Here, you can see that Carter and I were attempting to recreate the cover to the MARVEL MONSTERS: DEVIL DINOSAUR special that Marvel Comics put out a few years ago. I think we did pretty good, especially that Hulk.
Here’s the original.
It’s plain to see that this is a drawing of Spider-Man. If the red and blue doesn’t give it away, the webs coming from his hands should. Awesome!
He’s made such an improvement in coloring and drawing in just a few weeks. Suddenly he’s attempting to draw faces and characters and coloring almost completely inside the lines. We try to color or draw at least a few times a week.
Something about that drawing just makes me absolutely happy.
Carter’s been drawing a lot lately. He’ll wake up in the morning and go to his table in the bonus room and draw. Jill set him up a table with crayons, markers, scissors, and glue in the back of the bonus room and I dug out a few old art pads for him to use.
He’ll draw something, ask for comments, draw some more. When he’s done, he usually cuts it out of the pad and presents it to Jill or myself for approval.
The picture above was drawn this past weekend at Grandma’s house. He had several pages of pictures he’d drawn and this one just amazed me. I asked him if it was supposed to be Superman and he said “Yep” and kept on going. I think I’ll start archiving some of these for him to see when he gets older.
