  1. Draw the Hulk’s base

    Begin by drawing an oval for the Hulk’s head and a large, rounded trapezoid for the torso. This outlines the shape of his upper body, giving an indication of the Hulk’s broad shoulders and imposing stature. Make sure to add a horizontal and vertical guideline across the face to assist in placing facial features in later steps.
