Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 324

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #21 VARIANT COVER. 2016.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

Amazing Spider-Man #21 is out today (full details here). I provided a variant cover featuring many of Spidey's fallen foes — and a certain fallen girlfriend — all conveniently arranged in a double helix (of sorts).

Although I knew the basic composition and subject matter, I took a couple reference shots (with my trusty iMac webcam) to find the best pose for Spidey.


Grrrrrrr

    1. Thanks so much! I miss Spidey sometimes, but I don't think I could ever keep up with the monthly deadlines.
