How to Draw Captain Underpants!

Excited for the Captain Underpants movie? Well, here's how you can draw the defender of all that is pre-shrunk and cottony!

Step 1 – Start with the head

Just a big old upside down U shape for his big bald head

Step 2 – Add in a face

Draw some simple dots for eyes and a good curly shape for the nose

Then draw a sausage for the mouth and make it stripey for teeth

Make his eyebrows look all heroic by drawing one straight and one curved. You can also add a mouth-brow to emphasise his smile.

Don’t forget a couple of circles either side for ears!

Step 3 – Draw the cape

Add a circle and 2 wavy triangles to form a knot for starters

Then moving out from that, draw a bunch of wavy lines to give a good cape shape!

Step 4 – Add arms

Draw a couple of lines coming from under the cape with some sausage shaped fingers. Have fun trying out a few different powerful poses!

Step 5 – It’s belly time!

Draw a big curved line for his good strong stomach! (Make sure to leave a little gap for the legs)

Step 6 – Draw some legs

Add a couple of thick backwards L shapes to the bottom of the body. Draw some toes on the end with a little squiggle and a backwards C in the ankle.

Step 7 – Give him some pants!

Add a waist band with a curved line around the body and then add extra details like the extra lines on the front and a dotted line of elastic along the top

Step 8 – Add dots!

Dot on some nipples and a belly button and then go wild with dots all over his cape for some lovely texture

Step 9 – Finally, colour him in!

You can also add some white lines along a few of the edges afterwards to give him that extra bit of super shine!
