|Mythos: Spider-Man, Page 7. 2007. Acrylic and gouache on bristol board, 11 x 17".|
In this scene from Mythos: Spider-Man, Peter Parker's newly-acquired Spider powers allow him to dodge a speeding car by leaping up a wall. I had a tough time with his face, trying just about everything to get it right. Years later, I'm still not happy with the result, but at least I got the expression I was going for. You can see below that I gave up in the pencil stage, thinking I could "fix it later." Sometimes this strategy works, but it's usually easier to solve problems of draftsmanship before the application of paint.
