This is my three year old cousin Christian, a Spiderman fanatic.

It was Christmas Eve at my Grandparent's house, and getting late. He was so excited to put on his Spiderman pajamas and Spiderman slippers.

On the Italian side of my family it is a tradition to exchange gifts on Christmas Eve at midnight. Christian was over the moon when he opened up one of the gifts we had bought him.

A Spiderman Mask, and Spiderman Gloves (that make cool sound effects when you move your hand).

Lets just say that he never stopped jumping around and spraying his pretend web all night!

(P.S. I think we all enjoyed the gloves!)

**Post Pro**

1st Photo - autolevels, NeatImage, and cloned out some chocolate in the corner of his lips!

2nd Photo - autolevels, used the magnetic lasso (then did fine tuning later) to select his body, and pasted it as a new layer onto his shoulder. To create the web, all I did was make lines using the brush tool at 1 pixel, then used the ZigZag filter with a low number to make the horizontal lines more web-like. I did a few other things, but can't really remember. Oh ya...I did add a drop shadow to the web.

Pamela, this is great. A wonderful picture of you little cousin, his face is beautiful. The composition, colour and sharpness are great.
Thanks for sharing,

Very cute, and she has beautiful eyes. I'm sure she had a lot of fun.

Excellent PP work Pamela, especially on creation of the web... though, if I recall right, Spiderman's webs are sprayed from a gland in his wrist. But that's just nitpicking... TFS.


I think that we all have a Spiderman in our families. My kid is also a "Spider" fan. I've seen a hundred times Spiderman 1 on DVD with him and almost the same of second one (since Cristmas):O

They are all a perfect Peter Parker !
