I had this image idle in my hard drive for quite some time now. Originally I had planned to paint the background as well, but I needed to have it done as fast as possible as this has a chance of being printed in a French Magazine. They didn’t commission this piece though, just something I had wanted to know if I could do.
It originally started of as a speed paint during one of those periods that i was conceptualizing scenes for Planet Hulk. Way back, it has always been a frustration to come up with a pose for Spider-man as quickly as possible. He has always been the most dynamic character in comics (IMO). So testing myself, I came up with this pose. I imagined him breaking inertia while in mid-swing…
The decision to paint him with the movie costume was much later. And that took quite some time as I was dreading the detail of his costume. Fortunately I found an efficient enough method to make the process well… efficient. But still not efficient enough as you can see; I still had to use a picture for the background.
It was only necessary that I grab a font that is very similar to the movie font
All in all it was really fun to draw. And I do hope you like it as well
