Digital Paints - Spider-Man by CarlShinyama
Digital Paints - Spider-Man
Took an old Spider-Man illustration that I did and I threw some digital paints on it. Was a good learning experience, but I can see where I need to improve.

EDIT: Touched up the painting just a smidge.
Digital Painting Homework: Spider-Girl by CarlShinyama
Digital Painting Homework: Spider-Girl
This one was a tough one. Came into it confident, but ended up doing a lot more guesswork than I anticipated, so my confidence went right back out the window. I think the overall art suffered because of it. Still, I learned a lot, and that was the goal. Best thing that I learned? I still have plenty of room to grow.

Hey guys!

I haven't posted a journal in a loonnnnng time! It's been so long that I remember the last time I did that. I'm still hard at work on Megapower - the script is finished and now I'm drawing the pages as we speak - so I'm still pursuing my dream of being a comic book artist.

But I have some other news that I'm excited about: I'm now a contributor for!

Tomorrow (8/19), my first article goes live! I'll post here when I get the chance. Let me know what you guys think!
