    It occured to me tonight how little I've drawn my favorite character recently. So I've remedied that!

    This took me a few hours earlier, enjoy!
    :yay:

    I see Erik Larsen is a big influence, cool.

    spidey's decent except perhaps those two fingers of his are a tiny bit long...

    your iceman is probably a lil too rounded, doesn't feel right.

    Erik Larsen is a big influence indeed. I think he perfected Spider-Man's eyes during the later part of his run on Amazing. I try to go for that as much as I can.

    It's a perspective shot so his hand and extended fingers are comin' at ya a little bigger.

    Also, I find this piece of reference by J. Scott Campbell to be very "handy"...

    ... and as for Iceman, definitely not my best, I went for classic here but prefer to cut loose 90s style with the spikes and hair. I envision him as being more smoothed out like a living Ice Sculpture, but I guess being rounded is more fit for Silver Surfer. Maybe that's why they edged him off and gave the illusion of being somewhat blocky in the first place.

    the thing is that the curled up fingers are smaller than the extended ones if that's the look you are going for.

    either way, some are longer than the others, nothing major just some insight.

    That's pretty damn badass!

    I'm going have to agree on the Iceman problems... But I hope yuou realise we're only saying that because you're clearly capable of some REALLY great artwork :up:

    Personally, I'm really digging the elongated fingers. If you're going for crazy perspective and intense, I feel playing with anaotmy like that can work really well.

    I hope you're hitting Marvel with ur art... Keep trying man, you got something!

    Oh no for sure and thank you all, I'll defend the fingers cuz it's more a stylistic choice, but my Iceman was a little off this time. Far from my worst, but far from my best too.

    Looks great, man! Love the Larsen/Campbell influence!

    Yeah, there are anatomy issues, but, as another artist once (sarcastically) told me, "Yeah...and so many comic artists use correct anatomy!"

    Good work!

    Here's one I just did a month or so ago:

    I'm in awe of yor Larsen-eyes on your Spidey. Every time I go for that shape, he looks like a mouse. :csad:

    I've been drawing Spidey heads since Jr. High on notebooks, napkins, you name it trying to perfect the Bagley/Larsen/Campbell eyes. I've got it down to a science.

    You've got all the reflective lines in the right places, your pic almost looks like Bryan Hitch actually.

    Bryan Hitch? You had me at napkins, man!

    I used to draw a decent Larsen-Spidey, but that was a LONG time ago. I always thought Larsen just had the most animated and "Spider-like" Spidey. Always crazy and contorted...

    Hell yeah, it breaks my heart to hear so many fanboys whining about "realism" these days.

    It's a comic! Realism is cool and all, but sometimes it's fun to break the rules! I'm not saying go Humberto Ramos-crazy or anything, but there's no need to adhere to every single rule in a world where guys can climb walls and get all green and moody when they get mad! Come on!

    Mike Weiringo wasn't a "realistic" artist, and he was one of the best in the biz!

    Incredibly talented and incredibly unfair he had to leave us.

    I followed his stuff since he took over on Sensational Spider-Man during the Ben Reilly days.

    I've been meaning to buy some blue pencils too. Everytime I check out 'Ringo and his process, he was always drawing the framework in blue and going over it in normal pencil or inks.

    That's gotta be easier when laying out my perspective grids and anatomy frames considering I don't have a lightboard!

    It is! I've got some that are eraseable. They're awesome. Give me a little time and I'll post up a link! I just know that they're ColErase Blue....I'll get you a link, man.

    Booyah!

    They come in all colors, but the blue doesn't reproduce, it's easy to see (some non-photo blue pencils are damn near invisible, and you have to stab the paper to leave a mark), it erases, and it doesn't mess with your ink like some wax-based color pencils do!

    Hope that helps! Also, Blick is really good about shipping the stuff quickly! I ordered 10 of them, and I got them the same week!

    HHhhhmmm... Where have I seen this before? ;)

    Yea, the realism convos bug me nowadays. Don't get me wrong, I believe Hitch is one of the all time best comic book artists ever, but I like different styles for different reasons. I'm a huge fan of Ramos and Sienkiewicz, and I get really pissed off when people whine about the anatomy. That's not the point of certain styles of art! I still love Perez and Adams, it's just different.

    I think it was Gil Kane, or Bscema, or another one of the classics that was talking about Kirby when he said:

    "Sometimes people would say, the hands too small, or the nose is a bit wrong, or this proportion is a little off. DOESN'T MATTER, every page exlpoded with so much energy, and was so different, unique, that non of that other stuff mattered!"

    'Nuff said!
