My personal definitive way of drawing iconic characters

Spidey’s got to be skinny. I mean he’s got muscles, but they shouldn’t show.

I always liked how Erik Larson drew him, skinny, with the flexibility of Tod McFarline but not so cartoony. Spidy’s suit seemed darker during Larson’s run and I like the idea that the blue part is so dark it’s almost black.
