Spider-Man - Conventionless Convention Sketch

Charlie asked for a Steve Ditko version of Spider-Man. While I cannot draw like Ditko, there were a few things I noticed when doing the research for this piece. The shape of the eyes, the spider on his chest and the webbing under the arms, were distictive. So using the only Spider-Man reference I forgot I owned and is filled with Steve Ditko Spidey art, the Marvel Special Edition "The Spectacular Spider-Man" treasury sized book from 1975, I got started. Above is the result. Thanks Charlie!
