" . . . said the Spider to the Fly."
This is his stage appearance with pale skin and no tattoo because he's drawing the audience into his illusion.
I have mixed feelings about the Magic Kaitou anime introducing Spider.
Having Hakuba focusing on Spider rather than Kaitou Kid takes away the excitement of Kaito trying to live a double life, but I think Spider is a pretty cool character.
I treated myself to a set of manga inking pens and decided to experiment with them. Didn't get quite the effect I wanted with the web background, but I still like it.
This picture was not traced (although I wanted to throw my pencil through the wall after spending a freakin' hour and a half on just his hand).
. I also used
's Foreshortening video
to help with Spider's hand.

I also looked at the first 5 minutes of Magic Kaitou Episode 7.
You can see the process of how I drew and colored him in my Tumblr: [link]
