HA HA HA HA! THE NOT SO FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN. Clean it up, Spidey! Love it, Dave.

Well, it’s up to you and Steel in terms of what we do next, but I’m sure Steel would defer to you, Dave. Let me know what you’d like to do and I’ll post it up.

Awesome! Thanks to everyone who came by. I hope the challenge was a little fun. I’ve opened voting and I’ll try to have some critiques up as soon as I can, if everyone is interested.

Steel, thank you for sharing your early gesture lines. I think that’s a great idea. It’s kind of similar to what I do. I’ve posted this quick sketch below (and added the red lines to kind of suggest how I figure out a pose) to kind of show the general process I go through. I did this piece digitally, but I do the same thing with pencil and paper–I just use an old rectangular carpenter pencil or drawing pencil to do quick gestures. I TRULY think this is the biggest thing to keep your figures from feeling stiff, to make them feel dynamic.

If anyone thinks it would be helpful to them, I’ll go ahead and make a quick video of how I do this. It has been the single biggest help for me in terms of speed and improved final art.

Spider-Man in the snow! (One of the my favorite settings for Spider-Man.)

ART CLASH WEEK 1: SPIDER-MAN IN A SNOWY NYC!!!

SPIDER-MAN IN A SNOWY NYC

ART BRIEF
SUBJECT: SPIDER-MAN IN A SNOWY NYC.

CONCEPT: Continuing our annual tradition, illustrate Spider-Man in a snowy NYC (or any city). You can choose any version or costume of Spider-Man you like. Just be certain to make the image wintry. Good luck!

 

 

The Rules:
THE ART CLASH is a weekly art challenge. Each TUESDAY a new Art Clash challenge will be posted. You may work in ANY MEDIA you like, but you must stick to the brief of this week’s Art Clash. And please, no posting old work in the Art Clash. This is about encouraging growth through work, so we expect a new piece every time.

Your final art will need to be uploaded to an image hosting service (here are a few I recommend: Imgur, Google Photos and Flickr) and then may be posted here ANY time until SUNDAY evening at MIDNIGHT (EST). Voting begins immediately afterward and polls close on MONDAY at MIDNIGHT (EST). So don’t miss out!
The artist with the most votes for the week by the close of the polls is declared that week’s winner and chooses the next Art Clash.

***A BRIEF NOTE BEFORE WE BEGIN***
Just a reminder that we’re currently in The Art Clash version 1.1. The primary difference in this iteration is each week’s Art Clash will feature two tiers of competition: sequential and pin-up. Anyone entering can choose to illustrate that week’s challenge in a sequential storytelling form (page templates will be provided here) or as a stand-alone, pin-up-style image. Build and illustrate a story of your own around an Art Clash challenge, or wow your audience with a single powerful image. It’s up to you. We want to foster all levels of creativity here, so this will provide an opportunity for all artists to take their work in whatever direction he or she desires and to whatever degree of finishing.

THE ART CLASH 2.0

Ok. I know with the Holiday craziness, there hasn’t been much time for voting, but no worries. We’ll close this down (I’ll have critiques up ASAP) and get set for the New Year!

The first topic of the Art Clash Year 2 is Spider-man in the Snow. It will be winter in NY and Spidey’s out in it, doing what he does best.

See you in the next Clash!
