Intro: Start drawing Spider-Man with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Spider-Man from Marvel Comics, start by drawing a big oval in the middle of the page. When drawing the oval, make it narrower at the bottom like an egg. This will be the basic shape for Spider-Man's head.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the oval that divide it evenly. Draw one line vertical and one horizontal. When drawing the horizontal line. curve it up a little bit to follow the shape of the oval. These will be construction lines that will help you place Spider-Man's features later on.
Step 3: Now draw two big right triangles right on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. These are basic shapes for Spider-Man's huge eyes on his mask.
Step 4: That's it for the initial sketch of Spider-Man from Marvel Comics! You have the basic Spider-Man shape. Now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
Step 5: Darken if the shape of Spider-Man's head. Draw a more refined jaw line by squaring the bottom of the oval shape a bit so it looks more like a head and less like an egg.
