How to Draw Spiderman and Venom

Artist: Dawn / May 27, 2014

Step 1.

We will start with a simple shape to sketch out the face from. Add the facial guidelines like so.

Step 2.

Draw in the structure of Spiderman's face shape first on the left side like you see here.

Step 3.

Now you will draw in Venom's face structure and shape along with some of the mouth outline.

Step 4.

Starting on the right side, we will draw in Venom's sharp pointed teeth which are also cone shaped. They almost look like teeth from a piranha.

Step 5.

Next, draw in the long, thick slithering tongue that has a crooked curve. Add the indent line down the center of the tongue and make sure it tappers off into a point at the end.

Step 6.

The detailing that you will draw along the far right side of Venom's face is also his mouth and teeth. The stretched open mouth has some torn flesh or dripping slim that makes it seem connected to the bottom jaw. Draw in the long slender outline of t   

Step 7.

Next, begin sketching out the skin detailing above the top part of the mouth which is also a tight wrinkle or crinkle. The lining should be dark in some areas.

Step 8.

You can now sketch in some of the sharp teeth on the bottom jaw and as you can see there is only three. Add detailing to the gum line, then proceed to step nine where you will draw in the rest of Venom's face.

Step 9.

All you have to do now is sketch out the hook shaped rough lined eye. There should be points and contouring at the same time.

Step 10.

Now we can start drawing Spider-Man's face. Start with the almond shaped eye that should be just as large as Venom's. Add the inner shape to create the border around the eye as seen on his mask.

Step 11.

Add the stripes that flow down the face. As you know these lines will help create the web design of his costume.

Step 12.

Lastly, sketch in the small curved lines across the vertical lines you just made in step eleven. This will make the web effect. Erase the mistakes and guides so you can add texture detailing to Venom's face as you will see in the line art.

Step 13.

Here is the finished drawing folks. Now you can add the texture definition to Venom's face like you see here before you go ahead and color in your work.

Description: Well, I'm back folks and with my return I bring several lessons that will blow the minds of comic book character fans as well as people who like the Alien/Predator movies. I will start with the very first drawing I made during a live stream at Here is "how to draw Spiderman and Venom", step by step. I know some of you may spell Spidy's name Spider-Man, but I just spell it as a whole word. The concept for this creation came as I was wondering what type of cool comic book character I could recreate. I was torn between Spiderman and Venom, so I did a split view of them both. This was such a fun drawing to create and I had a blast while sketching it out, and finishing it live with all of you who watched. I tried laying out the lesson as easy as possible so I hope you all have fun drawing Spiderman and Venom in a split view. Stick around folks because there is a bunch more lessons for you to go through and tackle.
