After a long absence, Jerry Livengood returns for his 7th commission here at the Inkwell commission gallery and his second Spider-wing-themed piece, combining both Spider-man and Nightwing. For this one, my first time inking Sean Murphy, I was asked to do it on blueline and to enlarge the file from 8.5X11 to 11X17. This simply meant stretching out the background elements a bit. I used brush, markers, Pitt markers, drybrush for the shadow over stone texture, and to enhance the texture I scraped an, x-acto razor blade over that to show cracks. I also used some china marker crayon to shade in the adjacent black areas between the figures and their shadows so they wouldn’t blend and it would match with the dry brush look. I finished this commission on 12/25/11.
