Know your anatomy basics
A lot of comic art is all about exaggeration – none more so than with the human body. But to exaggerate a figure correctly, you need to have a good grasp on real-life human anatomy. Take life-drawing classes, study textbooks such as those of Andrew Loomis, sketch your friends in different poses… do whatever it takes to increase your understanding of how the human body functions. You’ll then have the confidence to draw and paint musclebound superheroes, or gangly supervillains.
