Learn how to draw Batman with this easy step by step tutorial. A few well placed curves on his arms and legs will make him look extra strong.
Once students have learned how to draw bodies, with all their necessary proportions, they might be ready to draw someone that looks extra strong, like say … Batman.
This drawing project keeps his body symmetrical, which is helpful, but also includes some easy ways to make him look very muscular. The square shoulders, narrow waist, and slightly curved thighs and calves all give him his look, which never seems to go out of style.

- Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase. Buying the pre-sharpened ones will save busy teachers a lot of time.
- Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tip erasers, especially when erasing leftover pencil lines after tracing.
- Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
- Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
- Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
Time needed: 45 minutes.
