How to draw Hawkeye

How to draw Hawkeye from Marvel comics, the Avengers. In this tutorial, you will learn how to draw Hawkeye in both mask and unmasked version. You will learn to draw his face, hair and upper body along with his costume. This is an easy to intermediate easy to follow step by step drawing instruction. 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. Though the easy to way to draw basic character is to break it down into simple geometry shape as I will show you below. Or you can think of it as gesture drawing. Though 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 term.
Hawkey, Clinton “Clint” Francis Barton, is a fictional character that appears in the comic books published by Marvel Comics. In the live-action film The Avengers (2012), Hawkeye is portrayed by Jeremy Renner. Hawkeye was orphaned at an early age when his parents died in a car accident and was sent to a children’s home with his brother Bernard. He and his brother ran away to join the Carson Carnival of Traveling Wonders, and the pair worked as roustabouts. While a member of the circus, Hawkeye was trained by the original Swordsman (Jacques Duquesne) and Trickshot. Clint’s life, however, would forever be changed after he stumbled onto the Swordsman counting the money he had just robbed from the carnival. His natural archery abilities honed to an expert level, Clint wandered the country, working in various carnivals or otherwise making money out of the costume and persona of “Hawkeye”. He soon met the Black Widow, who was working at the time as a costumed villain for her country, and she easily seduced the hot-headed adventurer, making him think it was in his interest to defeat Iron Man.

Here is a final drawing of Hawkeye.
