WHAT YOU GET!
Drawing Powerful Heroes: Volume 2!
We are back with the second volume in Bart Sears’ Drawing Powerful Heroes series of definitive, how-to-draw books by Bart Sears. This second volume will be a massive, 144-page oversized hardcover, and continue one of the best how-to-draw series ever published. Completely written and edited by Bart Sears, this edition will be perfect for beginners and more advanced artists alike, as well as anyone interested in the art of and creative reasoning behind drawing powerful comics.
Acclaimed comic artist Bart Sears taught an entire generation to draw with his Brutes and Babes column in Wizard Magazine, which was the bible of the comics industry for a decade. In the pages of Wizard, Bart presented dozens of drawing and storytelling tutorials, providing an expansive education in comic art and illustration.
Through this Kickstarter, and with your help, Bart is continuing his collection of those beloved drawing tutorials. Each of the classic Brutes and Babes lessons have been expanded, updated, and revised, as well as redesigned to make for a much more satisfying reader experience. These expanded tutorials delve into anatomy, storytelling, character design, style, details, basic drawing and much more.
As in Volume 1, Bart has written and drawn five completely new lessons for this new volume. These new lessons take an in-depth, Brutes and Babes-style look at male proportion, anatomy, faces, and character design.
The Blue-Line Drawing Guide!
As part of this project, we are offering the oversized Blue-Line Drawing Guide, featuring dozens of structural drawings by Bart Sears, printed in non-photo blue on a drawing-quality paper, that you can draw right over, right on the page! Draw your own bubble muscles, develop your own finishing style, even ink right in the pages of this book! This 48-page volume is an incredible learning tool, allowing you to study structure as you learn to finish over perfectly-structured figures designed by Bart Sears!

Risks and challenges
The vast majority of Drawing Powerful Heroes Volume 2 and all new Blue Line Drawing Guide is already complete. Most of the art is in hand, meaning that only the editing, production, and printing phases of the project remain. Editing and production are already in process and are expected to be complete by the time the Kickstarter campaign ends.
Assuming we are successfully funded, both books will be sent to press shortly after the campaign's conclusion. Printing, proofing, and shipping to our offices can take an estimated 6-8 weeks prior to fulfillment. Delays due to unforeseen circumstances are always possible, but we anticipate a smooth process and on-time delivery.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
