gonna finally show that I can draw Superman, Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman in their full '80s glory.

The book's inside cover.

As you can see, my child self's attempts to draw Superman were rather feeble.

Behold: 1983 Superman drawn in 2015 by my adult self. My Superman looks a bit less sure of himself than his portrayal in the book. I gave him different proportions as well.

Batman is next.
