How to Draw Spider-Man


Hey there, art enthusiasts! Today’s tutorial is perfect for those who believe that immense power comes with great responsibility. Can you guess the character we’re about to draw? Yes, you got it right! We’re going to learn how to draw the iconic Marvel superhero, the incredible Spider-Man.

Step 1: Sketching the Initial Proportions

Let’s begin by sketching out the overall proportions and posture of Spider-Man. Use an oval shape as the foundation for his head, which resembles an inverted egg. Sketch lines to establish facial symmetry, with a vertical line locating the face’s center and a horizontal line guiding the placement of the eyes. Use light strokes to outline Spider-Man’s torso, hands, and legs. Remember not to press too hard with your pencil during this initial phase.


Step 2: Adding Volume to the Body

In this step, we’ll give Spider-Man’s body more depth and dimension. Start by using the facial symmetry lines to sketch his eyes. Then, draw circular shapes for his shoulders. Utilize convex cylinders to outline his arms and hands, remembering that the left hand should appear slightly larger as it is closer to us. Continue by shaping the torso, ensuring it tapers towards the waist. Apply the same approach to draw the legs, narrowing the shins towards the feet.


Step 3: Refining the Details

Let’s move on to erasing the guidelines from the previous steps. Refine Spider-Man’s head by emphasizing the jawline and flattening the lower sides and bottom. Darken the lines defining his eyes. For more in-depth guidance on drawing Spider-Man’s head, check out our dedicated tutorial. Now, add muscular definition to his hands, torso, and legs. Sketch the primary lines of his suit, and don’t forget to draw the web flowing behind him with a curved line.


Step 4: Weaving the Web

It’s time to incorporate Spider-Man’s iconic web into the drawing. Begin by drawing lines on his head, starting from the nasal bridge and branching out towards the sides. Apply the same technique to create web lines on his torso, arms, and legs. Lastly, depict short lines on his fingers.


Step 5: Perfecting the Web

Let’s continue to enhance Spider-Man’s web. In this step, draw transverse lines, making sure they are gently curved and evenly spaced. Add the spider emblem on his chest. Provide texture to the web behind Spider-Man, and then move on to the next step.


Step 6: Adding Shadows

We’ve reached the final step of our Spider-Man drawing tutorial. It’s time to introduce shadows. Since we’re aiming for a classic comics style, let’s implement shadows in the same manner. Outline the shadowed areas and use dark hatching to shade them. Keep in mind that we have plenty of lessons on Marvel heroes, so don’t hesitate to try drawing Cyclops from the X-Men, among others.



That wraps up our comprehensive lesson on how to draw the remarkable Spider-Man. We hope you thoroughly enjoyed this tutorial. Stay tuned for more exciting drawing lessons coming your way!
