update: check out Carlos' pencils and roughs here: [link]


:evillaugh: o0OH I've been itching to post this for weeks :D
This is page 1 of the brand new Marvel Heroes comic that came out last week! Many congratulations to the talented =NeMAfronSPAiN who drew this great page, this issue being his first published Marvel stuff, Well done to you dude! ^-^
An I was lucky enough to be given the oppertunity to colour up this bad-boy... it introduces the comic's idea to bring all the well known Marvel Heroes/Villains together under one title, and I figured it was probably going to be re-used as an intro for the first few issues I wanted to make sure I did a damn fine job of it. Never spent so long on one single page before but I'm still pleased with the results. :)
Anyways, hope you enjoy guys, and go buy the comic if you haven't already! Issue 1 comes with a funky Hulk mask, just in time for Halloween as well as more great artwork from Carlos and others :) ^-^

Pencils: Carlos Gomez (aka =NeMAfronSPAiN )

This is flipping brilliant, as well as being 'inspirational' if you get my meaning! The colouring is magnificent, as usual. :D

hey, thanks for the comment! Sorry about the size! I would have loved to post it larger but I'm afraid I can't take any risks with people stealing/cropping/reposting etc.. Last thing I want is to get in trouble with Marvel for people making false prints of this! ;)

I doubt it... I don't really know to be honest... they're usually good at credits on strips, but this was just a single page one so I don't think they bothered.. covers tend to be the same too :/

Hey, thanks for the comment! I'm really glad you like it :) it's kinda tricky to explain how I work as it really depends on the project! With the background on the spidey panel I had my flat colours for the background, then numerous shadow layers on top, one solid block for the left hand side of the buildings then I selected certain buildings and made gradient shadows coming up from the ground. Three other points that are worth noting are; the lines in the background are brown, not black (which helps to knock them back) the whole thing is blurred slightly so Spidey is in sharp focus, and there's also a light yellow gradient highlight coming in from the top right as though the sun is shining. \:] Anyway, I'm pleased you like it. :)
Some of your work's great btw, I'm watching you now ^-^
