Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 179 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

Spiderman ink by Devgear FLATS


So, I've been trying to improve my workflow by selecting the flat background area of an image and reversing the selection to select the figure (instead of using the lasso tools to work all the way around and create a single selection) This seemed to work OK, but with images like this brilliant one from devgear where the outline isn't solid, the method isn't as straightforward. Oh well, I live and learn.

I really like Devgear's work, so check out the gallery using the link above.

Damn dude! this is awesome! your lines are so clean and they flow so well!

LStowe responds:

Thanks, but I can't take credit for the lineart. Devgear did the lineart as I'm no good at that yet. I've only added flat colour, but thanks anyway.

eto eta ufffff men (this is awesome!!)

LStowe responds:


the colors you used make the image really pop! both you and devgear did an amazing job on this!

LStowe responds:

Thanks. The flat colour file is available as a pad file using the link in the QR code so I'm hoping that people will be able to use it to practice their own digital colouring

Thanks again

Spectacular piece! It brings a nostalgic classic feel.

Dude, this looks sharp as heck. I've been loving this style I've been seeing around of having really detailed line work, but limited pallet solid color shading.

It genuinely looks amazing, like I'd like to see this as a cover for an issue.

LStowe responds:

Thanks. I have to give props to Devgear who did the lineart though. I thought this was an excellent challenge to flat as it was only moderately complicated.

Glad you enjoyed it.
