Learn how to draw Supergirl and her flowing red cape. The girl behind the mask and costume can be whoever you want her to be.
There are apparently several Supergirl characters that have appeared before in American comic books. I’m not sure if they all have their own look, but apparently the name is pretty popular. That’s no surprise, Supergirl kind of says it all.
This tutorial is meant to help young students draw a costume that looks Supergirl-ish, but in an easy and approachable way. It has the simple mask, gloves and boots, with a slightly flowy cape behind. The hair could, of course, be adjusted to look like their own or someone else.
Note: To keep the fierce look of the eyes, encourage students to keep them simple with a straight line on top. It’s the way cartoon artists eyes so they have a fierce and don’t-mess-with-me look.
