Spidey Happy Holidays 2008


Post It Notes:

a little info on the above image

I drew this today right after all the commotion and hullabaloo of last nights family gathering awaiting Christmas 2008 and honestly, what I had in mind of drawing was the original Spidey costume (I dont even know why I chose him in the first place, all I had in mind was him the whole time) with the elf hat and santa loot but as I tried to sketch him up and I had a hard time doing his costume, them web linings on his tights are damn hard, geez, I thought it would not be difficult but boy was I surprised, so what better way to alleviate the situation by replacing him with his more meaner more cooler black costume….NOT! I had a hard time doing it as well, geeez, me drawing muscles were in knots. Spideys black costume made it hard for me to put the lighting points and shadows. hehehhe..more practice (which I am guilty at not been doing much) and to add insult to injury I tried to ink this f@#$ piece and what you have above kinda looks goofy but I posted this piece solely to greet each and everyone at cyberland for the holidays so you all have to forgive me for the above piece in the spirit of christmas sake (even when looking at it makes one think of black Spidey stealing some lot in some bank somewhere on Christmas, meany looking spidey)…hahaha…I sucked more in inking not that I dont suck at pencils as well…ha-huum…one man’s work in progress as usual. Forgive the inks, the mean pose and them feet, goddam feet and yeah, them shadows mostly also. 🙂  Heres the scanned pencils (which is little tolerable than the inked version, but still a lousy at it) before the tragedy of inking took place…critics are sure welcomed folks (i.e. john, alex and suede) in this season of giving.spideyxmassketch

    Well first of all, glad to see you’re posting again, man. You never shoulda stopped. Also, your Spider-Man piece definitely isn’t as bad as you make it out to be, but I’m sure some more practice would help build some confidence there. I appreciate the effort though… just to greet us… I feel special now.

    tnx for dropping by john, glad to hear from pros such as yourself, i will hopefully flex my drawing muscles more often come new year and build some semblance of confidence in me sketches and stuff, i’ll probably do pencils for now and focus on that firstly.
