Today's daily sketch is a little marker comp I did of Spider-man leap frogging. I had the pencil sketch for a very long time - probably over year in my sketchbook. Looking to test out my Copic markers, i decided to color the sketch and add highlights with a Gummyroll white pen.

I've always thought Spider-man had the best superhero costume design which was always tweaked and improved over the decades. He is probably the most fun and challenging hero when it comes to drawing him for Marvel comics. There is so much detail that must flow well with the costume -- or it doesn't look right.

No matter what your opinion is on the character, you have to give credit to Steve Ditko for such a unique costume design . . . so ahead of it's time.
