Spidey v. Wolverine

This pair was heavy on research. Our client was expecting certain costume with certain features. As a self-described comic book nerd, perfection was key for him.

May have had the best time research these vs any other pair. Got to spend a few hours in my apartment sitting around reading comic books. Little backstory: my first drawing "mentor" was Sonic the Hedgehog comics. I'd spend hours recreating my favorite panels from the comics, in the process internalizing all the technique and styles of my favorite artists.

After researching I gained two things.
1. Accurate sketches of both the characters.
2. A knowledge that Wolverine can kill exactly 36 ninjas in one issue.
