Synopsis: Like most teenagers, Peter Parker is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy, and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr Curt Connors, his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
The project began with my attraction to the Spider-Man image (which I used in the poster above), as I couldn't help but notice the resemblance of such pose with the one seen in the cover of The Amazing Spider-Man #50, the storyline "Spider-Man, No More!" (inset) - this was not my first attempt as a while back, I've tried to create the same homage poster only to fail miserably due to my lack of skills, but lately I decided to redo it, and this is the result, which I think is pretty satisfying. The weakness of the poster I think is the positioning of Peter Parker and especially his shadow, which looks pretty bland on such a clean surface. But I think overall it looks pretty good, given the fact that the process was pretty tricky - especially the orange light streaks, which to my surprise look good in the final product.
