What You’ll Be Creating

Famous Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool, had to wait quite a while for his own movie, but his time has come. So, obviously, it’s also time for a tutorial with Deadpool as the star!

If you want to express your joy in a creative way, follow me—you don’t need to be a Photoshop expert to do this, and you don’t need a tablet either. By the way, you’ll learn the basics of Shapes and the Pen Tool, which isn’t as scary as they say. I promise. Are you ready?

1. Prepare the Sketch

It’s very hard to create an illustration without any guide lines. Let’s prepare a simple sketch that will be a skeleton for the rest of the picture. Feel free to do it traditionally, with a pencil. You can also use my sketch, if you don’t like drawing.

Step 1

Start by drawing the core of the pose: a “torso” with legs.

Step 2

Let’s rotate the torso to the right by bending the torso line.
