How to draw X23 Laura Kinney from Marvel comics. X-23 is a revamp of the old character from Marvel. In this tutorial, you will learn how to draw X-23 face, hair and upper body. This is an easy to intermediate easy to follow drawing video instruction and step by step tutorial. I usually start of with basic portrait sketch and figure just like drawing any regular people. It is important that you should study drawing figure from real people, then you can always use the knowledge to translate it into comics art. It is more difficult the other way around, but it is possible. You will be more versatile if you know how to draw real proportion from real people first hand. Because once you know the actual true proportion then you can use that as a base for any character. In comics, proportion is usually exaggerated or accentuated so knowing anatomy will help you in the long run. Let’s start drawing X-23.
About X-23 origin. Weapon X used the only available genetic sample when creating Wolverine. The sample was damaged, they were unable to salvage the Y chromosome after 22 attempts. Dr. Sarah Kinney then proposed they create a female clone of Wolverine, and though her request was initially denied, she still went ahead and produced a viable female subject, prompting Sutter to reconsider. That is how X-23 was created.
