Spidey and his Amazing Friend... Stuart Immonen



Here's a Spider-Man cover I did awhile back.  I'm not actually sure what it's getting used for though.  I just wanted to do a iconic style shot of him and I love seeing him hang up side down. 

The problem with drawing Spidey is the amount of people to can destroy me at doing it.  Let's take Stuart Immonen (current artist on Ultimate Spider-Man) for example.  Here is a guy who makes me cry every time I look at his work.  After seeing his take on the character I vow to never attempt it.  Stuart's version of Peter Parker is hands down the most spot on depiction of the character that I see in my mind when thinking of him.  He looks young.  Not just in clothing and hairstyle which seems to be most peoples way of saying "Look, here's a teenager.  Don't mind the 30 year old build forcing the thigh muscles to want to explode from the spandex.  Just keep you eye on the iPod and remember that despite the fact that he looks like he could be your dad, he's only in highschool".  Stuarts Peter has the athletic build you expect from Spidey but in the adolescent body that is should be.  He feels like a young, exuberant superhero that he should be. 

Ok, I love Stuart Immonen's art and maybe I'm starting to push the line of a being a stalker who cares.  To me, he's one of the best out there... period!

So, yeah, I drew Spidey too, big whoop!

Oohh, i likey yo SPidey! First of all, i would slap the Shit out of Stuart..thats first. Second, i draw Spider Man with Camel toe, NOW WHAT!?! Third and most importantly, Spider Man is BLACK and we all know this, its proven in his most famous movie called Steel, starring Shaq, HOLLA!

Beautiful cover image! I like how he is in the shadows but still looks like the fun loving spidey we love.

I've got the Venom comics you illustrated and it's great seeing how youre style has evolved from the way you drew back then. Well done.

rashad said...

dude totally agree. immonen is an all around great. his strorytelling, whether it's action or just conversation is always well paced. dude's my favorite artist right now.

Power to ya; I, as well, stand in awe of the Immonen shadow.

You're no slouch yourself; great stuff.

David Cousens said...

This is a superb rendtion of Spidey Skottie! I love the way you've rendered his webs-they're so unique and stylised!

Uthor said...

I like how you drew the webs. Very cool.

I like Immonen's Spider-Man, but I generally can't stand how he draws Peter. He looks too much like a girl in too many panels.

SWAiN said...

Yours is aiiight, but Stuart's rocks (...jokes)!

Darrin said...

Immonen's spider man may be great but your take on him in Twist, especially the dichotomy between him and venom was simply inspired.

I would absolutely love to see you do another run with either of the two characters.

Skottie, sweet Spidey pic. Your stuff is unbelievable. Keep up the good work.

Jeremy de la Garza said...

I think Stuart's Spidey is great and all, but yours is right up there for me. It's a bit more playful, which I think serves the character perfectly. Awesome cover by the way, your line quality rocks!

Great Spidey!! This is now one of my favorite Spider-man illo's ever...seriously good. It has a great atmosphere and mood...plus I really dig the webs too!

Spidey is always cooler when he's upside down. Cool webbing. I'm loving the new style to your work (comparing to a couple of years back). has a sketchy-gritty feel.

COMIKXGUY said...

it reminds me of that image that mcfarlane drew but it had alot more webs

William Dean Blankenship Jr. said...

I think you give yourself too little credit. The spidey in my head looks more like yours or Cheeks.

3!LL

great design!

Surt-sama said...

FANTASTIC!

You're my favourite artist and I love what you do! You're an example for me.

Continue your fantastic job as long as possible for us (and for you!).

P.S. : Sorry for my spelling but I'm french ;)

skottie - love your work, but your spidey looks terrible. just bein' honest.

Doug said...

I'd have to disagree...

This is simply brilliant!

David said...

With you on Immonen. He can do wrong. He's a seriously brilliant artist.

But don't talk yourself down either. This is a great Spidey, and I'd pick up anything you had your hands on, even if it were a book of drawings of naked old guys.

swollenpickles said...

I really love your style. It's awesome. I really dug your Cable & Deadpool covers too!

jiro said...
