Black Cat and Spidey by ChristopherStevens Black Cat and Spidey by ChristopherStevens
An older commission. Black Cat has grown on me over time. I didnt like doing commissions of her early on, but she's popular and I've had a lot of practice. Still experimenting with her look, but I enjoy playing with the shiny suit and different hair styles. The black and white contrast is always eye catching. Spidey is another work in progress character. Mostly with the eyes. I'm a fan of the round and narrow eye pieces, so I can never decide which I prefer.

Prismacolor and Copic markers on vellum bristol board.

I totally dig your gray scale colors in a lot of your artwork, gives your art sort of a classy noir edge feel to it. Keep up the phenomenal work you do.

Man you are the Frazetta of markers. I say that because, in your illustrations, I get the emotion and energy that I get from Frazetta's artwork.

Beautiful work. I really like the intricate elements at the top of the composition. The details on that webbing are amazing!

I just can't get over how sculptural your work is, there's just so much incredible depth you manage to pull out of a handful or gray markers. It blows me away every time.

Any tips for working on shiny suits/latex/vinyl?

ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2013
Thanks. Shiny is all about the contrast. Hot highlights next to dark shadows. It's actually one of the easier (and fun) textures to render because the contrast works so well, you can really play with it.

Thanks. Yeah, I get lost in stuff like hair. It's more fun to render. I get a little carried away sometimes as a result. This ones kinda borderline.

❥❥❥❥❥❥❥Tristan. although Kenneth`s report is cool... on thursday I bought a brand new Chrysler since I been making $4085 this-past/four weeks and in excess of ten/k this past month. without a doubt it is the most-financially rewarding I've had. I actually started 10-months ago and straight away started making a cool minimum $76, per hour. I use the details on this web-site,❥❥❥ w­w­w.J­a­m­1­0.c­o­m

Love it, the webbing background motif, the spiders, the web line intertwining the characters..........and that graphic approach to her furred collar, gloves and hair is speaking to me!!!
