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. Thanks, Jason! He actually has the piece framed... not sure if it's currently on his wall though.
