Step 30: Draw Batman's cape by first drawing two curved lines under the head as the top part of the cape. Then draw a long, slightly curved vertical line under the fist for the left side of the cape. Draw a shorter vertical line that curves to the left for the bottom part of the cape. Draw a series of triangle-like shapes on the bottom for the part of the cape that drags on the floor. You can draw your cape shorter, but ol' Bruce Wayne uses it to slow his falls and even glide, so don't make it too short.
Draw the right side of the cape the same way, only all the lines should be inverted and pointing to the right. Remember, different artists draw the caped crusader differently, so feel free to change up your drawing. Use a series of curved lines between the feet for the back portion of the cape that is draping backward. If you made the sides of the cape shorter, be sure that the back portion reflects that as well.
Step 31: For a more finished inked look, carefully go over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker.
Step 32: After inking, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser for a cleaner Batman drawing.
Final Step: Color your Batman drawing using color pencils, markers or even crayons! First color the bat logo black. Use black for the underpants, the mask, the gloves and the boots. Leave a few streaks blank to create shine. Only color in a few streaks of black on the gloves and the boots. Use black to create shadows too. Use black for the underside of the cape. This will take a while, so take breaks as you color.
Use gray for the other parts of the costume, except for the belt. Use a little bit of blue on top of all the other colors but leave some white on the streaks for the shine. You can also omit the blue and just color your Batman drawing black and gray. Use dark and light brown for the belt. Color Batman's face using light brown and peach. If you don't have peach, use yellow-orange or pink.
