The step by step process will show you how to draw face and body along with his costume from start to finished drawing. In this drawing, you will draw him from natural standing pose with both his hands in pockets. Like most superheroes, Grifter wear uniquely designed mask. Though he doesn’t wear spandex like most of them. He usually wear army uniform with many weapons and ammunition. So you won’t have to draw character’s muscles. Even if you don’t have to know every muscles on the body, but you still have to make sure that the visible anatomy is correct. The best way I would suggest to learn anatomy is to to attend life drawing session nearest you. If you cannot, you can always find any anatomy book for artists as reference source. Another useful method, before you start drawing, if you can look at any subject and able to break it down into simple geometry shapes. Start with big shape first, then break it down smaller within the big piece to get his muscle groups correct.
