Here’s steps for a painting that was pretty defining for me as an artist. It’s a bit older now, but still gives me feels and feels belong on a tumblr. Took three or so days I believe, all from imagination.
I love looking at the process of creating a beautiful piece of art.

Spider-Man: Chapter One #9, page 4 by John Byrne & Al Milgrom. 1999.
John was asked if this series was supposed to replace the original Stan Lee & Steve Ditko stories. John had this to say:
Not when I started. The mandate I was handed by editorial was to create a kind of “what if” scenario that assumed Lee and Ditko had their story lines worked out months in advance, as had become common practice but was not the way things were done in the early Sixties.
However, word of the projected leaked (something else that would not have been likely in the early 60s), and there was a wave of negative response from some very vocal fans. Curiously, when this happened Marvel’s reaction was exactly the opposite of what I had experienced with DC on MAN OF STEEL. Where DC had basically cut me loose at the first whiff of negative fan response (which came before anyone had seen so much as a single page of the Superman project), Marvel dug in its collective heels and suddenly CHAPTER ONE (original working title TWICE TOLD TALES) became a sort of MAN OF WEBS. Howard Mackie and I were even instructed to incorporate elements from CHAPTER ONE into the regular Spider-Man title.
It was all very weird.
