Spider Fae by ankewehner Spider Fae by ankewehner
It'd been a while since I drew something using only ink.

ATC (3.5 by 2.5 inches), drawn using Copic Multiliners.

For sale at Etsy, or send me a message. I might be open to trades, too.

I give you props. It's not easy working in ink since you can't undo any mistakes. I like the perspective. It was a good choice to make her seem like a towering demon and made something simple look extravagant. I like the background and the criss-crossing lines. Surprising how something that easy can add so much atmosphere. My only suggestion is that since this is so simple you really could have gone crazy with the detail on the dress.

Thanks a lot for your in-depth comment, I really appreciate it. :)
The dress lacks detail because I was going for a "living shadow" kind of feel, but now there are ideas for a spider-themed dress creeping into my head...

I encourage you to go after that dress. What I meant by details was keeping them concentrated in that area where the spider web was already formed. That way the uppper body still had a shadowy feel while the lower half kept the eyes interested.

ich mag die schraffur im hintergrund. wie bist du auf die idee gekommen?
Reply
:iconankewehner:
ankewehner Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Danke!

*heh* Die Schraffur im Hintergrund habe ich vor allem hinzugefügt, damit die Linien des Spinnennetzes im "Rock" besser hervortreten - der weiße Hintergrund hätte die eventuell "überstrahlt".
Die Idee zu dem ganzen Bild... weiß ich ehrlich gesagt nicht. Ich mag Spinnen halt, hatte schon lange nichts mehr nur mit Tinte gezeichnet, Silhouetten sind einfacher zu zeichnen als vollständig schraffierte Figuren, das kam halt so zusammen. :)

That's a Dark Elf from DnD. Nice rendition.

No, not at all from DnD. Just something random.

May not have been your inspiration (I come up with things randomly and then later see that they've been done before as well, I believe you when you say this was random) but the Dark Elves as portrayed in DnD look like that and their Goddess is a spider deity. ^^; Still, a good picture, well done. :nod:

Dont know anything about drawing and I cant draw for the life of me but this is fantastic. Black widow feel to it with the female playing with the smaller male. I also like the shading and the way you left a circle around the smaller spider. Gives it a kinda religious feel to it. Awesome !! xx

:iconankewehner:
ankewehner Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you!

The reason for the circle around the spider is that otherwise it wouldn't be visible well, though. :D

I realised that but its still gives it a really good effect and emphasis on the smaller spider. xx

what did you use to get that deep black color if it was only ink?

Ok, cause there would have been no other way unless that pen happened to be a sharpie. Sharpie's are pretty fun to use though, so I wouldnt have been able to blame you.

It takes a butload of time. Almost as much time as pointalism. This took me hours to finish. [link]

This took me days. [link]
This entire thing was done with a bazillion of tiny little dots. Even where the guy looks a solid color of yellow, it was tiny dots. I think aussie aboriginee style pointalism should be taught more in american schools

Actually, you can get that kind of even coverage with ink, it just takes practice and patience.

really? They are a really good art medium, but I guess it is because too many people use them for vandalism or sniffing. I'm working on something right now with a sharpie.

I guess it's just because the company doesn't sell them here.

Permanent markers are around, but the brand is Edding.
