Amazing Spider-Man: Extra! #2, Page 5. 2009.
Ink and digital color on Marvel board, 11 x 17.25".

When pressed for time, I tend to experiment more in the reference stage, trying out various versions of a particular pose. It's often easier to choose from a set of options than to come up with the right pose from scratch. Drinking doesn't help, either.




  1. I thought Wolverine couldn't get drunk? Must be that Canadian whisky...

  2. Always love seeing the process from pencil to full color. It's great poses and expressions like these that are so hard to come up with without reference.

  3. Great page! Wolverine looks a bit like you. And I really like spideys pose in the last panel!

  4. ...i'm really diggin' all your insight you bring to this blog...i am learning a lot from it...keep it up.

  5. Christina, he can't (at least not for long). He drinks about half the bottle here and goes through all the stages of being drunk in the course of the page. But yes, the Canadian whisky did help.

    Thanks, guys!
