Peter Parker Spiderman cover by skottieyoung Peter Parker Spiderman cover by skottieyoung
Cover assignment was to simply do a Spidey/Peter Parker cover. The theme of showing half and half has been done many times but that's ok, there can be a few more.

The thing I've learned over the years is covers need to stand out on a shelf amongst 150 other comic book covers. This is a hard task. Going into a store you'll notice that the shelves are lined with skittles. Too many colors competing for your attention resulting in nothing really jumping out. With this piece, as well as many of my covers, I try to keep in simple with big, block colors. Here is white and red. White will stand out amongst the sea of colors, then the red will jump off that white and hopefully into your bag to take home!

Makes me think of an actor, but I can't think of his name right now. Gimme a while, and I'll get it.

You are so true. All the comic books competite with all their colorful covers, having the result that you will not look at any special. I also experienced that only the „simple“ covers with big color blocks pop out and will finally be taken home.

well you did your job very well here. I was just in the comic shop last week, and decided to pick up a Spiderman comic at random, this one caught my eye right away. Of course I also had to by issue 1, to go with it. That's a dirty trick you pulled on me there. I didn't even realize this was your art on the cover until a few days later, your style has changed a lot.

White is especially a smart choice for a cover these days.... Comics will always be colorful, but with the boom of crime and horror comics yours will have had quite the contrast! Very smart!

Your use of filters as texture and shadow are very effective. Definitely one of my favorite covers. :)

Hey, I was actually in a comic book store today and was instantly drawn to this cover! I even looked at my friend and said, "I'd read this just because the cover art rocks." Unfortunately, I then saw a couple of Deadpools and had to get those because, c'mon, it's Deapool. Good job! You certainly grabbed my attention in the middle of a crowded shelf!
