|Knight Models Spider-Man [Completed]|
|Highlights and shadows on Spidey were painted with an imaginary light source coming from the left (or his right)|
Working on the Knight Models version of Spider-Man was essentially a back to basics in terms of the colour scheme I needed to work on. All three primary colours - blue, red and yellow - were accounted for and it gave me the chance to practice my blending and layering skills on all three hues.

Because of how I had positioned Spidey on top of the yellow cab, the miniature's centre of gravity was such that it would have easily toppled over. To overcome this problem, I glued a triangular piece of sprue onto the back of the taxi as a means of added support. To glue the sprue as well as Spidey on the cab, I used a super glue-pure baking soda combo to ensure sufficient bond strength.
|Gluing a triangular sprue to the taxi helped stabilise the whole structure|
Each time I look at the miniature, I appreciate more and more how dynamic the miniature looks. This Knight Models piece managed to capture the essence of Spidey's agile movement. It was also fitting Spidey should leapfrog over the iconic yellow cab as he is synonymous with New York City.

Completing Spider-Man means I can now move on to the next member of The Avengers which will be The Hulk. He should be another fun piece to work on in my Marvel Universe project as I will get to do a lot of skin tone work albeit of a greener shade. Now if only my one pack ab would turn into an even six when I am angry. Wouldn't that be a sight for sore eyes.
