Spiderman is a superhero created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko. He appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics, as well as in a number of movies, television shows, and video games.

In his story, Spiderman is the alias of Peter Parker, an orphan raised by his Aunt May and Uncle Ben in New York City after his parents Richard and Mary Parker died in a plane crash. Lee and Ditko had the character deal with the many struggles of adolescence and finances.

This tutorial is made for Spiderman fans that would like to draw him with the very muscular body they are so familiar with. Some art teachers would have students draw a light stick frame, and then add ovals, then the final edges, but that’s a lengthy and subtle process. Those that go on to draw in middle or high school will do well to learn more about how that works, but elementary students tend to need quicker results.

This tutorial shows students how to draw some basic muscle-y shapes and then connect them for a finished body. It will provide the silhouette that is needed and the erasing is kept to a minimum. Students can then get on to the really fun part … drawing Spiderman’s costume!

Getting Started with Drawing Guides

The best way to get students off to a good start to any drawing lesson is to show them how to use guides as a reference point.

You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this site have a dashed line running through the center of each step, in both horizontal and vertical directions. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow.

Drawing skills are all about getting the size and placement of lines on paper, so having some visual reference point to get started, will always help anyone learn how to be a little more accurate.

So does that mean students need to get out a ruler to draw a big fat line down the center of their paper before they start? Goodness no, please don’t! That will most likely be hard to erase and distract from any finished art. No, simply fold the sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The beauty is that by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will disappear.

And now, on to the Spiderman drawing project.

Materials for How to Draw Spiderman

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
