Itsy bitsy Spider
A little something different. People always ask me what my fave character to draw is and truth is, there are too many to name. Definitely not a clear cut favorite. But as far as one of the least favorite characters to draw...well that would have to be the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.
Now I love the character and love how John Romita and JRJR and Michael Golden and Todd McFarlane interpreted him and the 2 movies are simply brilliant...it's just as a character to draw...well, I just can't get past the webbing. Can't figure it out and to me, it always feels like I'm drawing treads on a tire or windows on a 100 story skyscraper. To do that every panel, 22 pages an issue. Yowsa! This one was for Ale's son who just had a birthday and the Webcrawler is one of his favorite characters. So exceptions were made...damn webbing!
