'Spiderman' Graphite Drawing



A graphite drawing of 'Spiderman'. Both spiderman and wolverine are my 2 favourite comic characters. I had done a graphite drawing of 'Hugh Jackmans wolverine' earlier [link]. So i decided to draw the 'Andrew Garfield' spiderman from the film that came out this year.

I also consider this my first 'full graphite drawing'. As my other drawings in my gallery were me getting to grips with graphite, as I only started using them 8 weeks ago. This was also one of the toughest drawing i have ever done, taking about 60 hours over 6 days.

And I spent 20-25 hours of that time drawing each of the holes on the suit individually and creating the different shades and depths and lighting of each one. The total holes on the suit are 1563 (i counted i know that's really sad, but i needed to know). And i was surprised to find that the head had more holes on it consisting of 805 whereas the body made up the rest of 758, to total up to 1563. I thought about other simpler solutions, but knew i would not get the effect that i wanted. So i decided to do them the hard way one at a time (which at times i seriously regreted, but i'm glad I perservered).

I also really appreciate all the fav's, comments and positive critques, which only pushes me to want to get better. In particular my watchers who helped me to perservre during the long tedious drawing process which i posted on DD (they know who they are).

Here are some of my other 'fanart' graphite drawings.

The drawing was done on A3 Bristol Board paper using standard and mechanical graphite pencils.

The reference i used is here [link].

This has to be one of the best Marvel fan-art I've seen, considering most of your work is. I really like how you did the holes on the suit, too, because if you hadn't, it would have the same impact, or effect it has now. I truly think that is is one of my favorite art pieces I have seen on dA, and I'm not even a huge fan of Spider-man, either. Personally, I prefer DC more. But still, this piece is amazing, I love the black/white, I love the eyes, the shading and lighting, the texture, everything on it is amazing. Nice work, my friend.
