I did this painted character study of the WEB and approach it as if it was concepted for a movie or video game. Instead of it looking like spandex, I gave his costume a carbon fiber look. It was fun to paint.
I'll be posting some more painted WEB art in the near future.
I guess the cat's out of the bag... I'm working on one of the Red Circle One Shots...The WEB! And I'm very fortunate to be working with J. Michael Straczynski. I feel it's an honor to be working with him.
I've worked with Denny O'Neil, Devin Grayson, Chris Clairemont, Peter David and other comic writers in the past, but I got to tell you, I really like working from JMS' script. Everything is there in terms of visually and dialogue. Sometime with some scripts, they can be very dry without depth or substance or sometime the storytelling pacing can be off. So as a storyteller, I'll add more panels to slowdown the pacing to play out the story. But with JMS' script, it's all there.
Also Hilary Barta is inking over my pencils. I think that Hilary will do a bangup job. He did a great job inking over my art on BRAVE and the BOLD #25 which is due out July 15.
