I love Rhino's ginormous chest and soldiers. It's just so exaggerated and his head is so small; great design!

Wow! Mary looks different! Hot!

Tombstone looks like the hyper intelligent version of Solomon Grundy. 8-)

I love tombstones facial features

I saw the cartoon, and I must say, I love Tombstone. As far as criminal over-lords go, he's pretty decent.
DanielHCarlsen Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2008
I think my favorite in this picture would have to be the Rhino, I just love it when he runs straight through the wall in the top floor at the DB.

This episode was so awesome!
mynamethatislong Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2008
This isn't a critique, so sorry to bug you, but you're the only person I know to ask.
Why was Tombstone the "Big Man" instead of Kingpin? I was so sure in the first couple of episodes that he was gonna be the one. Was there some kinda legal problems since he was in the Daredevil movie, or were you guys just going for a more obscure classic villian of Spidey's?
I like Tombstone well enough, I guess Kingpin just seems a bit more menacing to me.
Gryphinwyrm7 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2008
I can field that one; I just attended the Gargoyles convention in Chicago, and one of the Panels was on the Spectacular Spider-man.

They're only allowed to use characters that are "part of the Spider-man corner of the Marvel Universe" as you'd already guessed: Kingpin belongs to the Daredevil corner...for the extremely dumb reason that he was in the DD movie.

Greg Weisman expressed an interest in using Kingpin, but wasn't allowed to. He is pleased, however, that he got such a cool character out of Tombstone. He still hopes to use Kingpin someday, and perhaps play the two characters against one another/off of one another.
mynamethatislong Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2008
Thanks for the response! I figured it was a legal issue; studios/companies seem so protective of their copyrights, even knowing that Spider-Man and Daredevil are part of the same universe and technically owned by the same people. :roll:
shsn Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2008
this might sound bit stupid but is this drawn with maybe water color.. you know traditional works... or some computer program like photoshop?
archangel73 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2008   Digital Artist
dude did you design the characters for spectaculer spiderman?
JazylH Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008  Professional Filmographer
The Best Rhino design I've seen transcend to a Spidey cartoon. I really loved how Awesome he turned out in the show. :)
jamesramos Featured By Owner May 22, 2008
man you just keep getting better and better!
Gryphman Featured By Owner May 21, 2008
Out of this set, I like what you did with Rhino the most. You took his generally very plain looking suit and made it look really cool.

Tombstone just looks super creepy. It's those eyes. Like he's staring right through you.

Also a big fan of your Norman Osborne. The expression just completely captures his character.

What can I say about MJ? She's MJ. You can't really go wrong with her. She's just one of those characters that everyone seems to get right. lol
KratosAurion Featured By Owner May 13, 2008
MJ is lookin' real nice here. You gotta post your concept art for Liz, I love her design too.
SimpleSimonDesign Featured By Owner May 7, 2008
Man you are the $#!? I love these. THey make me incredibly jealous of your style and talent. The tombtone alon would have done it but that Rhino is kickin!
jrcarter Featured By Owner May 6, 2008
I'm guessing the exposed midriff on MJ caused problems with BS&;P.
THELORDISGREAT Featured By Owner May 1, 2008
Great job on these man, you got talent dude.

I was always good and copying things free hand, just was never very good at creating things from scratch.
NeterG Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2008
Love your MJ!
The-3DArtist Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2008  Professional General Artist
Hey! Can I do a version of your Rhino in 3d? (I kinda already started, lol)
jhames34 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
nice...I always liked Tombstone, before they gave him ';powers,' he was quite an intimidating character for the non-superheroes like Joe Robertson

silverbolt2012 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2008
Can't wait to see what the Green Goblin will look like, same with Black cat and Venom.
ECHANONE Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2008   Traditional Artist
me and my kid love watching that cartoon. very nice style. thank you
Shineman Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2008
Rhino's character rendition looks really bad-ass ^_^ Tombstone is definitely a major baddie and Norman definitely seems a lot colder than usual (No need for this guy to wear a jacket in the winter time XD)
BigBDawg001 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Gotta admit, it's cool how you have designed Rhino here. :) Same with Tombstone. Looks even COOLER in Spectacular Spider-Man itself, man! Keep. It. Up!

CabinetMinister Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Excellent, yo.
That Rhino is the business.
weshoyot Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
love you take on the rhino! got to see some episodes finally the other cool to see your designs come to life man!
gammarallyson Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2008
These designs make me glad to know that there is SOMETHING to watch on a Saturday Morning!

Keep up the Great Work, Cheeks! [^^]

P.S: MJ's lookin' +10!
King1cheetah Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2008
very coooooool
DF16 Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2008
Say, I heard somewhere (probably from one of your interviews on the net) that the initial design for MJ was too "showy" for a show aimed at kids, and you had to revise. Is the above drawing the risque version?

Also, this is the best Spider-Man show ever, and I'm loving each and every one of your designs. Kudos!
Wataru2001 Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Loved seeing MJ make her appearance... but honestly, I was kind of hoping the whole Peter-Gwen plot would go quite a bit longer before she came into the picture. AWESOME shot of her (and everyone, of course), here, though.

Cheeks, you still heavily involved in the animation project? GREAT WORK!!!!
nirman Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2008   Digital Artist
Hi ! Do you sketch directly on the tablet? If yes then is it as aswesome as sketching on paper with a pen?? :)
jarod1872 Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2008
I gotta say, I love your MJ. Really spot on to the character while still being a really fresh looking design. Everytime I see it I like it a little more. Love the eyes on Tombstone and Rhino, also.

:XD: Awesome! I think the Rhino is my favorite.... He looks very disgruntled..
HauntingYourKids Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2008
Norman has short legs. Just an observation, unless he wears really long jackets like gangsters do. Anyway, love the character designs, love the show, keep up the good work.
ShadowHeat Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2008
I loved how Tombstone beat the crap out of spiderman in like 2 seconds, he is like a gangsta now.
Gaibhre Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2008  Professional General Artist
Tombstone looks creepy. Like a cross between Lance Henrickson and Peter Lorre.
With a smidgen of Albino. Always loved Tombstone.
