Spiders !


Badge Awards

Here's my entry for the Deviant Art Fall Horror Challenge - "Your Worst Nightmare".

While this may be a little bit more grounded than my typical nightmare, it's probably not far off.

I used to like spiders quite a bit as a kid, but a few close encounters have since left me rather... twitchy. I have to say that I had to keep my feet off the ground for most of the reference gathering.
I hope you enjoy this piece and that it gives you as much shivers as it did for me while I was painting it !

Good luck to everyone entering, and thanks for reading :)

Brrr, if making chills down people's spines was your goal, it certainly worked for me! :D While not being scared of spiders, I still find the biggest of them gross and wouldn't touch one, even on a dare. The composition, low Dutch angle and sense of depth in your artwork are excellent, and really add to the creepy atmosphere. I also like your clever use of light and colors. Truly a great and incredibly well-crafted work. Congrats on your semi-win, and best of luck! :)
