Description: So I was looking at some new movies that are coming out next year, and saw that Captain America is amongst the many cool flicks that are coming our way really soon. Since I have the Marvel character Captain America, I thought I would find a figure that was considered to be the bad guy. So after some brief research I found who the villain was in the new upcoming movie. You will be taught "how to draw the Red Skull", step by step. Now if there was ever a face of evil that described just by a slight glare how nasty someone can be, he would definitely fit the bill. Red Skull has got to be one of the coolest looking comic book villains I have ever seen, and it has partly to do with the fact that he is one hundred percent Nazi. His real name is Johann Shmidt, and he was born in a small village in Germany. Johann’s father was a very abusive man that had a bad alcohol problem which led to the beatings of his mother. When he was born Johann’s mother died during childbirth. Because his father Hermann Shmidt both loved and hated his wife, he blamed the infant baby Johann, for the death of his wife. The loss drove his father to insanity and because of this he tried to drown baby Johann. The baby was saved by the doctor that delivered him, and the next day his father was found dead by suicide. The doctor took the baby to an orphanage, and it was there that he led a very depressed, lonely, and horrible existence. When he reached the age of seven, he ran away from the orphanage and lived on his own on the streets of Germany where he picked up the petty carrier of a street thug and thief. All this sounds bad and all, but not enough to make such a person be driven to pure evil. What really made Johann Shmidt the ruthless, angry man he would grow up to be. Well, when he was a teen after he spent some time in prison, he found a job as a bellhop in a hotel. It was there that he was a servant for Adolf Hitler’s room. One day he walked in on Hitler himself and saw or heard him reprimanding an officer. Hitler was so furious, he was scolding the officer telling him that he was basically worthless, and how he could turn an ordinary bellhop into one of Germany’s dangerous national Socialist to have ever existed. It was Hitler that decided a normal officer uniform was not how he wanted this new solider to wear. Instead he had a unique uniform made especially for Shmidt that included a red skull that was not only very intimidating, but it is also very grotesque as well. Johann Shmidt was trained, put through a physical ringer, and taught how to be a ruthless assassin by being taught how to be an unarmed combatant, a superior marksman, and a military genius. There is so much more I can say about this fella, but I will leave your mind wondering about him until the flick comes out. Instead, you can have fun learning "how to draw Red Skull", step by step. I have to go now, and I don’t know if I will be back later or tomorrow with more drawing fun. Have fun with this lesson, and be sure to enjoy the rest of your drawing day!
