Bats Devil and Spider by ChristopherStevens Bats Devil and Spider by ChristopherStevens
It's still surprising to me that I've never been asked to do a Spider-Man or Daredevil commission. I've been asked to include them in pieces, but never solo images. Weird, right? I'm still trying to find my take on Spidey. Narrow eyes or round? I like both, so I go back and forth on it. Batman is another work in progress. He's possibly the most flexible character design of all time. He can (and has) been interpreted in so many different ways and it still works when it's well done. This is a pretty straight forward take on Bats and DD, but I did like doing these. I was getting some rust out after being away from my board for so long.

Very nice, your Batman here looks very reminiscent of the model Alex Ross uses.

I love the eyes on Spiderman too, though I have to ask about the shading.  With the webbing, do you shade the base before adding them on top or have you already drawn them out before the shading?

Thanks, yeah I did seem to channel Ross on that Bats for some reason. 

I do the markers in layers. After the first layer, I inked the web lines and the second layer of marker was after that.

Ahh, smart!

Though I'm no good with markers, it's amazing to see how good your work is with them!  I need to practice hard.

Thanks. I think it works better than most of my previous attempts at Spidey.
