ancient spider god

A rather dark drawing around my current insect obsession that emerged while playblasting turned into something even darker...


  1. The expression on this little arthropod is what makes this drawing. A very tricky thing to do when giving personality to one of natures non-cute variety.
    Next comes the illustration itself..Magnificent!
    The depth of field really draws you in. I will have to pick your brain about the technique you used.

  2. Cheaars Kristian. I often think the term 'monster' depends on your point of view. And so tried to give him some kind of pathos. I definitely think the composition could have been better - need to somehow use, but break the symmetrical format.
