Time is not on my side


This one either took too long, or time just got away from me. Either way, i pushed myself. I LOVE Spidey. He got me into comics and super heroes in general. The first comic i read was Spidey. I used to draw him all day every day. Then, i stopped. I focused on learning this medium, and just kinda got focused on other things. As time past, i guess i was intimated by the character, seeing what every great artist does with him and having my own ideas on how he should be handled. Then i met Chris Brunner. Spider Man is a religion to him, and i thought i placed the character on a pedestal. So the intimidation factor went up. I deicide it was time, get back in the game. The kid in me has an elite standard for Spidey and Venom. Inks to follow.

I really like the like going from Spideys head to his back leg. The line really makes his motion pop.

keep grindin'
