Draw the DC Universe

A drawing book for those of us without superhuman skills

Never fear, comics fans! The team that brought you Draw the Marvel Heroes and Draw Star Wars: The Clone Wars have seen the Bat-Signal, and we know your drawings need some saving. Draw the DC Universe is here to help.

This book is a complete how-to-draw package, jammed with expert tips and techniques, tons of practice space, and, of course, a universe of DC characters. They're all here, from the coolest heroes (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern) to the vilest villains (the Penguin, Riddler, Mr. Freeze, and the Joker). Learn to draw them all step-by-step: starting with stick figures, filling them out with rough shapes, and adding final details. Then use shadow and perspective to add depth and motion — because we're pretty sure the epic battle of good versus evil requires some action scenes.

The draw-right-in-it book comes with everything you need: a sketching pencil, artist pencils in six colours, a big block eraser to fight crimes against the page. Translucent overlays are scattered throughout the book for can't-fail tracing activities, and stencils with the Batsymbol, word balloons, and smash—bam—pow sound effects. Altogether, it's everything you need to master the DC universe.Click here for more
