    Ok, step 1 so far. I came up with the idea of mixing such a cute thing like a newborn baby with one of the most feared creatures: A spider.
    Tuning it up a little... about 10meters or so and giving it a female body at the front, than is stretching down to one of her babys, sitting there and looking up to her. On the back of her the other babys start climbing up on her body.

    At first I was a little concerned about this, if its not too much focused on the mother, but when I looked around the other sketches I felt fine again. ^^
    I hope I can do at least one other work.

    Thats the sketch and 3 thumbnails.
    I learned my lessons and this time I will only work on thumbs until I am totally sure of how I want it to look. I am still experimenting on the colors, but I think I will use a warm palette, although a cold one has its charm too. But since its supposed to give a motherly-warm fealing, warm colors should be better.

    I like what you said about thumbnails--I think I might use this method in the future.So thanks for that tid bit.

    I agree with your choice of colors--tho I like the cold one, it is too harsh for what you are trying to convey. Keep us updated

    @Blackspot: Thanks

    @Hala: No problem ^^ I am permanently endangered to loose myself in details so this method should work quite well for me.

    I added a 2nd color thumb that shows what usually happens when I am working too much on one picture. I play with the layers until I get a total flash over. Maybe its good for the picture, but for me its a signal to stop for today and sleep one night over it or get some feedback if its too much or not.

    Love the creepy idea. I'm not sure that even warm 'motherly' colours can make it comfortable, but I think that's great. Spiders that big - brrrrrrrrrr!
    Like the thumbnails too. Definitely a sensible plan that should work well to get you to the right combination of comp amd colour.

    Composition looks good, although I would extend the canvas to the left a little bit, and have a rock formation framing the sunlight.

    @latigid: No problem, I did that too on other works XD

    @Nickillus: Yea, I really hope to get a good mix between a warm feeling and a horror on the other hand.

    @ninjacat11: I am working on it ^^

    @Liffey: Thx, I will try that out on my next sketch.

    So far. I cleaned it up a little and added the babys. I like it that you never really see details of the faces, that gives the red eyes a really nice horror-feeling. Added some webs, so that the brats have something to hold on and give the cave a homie feeling.

    I only have some problem with the light. I like the strong version because its so flashy and gives the feeling as if it was outside the cave. But I am afraud that too much "special effects".

    Actually, I like the stronger version. Just be sure to put some good contrast in it.

    Just gotta say that the web hanging off her leg looks great, and I like how you have those creatures (I think?) on her back.

    I love it so far, my only crit is that the baby she is reaching for is a little hard to see.
    Really enjoying this so far
