Would you like to draw Lego Batman? This easy, step-by-step superhero drawing tutorial is here to show you how. All you will need is a pencil, an eraser, and a sheet of paper.
1. Begin by drawing three straight lines, like the sides and bottom of a square. The lines should connect with rounded points. Then, connect them at the top with a curved line, forming a sharp point on one side. This outlines Lego Batman's head.
2. Use a curved line to enclose a rounded triangular shape above the pointed side of the head. This is one of the batlike ears of Batman's mask.
3. Use curved lines to enclose the rounded triangular shape of the remaining ear. Then, detail both ears by drawing a curved line down the middle.
4. Use a curved line to enclose a flat, irregular shape beneath the head, forming the neck. Then, extend three curved lines downward, forming the front and side of the torso.
5. Draw three rectangles at the bottom of the torso. Give them a three-dimensional appearance by enclosing a smaller rectangle along the side of each. Connect them using pairs of lines. Draw another pair of lines to meet the far side of the figure. This forms Batman's utility belt.
6. Use curved lines to enclose an irregular "L" shape at Batman's side, erasing as necessary. This is the arm. Detail it with lines, giving it a three-dimensional appearance. Beneath the arm, enclose a "C" shape. Draw lines in the center of the "C," and enclose a rounded shape alongside it. Connect the "C" to the arm using three straight lines.
7. Draw a "C" shape on the opposite side, partially hidden by the belt. Draw lines across its center, and indicate the arm using a series of lines. Connect the two hands using a straight line.
8. Draw Batman's legs. Use straight and curved lines to enclose the form, then detail the shape of the legs using additional straight and curved lines.
9. Detail Batman's face. Enclose irregular shapes to indicate the eyes and mouth. Use curved lines to form the frown, the nose, the side of the face, and the furrowed brow. Then, draw Batman's cape. Extend long, curved lines from the neck, and connect them to the body using a series of curved lines. Finally, draw the Batman logo on his chest. Enclose a large oval with the jagged bat shape within. Shade the bat.
Color your Lego Batman. He wears a black suit with a yellow logo and belt.
According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica , the cross is "the principal symbol of the Christian religion." Millions of people wear a cross on a necklace or employ the cross in body art or to decorate their homes, vehicles, or clothing.
The cross as a symbol has a long history spanning numerous non-Christian religions. Simple X or + marks are found in prehistoric cave drawings. In ancient Egypt, the cross-like ankh or crux ansata - translated "cross with a handle - was often depicted in the hand of the pharaoh or of various deities. It was used both as a fertility symbol and to represent life. W. E. Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words also notes that the cross or t was used as a symbol for the Chaldean god Tammuz.
For 300 years after the founding of Christianity, there is no historical evidence of the use of this symbol in worship. It came into popularity when promoted by Roman Emperor Constantine, between 306 and 337 A.D. Throughout the Middle Ages in Europe, the cross was used as a religious symbol. The design, for example, adorned the shields of knights and crusaders. The cross also appears in much of the religious artwork from the sixth century onward, appearing in paintings, on the cover and pages of religious texts, and in architecture, especially of churches.

Bulbasaur, the Seed Pokémon, is a dual-type Grass and Poison Pokémon of Generation I. Its name is a combination of the words "bulb," referring to the plant on its back, and "dinosaur," describing its saurian appearance.
Bulbasaur first appeared in the Pokémon animated series episode entitled "Bulbasaur and the Hidden Village," in which he was defeated by Pikachu and captured by Ash.
Along with Charmander and Squirtle, Bulbasaur is one of the three starter Pokémon from which a trainer can choose on the early Pokémon games.
They are rare in the wild; most Bulbasaur are raised by Pokémon breeders for distribution to new trainers. Bulbasaur may evolve into Ivysaur at level 16, and Venusaur at level 32. Each year, many Bulbasaur gather in the Kanto region to evolve into Ivysaur during a special ceremony.
The plant on Bulbasaur's back grows from a seed that is planted there at its birth. This plant provides Bulbasaur with energy via photosynthesis, and it essential to many of Bulbasaur's fighting moves.
