Comic Art Reference – Drawing Devastating Punches

Devastating punches are an important part of any character’s repertoire. A comic book punch consists of two elements.

  1. THE WINDUP: Imagine that the character’s punching hand weights 50 pounds. As the windup begins, the entire weight of the body is pulled toward the punching hand.
  2. THE FOLLOW-THROUGH: The follow-through is indicated by the fully extended punching arm and it’s accompanying speed lines. Note also that the punch is shown after the point of impact. This is the key to a great punch.
