Spiderman Short WIP

I've been working on this short featuring spiderman. Reason I'm working on this animation is to work on my character animation skills. I've never modeled and/or animated a character who resembles a muscly/ superhero. I modeled rigged, textured and animated him. These are some WIP stills of him and a quick composite of the background. Right now the animation is almost done I just need to model the city.

INSPIRATION: Michael Nyman & David McAlmont - Secrects

Iv'e always had a fascination in abstract art and VDJ work. I believe VDJ is the right term, it means video disk jockey. THey take an already made video and cut it in the right spots to make a music video. I'm not saying this specific video was made that way, I'm just saying it reminds me of that kind of art because of the art. The music is very acoustic and chill. Very well done on their part!
