Hello, dear artists and Marvel comics fans! Today we will draw one of the most terrible and frightening fictional villains. Formally, it is an enemy of Spider-Man, but he also often appears in other Marvel comics. This monster sometimes looks like a man, but nevertheless he always remains an eerie, frightening creature not of our world. So let’s start this tutorial and learn how to draw Venom!


Step 1

So, first using a stickman (a man made of circles and sticks) we’ll depict the posture of Venom. At first, using an oval draw the head. Sketch out the vertical line of the facial symmetry, which will help us to find the center of the head. Using lines draw hands, spine and legs. Using circles draw fists.
