had a dream where this attacked me, so i have been working on rendering it, and modifying it for fun times.

what i really want to ask you guys is whether i should stick with solid shading like on the boob, or try and do more soft 'realistic' shading?

    Yeah, I agree with The Black Hunter. The stinger seems to go down farther than the legs though.

    I've seen something like this. It was in a Japanese artist's encyclopedia of mythical creatures. It'll be interesting to see where you take this.

    This has potential. Definitely darken the color pallet and focus on a real grimy, fleshy and bony look is the way I'd go. Good luck with however way you decide to take it.

    i like this idea, i'll play with making her soft fleshy parts look fleshy and grimey, and have her legs be like bones, i'll probably play with the stripes too, make them more like body plating.

    have lot's of stuff i have to do right now, but i am going to try and work on it later tonight.

    here is a new piece i did in a few hours with my brand new wacom tablet (oh my god its beautiful). i used this picture to try and get used to the new bigger size and feel of it, my old tablet was small and broken, so braking old habits i had to use to compensate for my old tablet has been interesting.

    very nice. Don't forget the highlights in the hair though, and you may wanna consider giving the face a bit more form to make it somehwa identifiable. loving the color.

    I actually like solid shading, but you would do well to add some style to it. Don't just follow the normal contours, throw in some crazy edges here and there.

    the hair is purposefully pitch black and seems to drain any light that touches it, and the face is almost completely obscured by it most of the time, but were it to throw back its head it would have a blank woman's face

    Your light source is high, but underneath the spider it's almost as if it's on the horizon, and on the trees it's coming from a different direction.

    the original seems a little more, uh... structurally sound?

    I mean, the shape of their bodies varies a lot between the first and the second

    It looks too awkward. All the weight in the back would make it topple back, lifting its legs off the ground. Unless the back "sack" is very, very light; like a balloon.

    EDIT: I'm talking about the green version.
