Spider-Rama

Remember the Portrait Party contest I won? I finally drew the portrait of Rama Hughes. He´s a huge fan of Spiderman, so I tried to make a Superhero out of him. I couldn´t help but smile when the portrait was done. Somehow he looks more cute than heroic.

Usually I do all the portraits in black and white. But this one really screamed for color, so at least I added some shadows. I would love to add some color, but I have no clue how. And I would hate to spoil the pic. Any suggestions?

BTW: You can check out all the portraits I drew for The Portrait Party here!

How about a block of bright color in the background just to set it off the way designers do with renders?
Great portrait, by the way, Kerstin!

@casey: i´m afraid to change anything and destroy the portrait. maybe i should try to print it and do the coloring on the copy and not on the original.

@rama: it really relieves me that you like it. :)

wonderful portrait! I'm with you on the timidity of changing the original. I always scan things in and print them on good paper and work on that first.

I don´t like it, I LOOOOVE IT! :D

(Thanks Mim, for the idea with copying the portrait. I think I will try that when I have time)
