Creeeeeeeeeeeepy! You did a great job on it, though.
TaCO (Apr 19, 2005)
Your really good with bugs.
Makes me want to draw one.
kejoco (Apr 19, 2005)
This makes me cringe...
Therefore you definitely did a good job of it.
F'n spiders...Pure evil i tells ya

Am I the only one that thinks she's kindda cute? . . . of course I think earthworms and dinosaurs are cute. . .
Great job. Very realistic! I especially like the web. ^___^
kejoco (edited May 9, 2005)
She'd be a lot cuter stuck to the bottom of my boot
brainspiller83 (Apr 19, 2005)
oh wow!! nice spider!! looks really good and photographic like. You rawk!
davincipoppalag (Apr 19, 2005)
I'm with ya kejo..she creeped me out drawing her. I hate spiders.
Fin_beast (edited Apr 19, 2005)
I don't think i'd have the patience to draw all those legs. Really nice details davinci. :)
I hate spiders. I quite enjoy reducing spiders on my ceiling to juice with my Walther P99 BB Gun. /;)
emmamommalag (Apr 19, 2005)
You shoot at your ceiling with a BB gun? hehe
Fin_beast (Apr 19, 2005)
Yea, my mum isn't too pleased. There are loads of dents, but I'm not having them crawling into my mouth when i'm asleep! :O
emmamommalag (Apr 19, 2005)
LMHO, Fin!! I don't doubt she is displeased. lol
kejoco (edited Apr 19, 2005)
The idea of spider "juice" is revolting
the idea of them being dead i'm cool with, but "juice"....bleh

SPIDERS: The only reason its acceptable for guys to squeal like a little girl.

This one is kind of shitty. At least the darkling beetles lines were a little smoother, but neither is advanced. That little crayfish lookin thing, that was cool.
staci (Apr 19, 2005)
the web is pretty neat..but yeah it seems a little rough..its good..but rough. theres something weird with its red markings..just too blotchy? it seems unfinished, like you didnt take that extra step to make things smooth and...well..finished. plus given the time and kb's you spent on it, you prolly could have posted it on intermediate and spared yourself the bullshit. know whatta mean? ; )

"...And here, my prize, the Black Widow. Isn't she lovely and so deadly? Her kiss is fifteen times as poisonous as that of the rattlesnake. Her venom is highly neuro-toxic, ah, which is to say that it attacks the central nervous system. Causing intense pain, profuse sweating, difficulty in breathing, violent convulsions, loss of conciousness, and finally, uh, death.
You know, I think what I like the most about her is her inborn need to dominate, posess. Immedietly after her consumation to the smaller and weaker male of the species, she kills and eats him! Oh, she is delicious! And I hope he was..."
-Vincent Price, from an Alice Cooper album. :D (from memory so it may be a bit off but it's damn close, lol)

Great drawing, I'm really loving the web. Definitely shudder-worthy and photo-like.
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Apr 20, 2005)
I still think she needs more highlights to define her and make her not so one-dimensional (some with color, even). Usually if a web is visible it's because light is bouncing off of it and it shimmers... you might try highlighting places on the web for that effect. Also, maybe the gray background is a bit dull and too close to the color of the spider to let her stand out.
davincipoppalag (Apr 20, 2005)
Thank you for all your suggestions and help, you guys. I have lots of space left and will try to spruce this up with them. I appreciate it.. lol CV sorry for the shudder lol
TaCO (Apr 20, 2005)

So.... Any better?
emmamommalag (Apr 21, 2005)
Doggone it! It looks like it's gonna crawl right off the screen... that's enough. lol
DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited Apr 21, 2005)
Yes, this is much better. I would still like to see more "glistening" of the spider web, and possibly a little color in the background?... that gray just kind of "bores" the whole thing out, if you know what I mean. Your efforts in improving it have been well spent, I'd say.
Aubrey (Apr 22, 2005)
Gonna have some nightmares... yep...
Nice job makin it look like a creepy crawly awful awful spider.
davincipoppalag (Apr 22, 2005)

davincipoppalag (Apr 22, 2005)

Animegirl250 (Apr 29, 2005)

Maiko (Sep 22, 2005)
I almost got bitten by one of these in elementary shool +_+;;
we were doing PE, and it crawled up my leg. TT__TT;;;
Queen_Asheer5600 (Oct 1, 2005)
Ah the Black Widow, one of the true beauties of the spider kingdom (Aside from the Yellow, Black and White orb webs I have here) yet one of the most deadly. I am a true fan of spiders, mainly because they are very interesting. Just never bring a Brown Recluse or Wolf Spider near me *shudders* I will freak out then >_<

Wonderful work :D keep up the great work *claps*
ShePaintsWithBlood (Oct 22, 2005)
What an amazing beautiful creature. She is absolutely stunning. Lovely job and this is a view of her underside even which is perfect. The limb structure is very real. I have quite a few about and in the house so I get a chance to admire them often and must say this is very real.
davincipoppalag (Oct 22, 2005)
You have them in the house and admire them??? I would be 300 miles away if I had those! hehehe Thanks..
Sweetcell (edited May 5, 2006)
Just came to your gallery to find this piece. She's absolutely beautiful, I really have no trouble with spiders. If ones in the tub I make sure and scoop it out and place it safely back on the ground. (I know I know I'm nuts) And one time I spent hours watching a spider make it's way across one side of my fence to the other on this long spider line. It was mezmerising to watch. If I could I'd have a Turantula as a pet. (but my cats would eat it.) I am so in love with that hourglass. They are the beauties of the spider world. (though not the most dangerous.) One of my favorite of yours Poppa.

Oh, forgot to mention those are amazing webs.
