    • Your piece must include Spidey as the main focus.

    After the deadline there will be a Poll-thread containing all the final entries that will run for 4 days so everyone can vote for their favourite.

    Feel free to use any media or art style - all I ask is that you keep it clean thanks! (no obscene stuff etc - you know the drill )

    Sounds fun. And I'm coincidentally in a Spider-man mood. Once I finish a different piece with Spidey influence, I'll get to work on this.

    Welcome Asatira! Great to have you join us

    Come on peoples - 161views and just 3 joined so far (and Mahran had committed to join before I made the thread)!

    Which reminds me .. I previously ran these challenges in 2 parts with a roughs stage and finals stage - would people like that this time too?

    Rock on everyone

    Welcome aboard Gorde!

    I'm wondering if I should add a another week to the deadline to allow time for people to join in - what does everyone think? I can always extend it if it gets near and people need that bit extra time

    Having is not the same as wanting. It is not logical but it is often true.

    Hey G
    I don't mind either way really. I'll have mine finished before the 9th but if a couple of people ask for more time then yeh, lets push it a week or so. It would be very nice to have a lot of people involved in this challenge

    js1701: nice to have u with us

    gordebak: No prob, great to have u here

    Thanks. First time for me. May be an obvious question but... what exactly are we looking for in this picture...?

    that's cool - hopefully the first of many eh! The aim of this series of challenges is to provide a fun environment for people to push the dynamism in their art. The series will cover as many aspects of dynamism as possible: motion, angles, perspective, style, colour, etc... in this challenge the particular aim is to draw a pic of Spidey from a really dynamic angle! Try being adventurous with the piece and feel free to put Spidey in a scene with a situation happening that enhances the energy and story of the pic!

    Hope that helps! Any other questions just ask and I'l do my best to answer as soon as I can.

    Also remember that you can post roughs and WIPs in this thread if you'd like and ask for feedback. I know it's technically a challenge but constructive crits and advice is encouraged so please help each other out

    inital rough?

    I don't see any roughs up yet, but here's mine ( fully photoshop, which I suck at)... yes, the anatomy is wonky & way too muscular & it's weird but... tear me apart, it's the only way I'll get better!

    Lokin good! Yeah, just a little too muscular but it's great that you can do roughs with photoshop. I'm not comfortable doing that at all! I have mine roughed on paper and I'll probably have a very tight pencil drawing before I do anything digital.
    Really lookin forward to seeing your final piece.
    Keep up the great work

    Dacountno2 - great start man! - at this point its still pretty early on to give any helpful crits, however i can see that its already starting to become pretty busy with all the saturated colors in it, which is fine, but take care that it doesnt distract from the selling point of your image, which is spidey. you may want to knock the bright colors back a bit, maybe desturate them with a levels adjustment layer. then you can really have some freedom to lift spidey out more with some vibrant colors. keep going!

    NickyBeats: Great to have u with us, loved your SB...

    Dacountno2: This angle looks more dynamic. Maybe you could use 1 point pespective and have him falling from a height or something. In any case, great work, lookin forward to seeing the final version..

    okies, I'm done... for now

    much happier with this one.
    On a side note, I hate doing landscapes & environments. Always been a tad jealous of folks who like doing them...

    Wow! Awesome! peoples have been busy

    Great job on helping each other out with comments etc! Dacountno - great 2nd pic taking on the comments and it now really fits the challenge brief of a dynamic viewpoint! Loving the style and vibrant colours - only crit right now is his left leg (to our right) looks a bit too misshapen despite the cool wacky style - almost like the calf is part of the knee and the foot is a right foot.. I really like the pic though great work!

    Also welcome to the party NickyB and Mohog Have added your names to the list! (zaorr - you taking part? go on ya know ya want to! ;P and don't you worry a Batman challenge or two is deff planned dude!)

    Oh yeah NickyB The Name's Greg but I don't tend to use my real name in forums - just call me The7 if you like dude - I'm always shortening names

    Keep rocking everyone

    Zaorr: Loomis has a heroic proportions book!? *rushes out to the internet to see if it's public domain...

    I also dig the bats!

    The7: thanks man - I always have some minor issues with extreme foreshortening & overlapping; was trying for a socked feet look ( i always find it funny in the comics, that often his feet are just little points, even when guys like Mcfarlane & Lee are drawing him...)

    Just cant decide on what looks better: stylized or lifelike representational. Trying for a kewl happy medium I guess. I'll get there at some point!

    O.o whoa! lol didn't see that one coming but trust good ol Mohog to get crazy with the theme! Rock on dude - I love the humour in your wips +1 for cute Spidey n Venom! hehe

    One comment is remember to really push the Dynamic viewing angle - lets see some crazy perspective etc! Get that awesome imagination of yours into 3D space and imagine zooming the 'camera' around for the most epic view!

    Keep on rocking everyone!

    MoHog: Spiderman vs. Aliens? awesome! Predators would be neato too!
    Actually, any comic book character vs preds/ aliens is badass. except Superman.. his was a bit lame...

    VERY fond memories of the original Batman vs. Predator, back in... 91? 92?

    I'm stoked to see where this leads Mo!
