How to draw Colossus

How to draw Colossus from X-men. Growing up on his parents’ farm, Piotr Rasputin saw his older brother Mikhail become a Cosmonaut. Piotr learned that he too was a mutant, and could transform his flesh into steel, but he was content to use his powers to help his fellow farmers. Colossus can transform his body tissue into an organic, steel-like substance that grants him superhuman strength enabling him to lift/press up to 75 tons and makes him impervious to most injury. His armored form can withstand ballistic penetration as well as temperature extremes from 70º above absolute zero to approximately 9000º F. Colossus cannot become partially or selectively armored; his body is either entirely converted, or not at all.

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.
