AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #639 p.25. 2010.
Ink on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

Waaaay back in One Moment in Time, I utilized a ton of Sketchup models that Joe Quesada gave me. He had used the models himself and, since the story had the same setting, it only made sense to use them as well. They especially came in handy for the hospital scenes, which always take me a long time.

  1. I started using sketchup after reading about Kristian Donaldson using it to draw Hong Kong in The Massive. I think a Mass Effect comic artist modeled some ships as well using it. Great resource, super hard to learn :-)
    Thanks for your posts!

    1. Yeah, it's great if the model already exists, but if you have to build it from scratch, it doesn't always save time.
