. He can climb walls and swing high over his home of New York City to name just a few, and these along with his awesome costume have made him very popular!
If you are a spider-fan, then you may want to know how you can learn how to draw Spiderman, then you’re on the right guide!
We hope that you enjoy this step-by-step guide on how to draw Spiderman in just 6 steps!
How To Prepare For This Spider-Man Drawing
Right before you, you will see the steps to learning how to draw Spider-Man. This is a guide that will be trickier than some, but we know that you can do it!
The reason that it can be trickier is that Spider-Man has fairly realistic proportions. This can make it tricky to draw him, as if you get the proportions a bit off, then it can throw off the whole drawing.
That’s why you can make it easier on yourself by preparing as much as possible. To make this image more manageable, we portrayed Spider-Man in a relaxed, simple pose.
This will make it easier, but there are still challenges. First, try to break down the image into its most basic shapes.
This is something we will cover in greater detail as we move on, but needless to say, it can help just to visualize how the muscles are shaped and how they relate to one another.
You can also consult additional sources to use along with the images in our guide. One of the best sources to use would be the comics, video games and films that Spidey has appeared in.
If you can find some sources that are posed similarly to our example, then that would be perfect! Using different sources can also help you to create different poses once you have the hang of this one.
If you’re still having trouble drawing the proportions, then try to find a friend or a family member with a similar physique and get them to pose for you. They’ll probably be happy to do so when they learn they will be the model for a superhero!
These are examples of easy ways to make this drawing easier, so we hope they helped as you begin this guide.
How to Draw Spiderman – Let’s get Started!
In the first step of our guide on how to draw Spiderman, we will be drawing his head. Spiderman’s mask is very distinctive, ad it is composed of a tight mask over his head with large white eyes.
Using the reference picture as your guide, start with some curved lines for the head outline of Spiderman.
Then, you can draw some lines down from the head and then extend them horizontally for his shoulders.
Then we will be drawing his eyes which will be made up of some thick curved lines that have a sharp point at the top. Once you have the head complete, you can move on to step 2!
Step 2 – Now, draw the chest and arms for Spiderman
Drawing Spiderman can be a bit tricky as his costume is tight-fitting, and that means having to draw musculature.
Drawing human bodies can be difficult as it can be tricky to get it looking right, but we will take it slowly for your Spiderman drawing!
We will be using some curved lines for the shoulders for Spiderman, and then draw the start of his arms.
Then we will be drawing his chest and waist for Spiderman, and he will be ready for some more details in the next steps.
Step 3 – Now, draw some more of the body
We will continue drawing his body in this step of our guide on how to draw Spiderman.
First, you can finish off the arm on the right, which will have a balled fist at the end of it. Then, you can use some curved lines for the forearm on the left.
Once you have that drawn, we can then start to draw his waist and the top halves of his legs.
Before moving on to the next steps, we will be adding some lines on his waist and throughout his chest and arms for the start of the pattern of his outfit.
When you’ve recreated the lines in the example, we are ready for step 4!
Step 4 – Next, draw the rest of the body outline for Spiderman
This part of your Spiderman drawing will show you how to finish off the outline of Spiderman’s body. First, draw the other fist on the left-hand arm.
Then we will finish off the knees and rest of the legs for Spiderman to complete the outline.
With the outline done, we have to add a giant spider symbol onto his chest, otherwise he would just be a guy in a bodysuit!
Now you’re ready to finish off the final details of his suit in the next step, so let’s proceed.
Step 5 – Now, finish off your Spiderman drawing
To really finish off the spider theme, Spiderman has a web pattern all throughout his suit, and that is what we will be drawing now for this part of our guide on how to draw Spiderman.
This part can be trickier than it looks, so be sure to follow the reference image closely as you draw!
The web on his face starts by a central point on his nose, and then they follow the curve of his head. The rest of the web designs head straighter down for his legs and arms.
Once you have drawn these web designs, you have completed this guide! Before you move on, you can also add some details of your own to finish it off.
Maybe you could draw a background that reflects your favorite scene from a Spiderman comic, movie or TV show!
You could also draw him facing one of his villain adversaries or one of his allies. These are just a few ideas you could go for, so how will you finish off this Spiderman drawing?
Step 6 – Finish off your Spiderman drawing with some color
We will be finishing off your Spiderman drawing with some amazing colors in this final part.
Spiderman is well known for his bright red and blue costume, and that is what we went for in our example image.
You could go for this color scheme but there are more that you could go for! Spiderman has had a few different suit variations throughout the years, so you could replicate one of your favorite Spiderman variations.
Then you can decide which art mediums you will use to complete the colors.
You could use some colored pens or markers to replicate the way the colors look in the comic books, but any mediums you use will look amazing!
