Today we bring you a new drawing lesson in which we will tell you how to draw Spider-Man’s head. If you coped with the lesson on how to draw Wolverine’s head, then you can cope with this too. To make this superhero lesson as simple as possible, we divided it into several simple steps and tried to describe them in the smallest detail. So let’s start creating!
As you can see, we are now going to draw a head in a half-turn and slightly tilted down. At this step the head of friendly neighbor is shaped like an inverted asymmetrical egg. To make it easier to make changes and erase guidelines later, use very light lines to perform the first steps.
Draw the lines of the facial symmetry. The vertical line divides the face into two parts and shows the center (nose bridge) of the Spidey’s face. The second line shows us the place of eyes. By the way, the facial symmetry lines must also be performed with the least pressure on a pencil.
So, we continue the instruction on how to draw Spider-Man’s mask. With the help of the guiding lines sketched in the second step draw the Spider-Man’s eyes. You need to give them a characteristic shape like our artists did. In different comics you could see different contours of these very Spider eyes, but we decided to choose the most classic version, similar to the works of John Romita sr.
Erase all the guidelines from the Spidey’s head. Make the lines Spider-Man’s head and eyes darker. To do this, use a darker pencil, marker or ink. Draw the Peter Parker’s shoulders, so that the head does not seem to hang in the air. Also, do not forget to outline the contours of the nose and jaw under the mask, this will make your drawing of Spider-Man’s head more natural.
From this step we will draw the web grid on the Spider-man’s mask. From the space between the eyes begin to draw smooth and fine lines that will disperse across the mask, moving to the suit. Try to convey the shape of the head by these lines. In fact, different artists draw a rather different web. Some (such as Todd McFarlane) draw a fine grid, while others (such as John Romita sr.) draw very large web grid.
Now draw the transverse part of the web. If in the previous step, everything was done right, then we get this beautiful web. So, let’s proceed to the last step of the instruction about how to draw Spider-Man’s face. The web pattern should be proportional and square. Try to keep the grid from being disproportionate or too stretched.
And at the finishing line we must add shadows. In our sketch the light falls from the left side. With this in mind, we add the shadows on the right side. On the right side of the head and the lower part of the chin we add a hatching. On the right shoulder add a cast shadow.
