    great inking very clean and solid. though the web design on his face the curve of the curve of the web should be curving towards the center of the face and not away. This is a common mistake people commit when drawing Spiderman. I've seen well respected professional comic artist commit this blunder. For me the Spiderman costume is always to hardest to get down right. If you don't follow the curve and contour of the body when wrapping the web design it will totally flatten your drawing.

    OOps maybe I should have read all of the posts here. Loston already addressed the issue. Sorry just ignore this post. Move along keep it going.

    It is some of your best work, angel. I really like the Ditko feel of the costuming for sure. Please allow me to make a comment or two though.

    I'm not sure why you chose to reverse the webbing on Spidey's mask as you've done here. Ditko did that a couple times in his run by accident, but for the most part, the webbing on the mask runs the opposite way, following the same direction you've indicated on the rest of the costume like this:




    Again, your decision to reverse the flow of the webbing might have been a stylistic choice, but it does seem off-model and strange to me. I recognize that some artists just like to bend the rules on costuming, etc, but you want to be careful about that if you ever decide to produce art for a portfolio, etc. Editors won't have the benefit of knowing what your intentions were when you set down to draw such an illustration. They're just going to look at a drawing like this and think, "Hmm--the mask is wrong." Just be careful about such matters when and if the time comes to show your work.

    Another thing I wanted to mention was that your buildings. I think your perspective is very good here, but the buildings themselves seem very generic and lack credibility. It's just a good idea to find some reference to help you give your buildings some character and architectural credibility. That goes a long way to making your city more convincing and more believable. Adding in some distinctive architectural features each building like a few chimneys, water towers, arching windows, awnings, hanging flagpoles, billboards, overhanging lights, and even adding some gargoyles and an overhanging ledge would help. Little things can really jazz up a city environment without having to resort to going crazy with reference.

    Be careful with the digital inking. Don't overdo the feathering on the black parts of Spidey's costume. Too much of that can be distracting. Be sure to keep the feathering uniform and avoid too much wobble in the line. The feathering an the area of the thighs closest to Spidey's knees could be much neater than it is.

    I like that you had the guts not to put a halo around Spidey's neck, allowing the shadow on his chin to blend in with the shadows on the building in the background. I think you kind of chickened out though where the top edges of the building layers are concerned though. You really don't need to highlight those things, IMO. It's honestly a tad distracting, visually speaking. Spidey needs to be the focus, so it's best to just keep things simple. Any depth you'd be losing on the side of the building in the background as a result of filling the entire side of the building in as a solid black would be very miniscule. You're not gaining a lot by including those edges, and the distraction they cause might actual be more harmful than good. My opinion anyway. When in doubt, keep things simple. It's a good rule of thumb to adhere to.

    My comments, though lengthy are about small things in the grand scheme of things. This is certainly one of your best works to date, and shows your recent growth as an artist. I hope my comments will help you here, and I wish you all the best on your artistic journey, man. I feel like you're about to hit a growth spurt in your artwork, so now's the time to take advice, work on anatomy and your overall execution. Focus on getting to the next level of drawing. You'll always have my support, amigo.

    I have yet to come across anything affordable that can do that size scans...or are you using digital cameras?
