    clayman101's sketchbook... update June 12

    I'll post more as I get it cleaned up and scanned in. But to start, here's one of the most successful Spideys I ever drew. It's a little old, I wouldn't approach it the same way now (the figure's right arm is so wrong), but I still like it. More to come.Name:  spiderman01 for post.jpg

    Am I doing this right? I think so...

    I'm not sure yet how to add to a thread, so I'm trying it this way first, by replying to my own thread. This is a character I drew up for a project. I'll post some of the concepts I worked up before I settled on this design later. If you're wondering why I didn't draw the legs, I knew the character would not be shown below the hips.
    This is the "Bug Driver" as I think of her, in her development phases. You can see how I used notes from different ideas to come up with her. The colour, and the framed layout were both done quickly. I intend to do a proper design sheet eventually.

    Just press "Edit" in the lover right corner of your post, then go "advanced", then "manage attachments". Here you can add and remove images.
    Your images look very nice, but do you maybe draw them a little small? Would like to see the images a little larger. Linework looks good, but would be nice to see the more clear detail a bigger image would give. Keep it up!

    Thanks for the tip. I don't draw small at all, this size just seemed appropriate to post at. When I had a 1000 x pixel ratio, they appeared huge on my screen, wouldn't even fit. They both appear at about 6" x 5" on my screen, I'm curious if it shows that size on yours. I'll be checking your book post haste.

    hey welcome to CA sketchbooks!
    if you want to update, you did it right you just have to reply to your own thread
    editing is if you want to change a particular thread, for example the first one to change your title to like a different date to show you updated that day
    nice comic book style, few things in the first spidey bother me but you already noticed that stuff
    keep updating!

    thanks for the comment
    Your new colorpost looks good. Her left shoulderplate though, does not look quite right.
    To add a link o your sb you have to go to "User CP" in the above menu, go to "Edit Signature" and write a little something like; "this is my sketchbook, please comment", then put a link in a word or the sentence by highlighting it, and then press the globe with a link on it in the above menu. Add the link to your sb-thread and presto.

    good luck sir

    Busted. Good eye. Her entire left arm isn't the original. She used to have a staff that she held with her arm out, then up, gripping the staff. For what she was being used for, there wasn't enough space for the entire picture. So, to get her into her space, I had to get rid of the staff and change the arm to a tighter pose. I could never quite get the new arm to look natural. I should post the original sketch to show the pose.

    Welcome to CA! Good start. Some varied line thickness might make your linework pop a bit more. Dig the Spidey. Keep it up!
