    Argh. I didn't make dem legs blubbery... Oh, well. Way too long; Photoshop 7. I sleep now.


    Pinkerton's Spider, the only known Arctic insect, maintains its body heat through constant motion -- never stopping, never sleeping (hence the name). Its thick, leathery, blubbery skin stores fat for extended periods of time. Although frightening due to its size (and bioluminescent patches), the Pinkerton's Spider's venom is dangerous only to cold-blooded creatures, such as the fish that comprise its diet...

    Nice work on that fur (aka freaky hairy leggs). Like the color-scheme aswell.

    I don't know if I need to sign up for this, but I liked the idea, so I thought to contribute. Enjoy! Oh, and I had to go Antarctic, needed a penguin. Sorry.

    A recent discovery to the arctic shores, this spider is thought to be an invading species, having stowed on a science ship, and adapting to it's new enviorment. painter, 45... mine isn't as blubbery as some of the other examples here

    Hamsta, I thought of that same layout, but couldn't get it! Nice work, great minds think alike.

    Spiders frighten me anyway, making them fat and covering them with little warts hasn't improved our relationship.



    Talin and AsylumSeaker, really like your designs. Hamsta, you couldn't pay me to hold that.

    about 2 hours. Nice job on this one guys. I know spiders produce their silk from their abdomen, but i wasnt sure if any did it from their mouth... maybe they just wad it up there and use it. Who knows, i can check at how stuff works.com.... looks cool for now tho.

    thx Lingmerth
    and about yours : I like this two guys, like the simple way you did them.
    Your spider looks quite likeable and looks a bit like seal to me

    Carfax - I like the spine of your creature, the fur in conjunction with bulge

    Hamsta - I promise that the next time I will try to say something usefull, but I'm not good at giving advices and even if I watch carefully a pict I often can't figured sth out. So, you don't use linework but insteed of that you have a painting style and it's cool. You leave often a big part (or a whole ) pict without details or not finished, but recently I have noticed that it works fine on your pictures and sometimes from such not precise shapes you build so cool drawn elements like ,for example, this head of the spider. The advantages of your works is also the depth ( but you surely know it, it's always importent element on your pict)
    I was thinking a couple times if it's good or not to use similar method to draw pictures, or it would be better changing it from time to time.( it's the question to everyone, who want to answer)
    I ask because I can't decide what chose. I noticed that you choosen one means and do it consistently.
    But I like one day one style and on the next day I want to draw in another, and than again in another one. I like the most of drawing/painting styles and have a mess in my head. Is there a risk that if I practised continually sth in different way I would be bad in all of styles instead of good at one ???

    Maybe more of an elephant spider...

    Carfax, Asylumseaker: Great designs they really do look like they are draped in blubbery flesh., something I dont think I did very well.

    This is my second DSG, I was intrigued by the concept of an even uglier version of a spider.

    Dont know how I feel about it, crit away.

    Whenever a word is unclear, please Google the word you're looking for plus "definition". You'll always get numerous dictionary sites that'll clarify it for you. There's never an excuse for not understanding a word, in any language, as long as you know how it's spelled.

    ;P

    Now that I see the other submissions I noticed mine isn't very blubbery.
    It's late but it works.

    Yo! JörgenGiftmördaren catch!
    Svensk-Engelsk Online ordbok

    Aga - Thanks, I guess I subconsciously really like seals
    BlackLion - Nice, color and fur, like the spider design aswell, What program did you use? I'm guessing you scanned an inked pic into PS?
