I'd call the creature the "attrachnid" then again, that could refer to any attractive arachnid

I used to date a "slut-spider", to use the English translation for the term used for this species. In real life, while use of the term "jorogumo" is perfectly acceptable in this species' culture, use of the English translation when 1 is within earshot of you is basically a good way to get yourself eaten by your girlfriend or wife.

I'm not japanese and I didn't about Jorogumo but it looks perfect to me
That's extremely clever the way you've worked the spider's colours and patturning into her clothes and a spider-like display into her hairstyle. Beautifully done.

Indeed.  A couple of tidbits I would point to at this juncture.  First, his may have been part of the inspiration for D&D's driders.  Secondly, this raises some amusing mental imagery in Star Trek Online.

Given the evolution of Voyager's EMH into a sentient being, the idea of Trek ships' main computers doing something similar is not beyond the pale; nods to the 'mental models' of Arpeggio of Blue Steel very intended.  The jorogumo is a fitting basis for the hypothetical mental models which could arise on Tholian ships (which all have arachnid-themed reporting names)... in fact the term itself is the reporting name given to the upgraded Recluse.

Beautiful work! The texture you used in this really fits the character. I like how you used those little details to bring up her personality. Everything seems to be in harmony in this piece. (:
