Not too many pictures can touch you like this one has for me. The color is as stunning as the art work. God has trully blessed you with a gift that can reach others, you should be very proud, but at the same time humble. Keep up the awesome work, it is all up hill from here. Å
This is seriously the best spider-man picture Iv'e ever seen. I'm goin' nuts, I love it so much. There's so much emotion and attention to detail in one scene, and the color, vibrant enough to add serious tone depth without distracting the viewer from any one subject on the page. You two make amazing work together, and it inspires me to be a better artist. please please PLEASE keep up the great work!
When I was 12 years old (I'm 52 now) this story was told for the first time in "The Amazing Spiderman", a comic that you could buy off the stands for .25 cents. I followed the story through the entire arc, waiting impatiently each month, checking the stands, waiting for the next issue to come out.
This story is one of perhaps 6 or7 that I feel define what has now come to be known as the "silver" age of comics... the late 60's to the late 70's... The advent of the "Crisis On Infinite Earths" story line, where so many characters died or were transformed, marks the end of that era in the minds of many people my age, and heralded in the modern age of comics. Many independent titles and small companies were beginning to make their mark, and the two company monopoly enjoyed by Marvel and DC was coming to an end.
This illustration is perfect as a cameo, or editorial homage, to that story line, which covered several titles, and unfolded over more than a year of monthly title releases.
Very, very well done. You should be extremely proud of your work on this.
