Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 66
When drawing Spider-Man, I like to refer to a small toy that my roommate got for me in Japan. The multi-piece mini-statue came in a clear plastic egg and is surprisingly well sculpted. It allows me to visualize Spidey in a number of poses, being especially helpful for reflections. The above study is pretty much a direct copy.
Also helpful is yet another toy, this one being fully articulated. I use it primarily for reflections and leg anatomy, which used to give me a lot of trouble.
