How to draw Mr Fantastic

How to draw Mr Fantastic from Fantastic Four, Marvel comics. In this tutorial, you will learn how to draw Mr Fantastic in his elastic body and arms pose. You will learn to draw his face, hair and upper body in elastic dynamic action. This is a basic step by step drawing instruction and easy to follow. First, I usually start drawing with simple geometry shapes to construct the basic Manga head and body. This process will make your drawing process a lot easier. The intention is to get the shape and proportion right in the beginning. No matter what you are trying to draw, once you understand its foundation, you can keep drawing process at ease. You also have to make sure the shape of eyes, nose and mouth are correct and in the accurate spot. I usually start of using sphere or circle as a base for character’s head shape, then simple geometry for the rest of the body. For his face, I generally start of with basic portrait sketch and figure just like drawing any real portrait. 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. In comics, proportion is usually exaggerated in male superhero especially so knowing anatomy will help you in the future.
Mr. Fantastic, Reed Richards, is a fictional character, a founding member of the Fantastic Four. One of the bravest adventurers and most brilliant scientific minds of his generation, Reed Richards was born to Evelyn Richards and her husband Nathaniel, a scientific genius whose inventions and discoveries made their family quite wealthy. Mister Fantastic can shift his body (or portions of same) into a super-malleable state, enabling him to stretch, compress, expand, deform, elongate, contract or otherwise reshape his physical form at will. He can stretch his limbs, neck and torso to incredible lengths, though extending himself beyond approximately 1500 feet is a serious physical strain. Reed Richards is perhaps the greatest living genius of his time, proficient in almost all fields of science and technology, a visionary theoretician and inspired machine smith who has made breakthroughs in such varied fields as space travel, time travel, extra-dimensional travel, biochemistry, robotics, computers, synthetic polymers, communications, mutations, transportation, holography, energy generation, spectral analysis and more.
