Your Friendly Neighborhood Spiderman

Hi everyone.

Yup I missed another post yesterday due to more work on the condo. But to make up for it, I decided to do two quick sketches today.
I realized that I hadn't done a sketch of my favorite super hero, Spiderman. Hands down my favorite character in the Marvel universe. Or he was.
Growing up I loved the fact that he had to juggle saving the city, and sometimes the world, protecting his secret identity, and keeping his marriage to Mary Jane together. The books had everything. Action, drama, romance, comedy. Reading Spiderman books back in the day were always entertaining.

And I loved how the artists continued to improve on the webcrawler's visuals. Todd McFarlane, love him or hate him, made Spidey's webslinging cool. Eric Larsen made the enemies awesome, the women hot, and started adding a lot of physical comedy to Spidey. Then Mark Bagley continued to refine on the styles set by the previous giants.

Anyway, I started by sketching an interaction between MJ and Peter that I've had in my head for a long time. I'm probably going to finish this up in the near future.

The second is me nodding my head to the recent Disney/Marvel news. I'm hoping that this doesn't actually come to be. But I thought it'd be a silly picture.

Both were done on my MacBook in CS3 using my Bamboo tablet.

See you all tomorrow.

  1. It will only be a little bit worse then Spider Ham. Come to think of it, a pig with the relative strength and agility of a spider is a fearsome thing.
