How to draw Susan Storm Fantastic 4

How to draw Susan Storm Fantastic 4.  Learn to draw comics girl video and step by step tutorial. Learn how to draw comics female characters #001

It's been a while since I did a sketch tutorial video on woman drawing. Since I've been doing many comics superheroes sketches so I thought I should do the girl's version of video also. My first pick is Susan Storm from Fantastic 4 comics. It was the first American superheroes team comics I read when I was a kid (well, other than Batman, Superman and the Hulk). Anyway enjoy the tutorial.

A bit about character. Susan Storm is the first female superhero created by Marvel in the Silver Age of Comics. She's also known as Invisible Girl and later, Invisible Woman. Susan is a fictional character, a Marvel Comics superheroine created by writer Stan Lee and artist/co-writer Jack Kirby. The character first appeared in Fantastic Four #1 in November 1961, and like the other founding members of the Fantastic Four, Sue received her powers after being exposed to a cosmic storm. Her primary power deals with light waves, allowing her to render herself and others invisible. However, she can also project powerful fields of invisible psionic energy which she uses for a variety of offensive and defensive effects.

*She's also an object of infatuation for Doctor Doom, and, most notably, Namor the Sub-Mariner.

If you are a beginner and just stumble upon this blog, go watch these basic video tutorials: How to draw lesson girl face, How to draw person head basic and Draw and render human head with different light sources. (These two are a little more basic)
As for basic figure or body tutorial, you should go watch the following, How to draw female body torso step by step (Easy lesson on how to sketch and draw a body in the very easy basic way that works.), and how to draw woman figure hip pelvis (Similar the the previous, this is a basic way to draw pelvis, butts, and legs that will lead to advance form). There are also figure in simple form using lines or what we called gestures figures video tutorial and learn how to draw woman character sheet.

Also the new arrival video tutorial, How to draw Captain America. And an older video tut, How to draw Batman or Darknight.

Is it just me, or has Dragon Age gone for a similar logo to your GW2 one? (although you should know the url to your own site)
Luca said…
Wow, I dig this one. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"... yeah I agree, but why do I like all of your girls? Maybe we have the same taste and aesthetics for women, but the ones I draw aren't as nice and beautiful as yours -- more practice :)

I suggest you to take this to a further color stage and refine it cause it's really good.

P.s. Is there any change you send me this kind of brush used? (or tell me how to get the effect).. thank you and your GW2 concept is also hot. will be waiting for more of them brother.

Peace out!

Karia> Im glad they are useful. See you soon. thx!

Well its nice to see a new look for the site's.

I've finally gotten back home after half a year of Lombok. Still trying to find my way around here.

Anyhow, I'll reattach the mailing invitation form to the community so I can start handling those again.

Besides that I'll get together a collection of nice photos from Lombok and see if I can find what little drawings I made during my time there.

Well, its nice to be back!

Knuckle> Welcome Back bro!
Knuckles930 said…
Thanks, its great to see how everyone is getting better at what they do.

I reconnected the contact page and should be able to pull together a post with photos from Lombok within a few days.

Noel Petroni said…
Hi, I really love your work! You've inspired me to pick up my pencil and start practicing again!!

Question: I'm interested in purchasing a tutorial ""Drawing Essential: Female Figures" and I wanted to ask if it's 'Photoshop' orientated or it's good for to learn on paper sketching? Also.... since I'm not proficient in computers, are the downloaded videos compatible with imac?

idrawgirls said…
@Noel thanks man! Everyone should art or play music and will make the world a better place. :-)
The "Drawing Essential" series are traditional pencil and paper tutorials. Yes, you can view it on Mac using Apple Flip4Mac on Quicktime.
There are also a bunch of FREE Videos on the feel free to spend all day watching them.

I still have a really tough time getting down the proportional sketch. Did you take classes specifically for that? My eyes on my women always make them look Asian as well which would be fine if Susan storm was asian
