I guess he’ll be hearing from the law firm of Excelsior, Excelsior, and Doom VERY soon.
Spidey’s breaking into a padded porn pit?
I fear the 3D sequel.
Spiderman: Turn On the Double-D Dark 3D
Oh, what a tangled web we weave…
…when we practice to Out-of-Frame and Broken Glass, achieve.
You’re new here, aren’t you? WELCOME!
John has taken the X-Men and dialed it up a few notches to XXX-Men.

That leg looks wonky as fuck. At the angle Spidey’s at, facing out to our right, the leg shouldn’t be sticking out like that . . . unless he decided to do a showgirl routine in midair, in which case, somebody needs to have a word with Julie Taymor.
I tried. Really I did, and the only legitimate way his legs would look like that would be if he was rapelling down the side of the building and instead of bracing his foot on a more solid surface, it went through the window.
Which still doesn’t explain where his hands are. Unless he sees a beach volleyball court inside that room.
He looks wonky because he’s a photoshoop of a screenshot/poster (I don’t remember which). But here, the proof is in the pudding:
Oh, so not only is he stealing the character and “copyrighting” it, he’s stealing the actual work of a real artist who is licensed to create a Spiderman posted and “copyrighting” that, too. I see…
Poster, not posted.
Spider Man, Spider Man

Look out! Here comes Spider Man….
I keep coming back to the broken glass. Why, oh god, WHY does it remind me of the “action shots” of an asterisk orgy?
Or a cat’s asshole.
Asterisk and Obelisk are different than I remember.
This panes me.
My sense of decency has been shattered.
There, there. Have a glass of shardonnay.
Broken glass doesn’t look like a pinwheel.
You guys almost made me spit out my Dr. Pepper all over the screen.
Almost? We need to try harder.
When I read and saw your response HK, the single word is my head was: SWEET!
My Pittsburgh roots are showing.
What are these Out-of-Frame and Broken Glass “techniques” of which John speaks? Are they just Photoshop options?
Copyright infringement! EXCELSIOR
I keep thinking he’s about to get his leg sliced open. D:
Any self-respecting superhero would enter a plate glass window with both feet.
That’s because they know if they slice open a leg like spidey looks like he’s about to do, you are more likely to rapidly bleed out than slashing your wrist. safety first!
So if I didn’t know any better, I’d think he was standing there and kicked it in, but he’s outside the building. So is he hanging? Or…what? And why did the glass break in that perfect shape?
OK, I’ve never “gotten” Spiderman, anyway, so it probably doesn’t matter.
I’d like to mention that I had a carved stamp in my store labelled “hockey championship trophy” that was similar to the shape of the Stanley Cup, but different enough so as to not infringe on copyrights, and it still got removed. <_<
Maybe it’s because of the copyright-protecting low resolution, but I’m not seeing the 3D here.
Lee needs to break some glass at etsy HQ
Stan can’t shatter a window like Spidey but he sure can shatter dream.
I appreciate Stan Lee’s especially long torso.
The reason his leg looks awkward through the glass is because it’s taken directly from promotional materials for the movie.
The seller didn’t even draw spidy himself, just badly photoshopped some publicity stills.
No one has noticed that Spidey now has a prehensile tail, apparently? Look between his legs (oh, c’mon, you’re there anyway)–what’s that between his right leg and his hands? WHAT IS IT? FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, TELL ME OR IT WILL HAUNT MY NIGHTMARES.
Or, more likely, I’ll forget about it five minutes after I shut off the computer.
You’re right. It looks like it ought to be a reflection of the clasped hands, but reflected on what??
It’s his foot.
His leg is bent.
You’re right. THANK YOU. Now I can sleep tonight.
SORRY! Accidentally thumbed you down.
Strangely enough, this seems to be his only copy-right infringement work of art. You should check out the pregnant woman about to be gored by a unicorn while ” a female Cardinal and squirrel look about for danger” :http://www.etsy.com/listing/102954238/circle-of-life-a-mother-and-unicorn-art
I doubt Spidey is his only copyright infringement. Unless you think he drew/painted that woman and that unicorn. I don’t think he did.
He didn’t. He specifically says in the description that he layered nine images together to create it.
I’m pretty sure the head and arms don’t belong to the same photo as the belly and legs…. they aren’t the same quality.
Copyright isn’t just protection for TV shows, comic books and cartoon mice. If you take a photo, you own the copyright on that photo–even if you put it online, even if you never go out and officially register that copyright.
Registration just makes it easier to defend your copyright should some schmuck lift your photo from Google Images and insert it into a collage to sell on Etsy.
Well, he deleted my comment on his FB and took down Spidey. \
He still has this globally infringing work though:
Oh wait, that’s not his. It’s some other Etsy infringer.
Love the Stan Lee picture! I’d buy that on a coffee mug. Stan would probably give you permission to sell it for a percentage of the profits. He’s a cool dude.
He needs a real-life reference for his Breaking Glass technique. On second thought, he needs to study references for the human form, too. And a basic understanding of physics. No, actually: just stop, man. Just stop.
