Jealousy is not an attractive trait, but I have no reservations in saying that I can be a jealous person. Mainly, I’m super jealous of anyone with enough artistic talent (and cojones) to place their work on the inter-webs. Since my background in art didn’t really progress beyond my college days, I find myself pouring through the website DeviantArt, envious of all the artists talented enough to display their work for all the world to see. Well, in a new segment I’m calling Webs Weekly, I plan on bringing you Crawlspacers some of the best and brightest Spider-Man fan art I can find. DeviantArt is filled with some truly talented artists, both professional and amateur, and it has some wonderful pieces to showcase. So without further ado, I bring you the first installment. Enjoy, and join me in letting these gifted individuals know that their hard work is appreciated.
In addition to this sharp looking Spidey piece, Dennis also has some nice samples featuring characters from both Star Trek and Star Wars. He shows a good deal of love for the Lord of the Rings series as well as Harry Potter. He also has other comic book heroes such as Wonder Woman, Wolverine and the Fantastic Four. And anybody with an Indiana Jones quote in their profile is alright in my book.
A freelance illustrator and comic book artist, Sean has a nice collection of Star Wars pieces on his Deviant page along with some other fan favorites such as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Voltron. He also has some nice pencil drawings, as well as some interesting mash-ups, including an Elmer Fudd in an Orange Lantern get-up, and Thor battling Bizzaro Superman.
There you have it. The first installment of Webs Weekly. Let me know your thoughts and what sort of Spidey pictures you’d like to see in upcoming installments. Villains? Team-ups? Romantic interests, etc. There’s a plethora of Spidey fan art out there so there should be plenty of time to showcase more, but I figured keeping it simple with two per entry should be enough for now.
