Hello,

So I took a DCU Blue Beetle, looked at the bulging eyes and immediately thought 1970's Spiderman TV show. I almost went that route, but I hadn't seen one Alex Ross style Spidey and thought--'make him and they will come.'

I sculpted over the exposed face on Beetle and added the sharp flair to the bug eyes. I sculpted the spider on his chest--no easy feat, let me tell you! That took the longest, as I had to let the spider body dry before adding the legs. I sculpted the wrist guards and the back of the hands with the armor plate. Then I primed him all black. Painted a silver on the eyes with some clear color dripped on--up close it gives the impression of mirrored eyes reflecting something off them.

Next I painted the red and each line of the web in his suit (never, EVER wanting to do that again). I left the flat black, and drybrushed a dark blue over it, to highlight some of his muscles. The photos do okay at capturing it, but it looks better up close.

Enjoy/critique/thanks for looking!

- Fitz

I like this one a lot. Really Clean and cool looking. Please don't forget to make that 1970 spiderman! Great idea, where the eyes kind of bug out.
Drawing those webs looks fun but is not, it takes effort like a real spider spinning a web!
