How to draw Cyclops, Scott Summers, from X-men. Cyclops possesses the mutant ability to project a beam of heatless ruby-colored concussive force from his eyes, which act as inter-dimensional apertures between this universe and another. Cyclops’ body constantly absorbs ambient energy, such as sunlight, from his environment into his body’s cells that allows him to open the apertures. However, Scott’s display of power had attracted the attention of the mutant telepath Professor Charles Xavier, who teamed up with F.B.I. agent Fred Duncan in their mutual attempt to find Scott. Scott was enlisted by Xavier as the first member of the X-Men, a team of young mutants who trained to use their powers in the fight for human/mutant equality.
In this tutorial, you will learn to draw Cyclops, Scott Summers, from step by step drawing instruction. The step by step process will show you how to draw his face, his optical mask and his costume from start to finished drawing. In this drawing, you will draw him from natural standing pose from the a three quarter view. Cyclops always wear his optical beamer mask. He has an average superhero build and muscular. You will need to know male’s muscle structures over his tight form fitting suit. 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.
