View Full Version : The Amazing Spiderman

Hi guys,
Here is my effort for the Favourite Hero/Villain Project.
I found this pic on a site somewhere and just copied it (lazy me) but I might have a go at drawing spiderman somehow without copying...
Hmmm, I was not too happy with this pic. I was trying Watercolour Pencils to colour it and it looked terrible. So then I outlined everything with black pen. Then I went back over it all with the dry water colour pencil, and I liked the effect - nice and grainy, while not obliterating the wash. I sort of wish I didn't outline anything with the pen now though, I could have gotten the darks with the pencils which would have looked more uniform. But I don't consider it such a failure because I learnt a few techniques. Oh yeah, I did it on Medium tooth Watercolour Paper.
lol, Either I scanned it crooked or I drew Spider-man slightly levitating... I suspect it is the latter one.
Tip: It looks better if you stand really far away and squint, lol.


Here's some of that texture I was telling you about:


I think the pencil sketch looks better? Although Spider-man is levitating in it too. heh.

Excellent. Very sharp. I like it!

I always loved Spiderman as a kid... probably because we are both geeks. lol. You've inspired me; I'll probably post one of my crappy spiderman pics in a moment. :)

Spiderman, Spiderman.
Does whatever a spider can...
How come you never see 'im stuck in the toilet then?

This is cool. Although I can't say I've read a spiderman comic in years, he looks great. And it must have been a really long time - I don't know who that other guy is!

I definitely prefer the colour one.

Thanks you two.
Nathan, lol, thank you for the lovely poem about spiderman.
I've never read a comic about spiderman either. I used to watch the cartoons in the morning before school. That's also how I discovered the X-Men. Those cartoons were the greatest. I don't read comics often, but I love the art. However, I do almost have the whole Ren and Stimpy comic collection, plus 1 batman and 1 Judge dread and maybe a star trek in there somewhere...

Hey, hey Sherville!

I LIKE the effect you've gotten with the mixed media! Looks pretty good to me.

Nathangill - please don't use the word "spider" together with the word "toilet"! I'm speaking from first hand experience here!

Nice job of capturing the attidudes of Spidey and the clone. Good coloring job.

*grin*. First time I've heard the spiderman theme song called a poem. ;)

Thanks guys. I like the colouring too, that's the only reason I kept it :D
Woopla, I didn't realise it was the theme song?? Couldn't imagine why they'd stick a line about a toilet in there.... :D

That's totally awesome sherville!!! Excellent texture! I remember Spidey from both the comics and the cartoon show :) Nice composition with him back to back with his "evil" self!

Thanks, atiera. You wouldn't say it was so awesome if you saw the original I took it from... :eek:
