Client: Convention Sketch/Private Commission
Media: Pencil, PITT Pen, COPIC Marker, white paint, and Berol Prismacolor colored pencil on 11" X 14" Strathmore Drawing paper

From MidOhioCon. Some young lady, dressed as Gwen Stacy, asked for a Gwen Stacy sketch for her boyfriend, who is named Adam. I felt like I was in INCEPTION. I was going to write "I felt like I was in an Escher drawing" but I want to be perceived as hip.

I think this Gwen looks like Lisa Kudrow, which was NOT my intention. I'm the King of Accidental Likenesses.

That's got to be the perks right there, great memories to go with great artwork.

I feel like there's more to this drawing, like how there's leaves blowing around both in the picture and in the time he's in when he's looking at it, kind of like that time of the year reminds him of then and he busts the picture out again... makes it kind of melancholy.

I have a question for you if you dont mind, what kind of white paint do you use? I know that I have seen artists use a bunch of different things, like white out pens etc.

Her hair looks really nice in this, as does her expression. It looks very quaint! :+fav:

Love the look on her face and the detail in Spidey's glove.

You know, I actually think she looks like Bryce Dallas Howard as well in this picture, usually you do your own take on Gwen completley - but to be able to get a random face to look like anyone is just incredible - and I love this and I love Gwen (and I love Inception) LOL - I'm full of love here haha. BTW Adam, will you be visiting the UK anytime soon? We'd really love to have you and Allison visit *and yes, I do speak for the nation LOL :)

YES! YES!YES! Gwen is my fave Spidey girl ! I love the way you draw her, you always capture her innocense :) Really beatiful work - I love the way it's a picture within a picture too.

This makes me very happy in a sad way. And now that Peter isn't married to Mary Jane any more either it seems even more poignant. Spider-man has really been helping me with my big break up (I mean, we only dated for a year and a half but we had been best friends since seventh grade). Seeing a picture like this, me being in the place I am (kind of a wistful, sad one, not yet moved on) kind of makes my week.

I t remind's me that it's okay to hold on to those memories as long as you don't let them hold on to you.

Or well. I know this is just a con sketch. But I like it. Is all I'm saying. :)

This is excellent, as usual, but I have to say your artist comments cracked me up. :)

Wow, you're one of those artists that continually inspires me. You have actually gotten better and better, the more work you do. I can't say that about a lot of artists in the comic book industry. Great work as usual! Thank you!
