Now you can learn how to draw Superman the easy way, with the help of a step by step tutorial. His body has been simplified, but there’s still no doubt about who he is.

Superman Drawing

Superman is a fictional superhero who first appeared in American comic books way back in the 1930s. He’s the classic hero with super human strength, so it’s no wonder that kids have been fascinated by his story all these years.

Today though, he’s a fun drawing project to add to summer projects in general, and Father’s Day in particular. This version of his body and pose is not complicated to draw, so featuring him on a Father’s Day card is a fun theme to work with. His clothes make for a colorful card, and the messages that students add about their “Superman Dad” will just kind of write themselves.

Materials for How to Draw Superman

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • 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.
