Spider-Man In Color

I shopped this one around the web a bit, because I wanted to get the color just right. I'm pretty happy with the result, so here it is. My goal was to create an iconic piece of Spider-Man art, and I may not quite be at that level yet, but I think it's an honest attempt.

The original art for this piece is larger than standard original comic art size. I'll be listing it on my ebay store later this week. I'll probably list it at $250, which is more than I think a collector would be willing to pay for an unknown artist's work, but the inks are hyper-detailed and I have enough sentimental attachment to sit on it until I have more of a reputation (at which time maybe I'll sell it for quite a bit more). If there's any immediate interest, let me know.

Also, since I don't own the characters and Marvel doesn't own the artwork, I can't exactly sell posters of the image, but if anyone does want me to print out a display size giclee print for them, let me know and I'm sure we can work something out.

Fantastic job, Todd. Love the colors on that. The logo at the top gives it that extra touch of awesome. Keep up the good work.

Thanks Reggie! I really appreciate your support. I don't know if you saw on the thread that you first commented about my work, but I offered a free one character sketch to both you and bdog, for being the first to sign up to my art blog. It's truly an honor for me when someone take an interest in my work and I just want to say thanks.

Please let me know what character you'd like me to draw for you and let me know how to get it to you. You. Email it to me.

You did the coloring yourself?
That's great, I still find weakness in coloring dimensions to the sketches.

I'm sorry spideyfan, I'm not quite following what you say the weakness is. I'm very much interested in feedback for improving myself so I'd love it if you would follow up on it!
