Superior Spider Man By Ryanstegman by johnercek Superior Spider Man By Ryanstegman by johnercek
these inks are up over on the BA artist groupsite :iconbattle-artist:
I thought i'd try to play around with it. Normally I LOVE colorholding spiderman's webbing, but I decided to hold back this time because the setting is so dark.

nice call to go from, what looks to me, converting your flats to grey scale and painting in the tones for highlighting, looking pretty good :D

good eye- that wasn't exactly what i did, but yes. =)
Technically i put a desaturation adjustment layer on top of the flats and painted it back on the opacity map, basically revealing some of the flat color, and then painting the highlights on a layer on top of that. It's a little convuluted, but I was being indecisive and that approach gave me versatility.

What worries me is the muddiness of the greys though.

ok, no I get exactly what you did :D

If I may be so bold, what I prefer to do (as I've just moved to the greyscaling route), I create a new colour fill layer above the flats, set to 88888 and then change that layer to 'colour'

Give it a try, it gives me some serious crispiness :D
