Painting Spider-Man

Mythos: Spider-Man, Page 22. 2007. Gouache and acrylic on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

Just a quick post today (but with lots of artwork).  By this point in my career (2007) I had settled into what would become my standard painting technique: a monochromatic underpainting in gouache, followed by a thin layer of Acryla Gouache for color, all on top of 11 × 17″ bristol board (standard size for comic book art).  I use mostly gouache these days, but it's still the same basic process.

I've also included some "Wacky Reference" from the weekly feature on my own blog. I'm nearing the 200th installment and celebrating with a contest. Full details here. It's your chance to win an original painting from me, and be featured on my blog. Happy Labor Day!

  1. My first thought was, "Hey, that character is created for Joseph Gordon-Levitt!" I like these paintings.

    1. I thought he was supposed to be some OTHER character.

    2. So, what I can say is—they've made a mistake. We should take everything in our hands and remake the movie with the right lead actor.

    3. Now that I look at the paintings with fresh eyes, I can see what you're talking about. That being said, I still think Garfield makes a great Peter. And Stone as Stacy is about as perfect as it gets.

    4. Oh, I still haven't saw the new one though (agonizingly awaiting blu-ray), I'm sure Stone is perfect, she's just always perfect. But that early morning I was looking at these paintings and clearly saw Joseph jumping from building to building, fighting robbers, kissing Stone... )

    5. It's definitely worth a watch. The cast is especially strong. I did miss having JJJ, though.
