How to Draw Captain America Easy

Artist: Dawn / May 3, 2012

Step 1.

Begin with making a medium sized head guide like so, and then sketch in the traditional facial guidelines like so.

Step 2.

Start sketching out the structure or shape of Captain America's head and helmet combined. Draw in the small wings on the sides of his head like so, then proceed to step three.

Step 3.

Draw in the lining the way you see it done here to form the style and design of his Captain America's mask. You will also need to draw eye holes like so, and then begin sketching out the nose, as well as the frown lines too.

Step 4.

Draw inner lining following the same shape pattern for the eye holes like so. Next, draw the eyes, and color in the pupils. Draw the letter 'A' on his forehead, and then finish sketching out the nose. Draw the mouth, and then draw in his snarling tee   

Step 5.

Lastly, sketch in the ears as well as detail the insides of them, then draw the thick muscular neck as well as his shoulders and throat detailing. Erase your mistakes because you will be adding some shading if you are going to make this drawing a ske   

Step 6.

Start by shading in the foundation over the face, and wings using a 4HB pencil. When the base is done you will need to smudge in the pencil shading using q-tips.

Step 7.

Next, use your 4B pencil and begin adding the base work down on the mask, and the rest of the uniform. Take your time so you end up with quality, not slop.

Step 8.

Once you smudge in a background, and lighten up some areas on your sketch, the drawing you just made should come out looking similar to the one you see here.

Description: Well guys, for some reason I can't get enough of superheroes from the Avengers movie that is coming out on Friday of this week. I was thinking if there was another popular character from Marvel Comics that folks loved and remembered from back in the day. I found one that I think will be liked, and it's "how to draw Captain America easy", step by step. I'm not gonna sit here and tell you that I am familiar with Captain America because I'm not. I didn't even see the movie yet and it's been out for a while now. Instead I'm gonna tell you that Captain America is a very visually attractive comic book figure that has a lot of courage inside. His real name is Steve Rogers and he is the son to Joseph and Sarah Rogers who were Irish immigrants from the old country. When Steve was young he lost his father, and soon later when he was a teenager, he lost his mother due to pneumonia. Loosing both parents left Steve an orphan. Because he had no family he decided to join the U.S. Army as he was discovered by General Chester Phillips. Phillips told Steve about a project called 'Rebirth”. Steve agreed to be a test subject and soon after, his body underwent physical changes. He went from a tall scrawny kid into a masculine, buff man that excelled in strength agility, stamina, and intelligence. With all these new qualities, Steve Rogers became Captain America. I really do want to see the film and I think I might just have to rent it from Redbox. I think you will enjoy drawing Captain America easy because after all, he is being played by Chris Evans. Although, I didn't make my superhero look like Chris, but you will still be drawing a traditional looking comic book figure. I will be back soon so stick around once more.
