hey folks, finally got around to doing something new. Have been working with insects in my sketchbook of late - mostly cuter stuff - http://visualtinkerings.blogspot.com...sect-life.html and have been aching to do something darker. I wanted to create something ancient and archetypal. Of course spiders really are - and I didn't want a simply threatening beast - I wanted to put something else behind the eyes - even if we're unsure of what it is. Took around 5 or so hours.
