The Wolverine!

posted in: Tutorials | 0

When you get asked to name ten Marvel superheroes, one of those is bound to be Wolverine. Even before Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of him spanning over a decade and a half, Wolverine was already the rock star of the comic world, appearing in cartoons, video games, and crossing over to other comic titles beyond X-Men.

So what makes him so popular? Probably the fact that his no-nonsense, anti-hero attitude, clashing with his strict code of honour, makes him a truly unique character. Plus his overall badassery. No one else makes wearing yellow look super masculine.

Being a ’90s comic nerd, I know Wolverine best in his classic yellow and blue spandex, drawn by artists like John Byrne, Jim Lee, Andy Kubert, and Joe Madureira. Those are the Wolverine stories I am fond of. The X-Men cartoon, with its super catchy theme song, is also a fond memory of mine.

When choosing which Wolverine style to go with for this tutorial, I decided to get inspiration from one of my favourite comic artists, Art Adams. I hope you enjoy!

Happy drawing,

Watch the LOGAN red band trailer:


“Born with super-human senses and the power to heal from almost any wound, Wolverine was captured by a secret Canadian organization and given an unbreakable skeleton and claws. Treated like an animal, it took years for him to control himself. Now, he’s a premiere member of both the X-Men and the Avengers.” (Source)

I’m a schoolteacher who has always loved to draw. One day, one of my students said, “Can you teach me how to draw Baymax from Big Hero Six?” Thus, the channel was born! I’m a big nerd who loves comic books, action figures, and movies. I live in the USA, but I’m actually Filipino-Canadian.
