How to draw Human Torch

How to draw Human Torch from Fantastic Four. The Human Torch, Johnny Storm, a superhero appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The youngest of the group, he is brash and impetuous in comparison to his beautiful and compassionate sister, Susan Storm, his sensible brother-in-law, Mister Fantastic, and the grumbling Thing. Following his sister, Sue, Johnny joined Reed Richards’ crew in a space flight. Riddled with cosmic radiation, Johnny transformed into a flaming monster when the flight crashed back to earth. Calling himself Human Torch in tribute to the World War II era hero of the same name, the youthful Johnny found new adventure as part of the Fantastic Four, proving to be an invaluable if somewhat volatile member of the team.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to draw Human Torch from Fantastic Four in his action pose with flame. You will learn to draw his fiery face, body and his surrounding flame in a dynamic launching position. This is a basic to intermediate step by step drawing instruction and easy to follow, I hope. First, you can use simple geometry shapes to construct the basic Manga head and body. It will make your drawing process a lot easier once you get the shape and proportion right. You also have to make sure the shape of eyes, nose and mouth are correct. Also remember to put each element in its correct spot. I usually start of using sphere or circle as a base for character’s head shape, then next step would be figuring out the next basic shape to fit into the image.
