Photobooth Fridays, No 17
Peter Parker editon!
I often like to cast real people into the roles of characters I draw in comics. It's a way for me to make sure that the characters I draw each have a distinctive look, so that I don't just keep drawing the same template. Sometimes I'll look at a couple different celebrities which I'll amalgam into a single character. Other times I'll cast actual people that I know. In this case, I cast my good pal Michael as none other than web-slinging superhero/freelance photographer, Peter Parker!
He was unaware that Peter would be depicted dressed as a goth in this issue.
This still remains the one and only time I've gotten to draw Peter, but should I again, Mike will be my go to guy. I think he makes a great Spidey.
Here's a look at the process on the pages that Mike showed up on--
Have a good weekend, dudes.
