Spiderman No Way Home Artwork: Sinister Six Fanart

With the trailer taking the world by storm and hitting 3 million views in under16 minutes since it was released, Spiderman: No Way Home appears to be another sensational hit before it even hits the cinemas.

This comes as no surprise to many marvel fans, especially with the trailer dropping signs of the Sinister Six. As such, for this article, we will be focusing on Spiderman: No Way Home Artwork on the potential Sinister Six villains.

Kickstarting the Spiderman:No Way Home Artwork, we have Doctor Octopus or Doc Ock for short by Artist Celine Chia.

Doctor Octopus Fanart

Doc Ock was the first antagonist/protagonist to be introduced in the trailer. For this Doc Ock artwork, we will be doing more of a realism piece using colour pencils.

Materials Needed:

  • Colour Pencils (we used Prisma)
  • Eraser
  • Pencil
  • Kraft Paper

For this image, we wanted to portray a more realistic feel, hence our focal point is more close up, and showcases his upper body and the tips of his metallic arms.

Firstly, we start off with a rough sketch of his upper body and metallic arms. The lines need not be very bold, as we will be colouring over them later on.
Once we have all the proportions in place, we can proceed with the colouring.

Colours Used for Doctor Octopus' Hair - (From Left) Eggshell Yellow, Sunburst Yellow, Sienna Brown, Burn Ombre Foncé, Black
Colours Used for Doctor Octopus’ Hair – (From Left) Eggshell Yellow, Sunburst Yellow, Sienna Brown, Burn Ombre Foncé, Black

We first apply Eggshell yellow and Sunburst yellow in patches along the surface (outer end as highlights) of his hair. Next, we follow up with Sienna brown to make his hair more realistic via stroking method. To make his hair look more natural, make short and curved strokes (similar to drawing eyelashes) in different directions.

Darken the hair with burn ombre foncé to achieve the colour gradation. Lastly, follow up with black to show the distinct shades between the layers. (depth and shadows for the roots of the hair)

Colours Used for Doctor Octopus' Face - (From Left) Eggshell Yellow, Light Peach, Salmon Pink, Warm Grey, Black
Colours Used for Doctor Octopus’ Face – (From Left) Eggshell Yellow, Light Peach, Salmon Pink, Warm Grey, Black

For his face, we start off with Eggshell yellow colour pencils as the base layer. (skin tone) Following that, we use warm grey to contour his cheekbone and ears. Blend the warm grey with light peach. The same colour (warm grey) is also used to give the definitions of his nostrils and eyes.

To add further definition to his facial features, we use eggshell yellow/white to outline the highlights (i.e nose bridge, cheeks). In order to achieve the contours portrayed in his cheekbones, we blend warm grey, salmon pink and light peach and black to achieve the colour gradation.

Apply the same technique along his eye sockets and nose area to highlight the sharp distinction between the features.

Colours Used for Doctor Ocropus' Coat - (From Left) Goldenrod, French grey, Artichoke, Green Ocre, Black
Colours Used for Doctor Ocropus’ Coat – (From Left) Goldenrod, French grey, Artichoke, Green Ocre, Black

For the coat (outfit), we first shade the outline and creases/highlights with white colour pencils.

Next, we follow up with blending of artichoke at the collar. To achieve the colour gradation seen in the time lapse, we follow up with blending with french grey and black as the inner folds/shadows.

Add a tinge of goldenrod alongside with the white as the highlights.

Colours Used for Doctor Octopus' Tentacles - (From Left) Cloud blue, Powder Blue, Cool Grey, Artichoke, Sandbar Brown, White, Silver, Metallic Gold, Yellow Chartreuse, Yellowed Orange, Orange, Crimson Red, Permanent Red, Black
Colours Used for Doctor Octopus’ Tentacles – (From Left) Cloud blue, Powder Blue, Cool Grey, Artichoke, Sandbar Brown, White, Silver, Metallic Gold, Yellow Chartreuse, Yellowed Orange, Orange, Crimson Red, Permanent Red, Black

Do take note that one of his metallic tentacles is wrapped around his waist. (cuts through part of the cloak) As such, we have to take extra precaution to distinguish the metallic tentacle from the rest of his coat.

We use white for the base layer of the metallic arm, and black for the intersecting layers. (in between the tentacle arm) We use white and yellow chartreuse for the edges and blend it with silver/artichoke/sandbar brown/ metallic gold towards the middle.
Colour the segment between each ‘vertebrae’ with black.

For the other metallic tentacles, we use white to mark out the highlights. The highlights for the tentacles are generally at the sides/ends, while the shadows are mainly at the middle, and repeat the blending (same as the step above).

Last but not least for the pincers, we use cloud blue/ powder blue for the highlights. As for the ‘laser lights’, we use white for the middle of the circle, and blend it with crimson/permanent red at the diameter of the circle.

Here is the end result:
