Great for Spider-man comics.

Spider webs are an easy thing to draw, but you mention several little things (that I agree with but) I probably wouldn't think of off the top of my head. And which people who didn't grow up with a spider-loving dad may not know. So good job putting everything together.

Hmm... what would've been even better was if you'd mentioned how to draw the other types of webs, though. Orb Weavers are the easy ones (and pretty neat), but I never really figured out how Black Widows put their webs together. And there's other types of spiders with their own unique-looking webs.
The bottom right does look like a different type of spider, though. There's a sheet-like spider web (I'm not sure of the type of spider that makes them) that resembles those spoke-less webs. And definitely makes more sense to be inside a building than a bunch of orb weaver webs.

You're making me think I need to do a part three and four! Thanks for the kind words, and the observations, really appreciate the feedback!

I really like this one. Especially when talking about the en masse webbing. I could easily see using that as a method to show lots of webs in the mid or background of a picture, and use the more detailed ones at the start in the foreground to help suggest depth. :)

Yes, 100% that's a great application for the approach. So glad you liked it!
