How To Draw Spawn

Drawing Spawn with helpful and inspiring video tutorials

I'd consider this as my first attempt for a good few years at drawing Spawn. I wanted to try and get all of the chains and main costume details in there and just make this a solid looking pencil drawing. When sketching this piece of art the most difficult thing to work out is the cloak which will obviously need me to practice a lot more, but on the whole the Spawn drawing turned out quite well and it was a good re-visit to a popular comic book character such as Spawn.

I first started buying my Spawn comics back when Spawn first came out in 1992 as I was and still am a fan of Todd McFarlanes art and the story of Spawn. The art drew me in and then the story followed not long after and as the years went past there was this massive array of characters you came to know, some died whilst others disappeared for awhile and that's to be expected in any long running comic book.

Watch the drawing video below and try drawing Spawn yourself as practice makes perfect when you exercise your drawing muscles.


Draw the Spawn half masked

Here we have video slideshow of the steps to take to draw a Spawn face masked. You can pause this video at any time if you are following along with the drawing process. This drawing more reflects the current Spawn incarnation as you can tell with the spikes on the head and the Demonic like teeth. It's always a good idea to plan any sketch beforehand and practice drawing the Spawn from many different angles. (This is something we shall do coming soon!)


How to draw Spawns face unmasked

When drawing Spawn's face it is always a good idea to draw it without a nose as that makes the Hellspawn look more evil with the eyes glowing his hell power. The teeth remain white at the pencil drawing stage. When I eventually come to ink this drawing I'll add some cracks and thin ink lines vertical on the tooth. Excessive pencil shading helps bring out the oozing shape of the power coming from the eyes and it creates a good contrast between dark and light areas on the Spawn face.
