Originally set out to draw a Spider-Man related fan artwork for Supanova 2014 - Sydney this weekend, so I could maybe get Stan Lee to see it - but got carried away with my own thing until here we are with this.

Oh well, kind of like this better anyway, was awfully fun to draw such twisted anatomy, and a spider body and legs violently emerging from within.

Started as a pencil illustration, then spent many hours drawing/painting in Photoshop CC. Would love to know what you think!

I have to like this one: the "hanging like a puppette on strings" pose is one of y favorites since some 80s anime

Better than the spider scene from Fulci's The Beyond.  Love to see this in a horror movie or book

Is this a dude with a spider for an arse, or a spider with a dude for a face?

Did you show it to Stan Lee anyway?

Sadly I was too busy at my stall to get a chance to - his line was so HUGE! Although I did get to see him from a far and sent him good vibes from my booth.

Damn. I would pay to see a Spider-Man reboot where Spider-man is something like that.
AustenMengler's avatar
Haha, then I think he would even scare the crap out of Venom! ;)
