How to draw Raven female character, superhero, from Teen Titans. Learn how to draw female face and body (figure) from video and step by step. This drawing instruction is easy to follow in the beginning to finish line drawing. Though it might be a little more challenge when it comes to shading and render value using light and shadow. In this tutorial, you will learn how to draw a female superhero character’s face cover with her hood cape. Then you will also learn to draw basic female body along with her uniform. Her uniform is very much from fitting so you will certainly have to know female anatomy to be able to draw her basic muscle structure on her arms, torso and legs. But when drawing female body, we should not exaggerate the muscle structure like we do in male, we should keep it subtle. Instead we can accentuate her form such as her chest and her hip along with the flattering female pose but still look heroic.
Raven is a fictional female character who appears in comic books published by DC Comics. Raven is the daughter of a union between Trigon the Terrible, a powerful extra-dimensional being, and Arella, a woman who was seduced by a satanic cult to try to bring Satan to earth. Instead, Trigon came and took Arella as his bride. The moment Raven was born, Trigon’s evil influence was felt in Azarath. Her first life, 18 years, was spent in the Temple Azarath and creating The New Teen Titans. Her second life began once she started wearing the garb of White Raven, and lasted under two years. Her third life is her current form. Unlike the transition between her first and second lives, with her third life came a new, younger body.
Here is an unfinished conceptual black and white sketch of Raven. (I plan to take it into full color concept art later.)

Below are step by step images how to draw Raven to watch along with drawing video tutorial. Step one, I just rough sketch a female head with covered hood along with her body structure. The initial sketch is really light so it is easier to fix when needed. Step two, now I begin to draw and shade her face using basic shadow because her face is under her hood cloth. Step three, now I get close up and drawing more detail on to her face. Step four, I apply the same technique with the overall body for consistency. Step five, I draw in some hair hanging off from her shoulders. Step six, now I begin to draw her arms out then draw longer drape shape to construct her cape behind the body.
Step seven, now I use dark gray for her hood and cape, but leave her skin body and face medium gray. Her costume that cover her body we also use dark gray, but leaving her bare upper part of the legs. Step eight, now I painted more light and shadow onto the figure and her portrait. Step nine, I add more detail to the costume part but I always try to simplify the shading or painting with minimal value needed.
