    Thanks Delofasht and Blindlynx!

    I went for the second one in the end, it's a bit more straightforward for my first eow.
    It is still a bit dark at the moment, I hope to lighten the areas behind the trees to pick them out from the background a bit more and introduce some new colours. Looking at it again I don't seem to have light source, so might put a sickly moon in the sky.

    @Moirae - Yep! Go for it! Looking at the work, two option are grown in my mind: you could put a HUGE moon for pull up trees in black shape with white glaring on webs... Or you could even think of white trees, enveloped with webs, with black spiders standing out on them. Just for contribute =)

    @Moirae - I like the composition you chose as well, the mood is very defined. Looks good so far.

    I am posting one last time here I think this is my final, I will let it set for a day and spend another couple hours later perhaps. I'm still a touch slow I think, this took me roughly 20 hours to do. It was EXTREMELY enjoyable to do, more so even than the recent character of the week things I had done, and I believe this piece is something I would put in my portfolio, which is exactly what I'm going to do. Loved the challenge, might make a few tweaks before posting in finals.

    @Moirae - Very neat work, I like it. Happy you followed my advice. Maybe just considerate to put a light round shadow on the pic edge, just for focus more, and emphatize the moonlight.

    @Gstar - welcome, and don't worry about crimes. Everyone born guilty against prospective =) Innocence is to be conquered!

    ptimoszuk:
    I like that a lot. It's weird and unsettling but not overtly "scary". I don't know if that was your intention, but it's cool. On a compositional note, I think it might be nice to push the fore/mid/background separation further. Perhaps one of those hanging sacs up in the extreme foreground.

    Gr2n:
    Excellent piece. I think this is a nice alternate point-of-view to the expected caves and tunnels (like mine haha), but I think there needs to be more dramatic webbing for it to really read as a spider's lair. Right now if you removed the spider itself from the scene, the webs might just be because it's an old building. It's not immediately obvious a spider lives there. My 2 cents!

    I started working on something for this even though I won't have time to finish today.
