Normal Nan to SuperGran! What kind of superhero will you draw?
Is there someone you know who is always ready to help others? Are they already a hero who could perhaps be turned into the “super” variety through your imagination? Let’s make it happen!
Start by asking yourself what kind of superhero they would be.
How could their best qualities be turned into superpowers?
If they are happy to carry things for others, they could have psychic levitation! Good at fixing things? Make them able to repair machines with a touch! The possibilities are endless.
How could their unique style be translated into a costume?
A striking costume can be a key part of a superhero’s identity, so how would you capture this person’s unique style and take it to super levels?
Consider what their favourite colours are that you could incorporate into their design. Do they have an item of clothing or accessory they’re often seen with? Try turning it into a gadget that contributes to their powers! Their glasses could be goggles that grant special vision or a bangle could become an invisibility bracelet!
Time to get drawing
Here’s the fun part. Get out your pens, paper, crayons or paintbrushes and try illustrating your chosen superhero based on the idea you’ve come up with.
Having a picture of your chosen person for reference may help, you could even draw from them in real life if they’re a family member in your household. However, you may wish to keep it a secret and surprise them with the end result!
You may also be able to draw inspiration from existing superheroes by borrowing a few key features. Would Batman’s utility belt be a good fit? Maybe Superman’s cape would look good on them?
Consider perhaps drawing them in an exciting pose as well, or better yet, busy helping someone. Either way, make sure the results are super!
