So hey, been a long time since a piece from me! I got a lot of mental imagery from this week's Weekly Challenge and really wanted to participate, but have been REALLY strapped for time, so today I rounded up several hours to devote to drawing an original sketch and then recreating it in pixel.

The piece itself? He's reverse Spider-Man. Of course. All the skills of a spider, but with the superior intellect and manual dexterity of a human. All powered by (what else?) radiation!

Pixel-wise, I wanted to play with the hyper-saturation with intense use of black, the sort of bright and dark contrast I think of when I think of comic books. I did end up using a low-sat purple for shadows and a couple AA colors, but all-in-all I'm happy with the color use. Some noted issues: Consistent size of lettering (it's hand-done), readability of second and third panels, level of detail in the third panel, the fact that the posing of our hero there is fairly boring (chosen since I would only be able to work on it today so I wanted to keep things simple).

The text is cheezy as hell, but that was mostly intentional actually. Again, modeling the comic book in my mind - seriously, it's reverse Spider-Man, this thing would not be a high-budget production.

Whether this is successful or not, I had fun with it, thanks to whoever came up with this challenge. If you've seen me posting around lately it should be clear that I'm no stranger to critique, so please, rip it to shreds! I'm pretty rusty at doing full pieces of my own, so I'm sure there's sufficient flaws in there.
