I don't do this often, but since things have been slow going lately, I decided to post some prelim work. (Apologies for the messy cleanups, my eyes have been burning all day!)
Anybody that knows me is aware that I have a NOTORIOUSLY poor memory, so when I leave a piece partway through the penciling stage, I often need to make notes to indicate intended elements. This piece is a good example of that -- there are notes calling out virtually every element that I'll need to add later to the piece.
For those that can't quite make the pencils and/or notes out, the piece as it currently stands will have Spider-Girl (without the mask, of course) sitting on some rocks under a cherry blossom tree by a lake in Central Park. There will be blossom petals blowing in the near background, with trees across the lake and some indication of the skyline in the far background. I don't know yet how I'm going to approach the lighting, but this one is likely going to get a marker treatment.
Subject-wise? I'm sad to see Spider-Girl go, so I figured a tribute of some sort is in order. I wasn't an early adopter of the title, but I grew to love this series more than any other book on the stands. This really was my favorite series by the time it was announced that it was going away for good.
