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.
*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.
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.
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
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
