By the light of my spider I traverse these midnight realms...

Vague thoughts of Ariadne and the Labyrinth from the Beast in its labyrinth in Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, mixed with memories of Drow and their spider priestesses...

:iconshadewitch: pointed out the similarity to the "Stairway To Heaven" Led Zeppelin album cover/poster, and - as my sister has it up on her wall XD I think that was definitely another subconscious source.

ArtRage 2.5 pen and tablet, about three hours.

it's amazing how you managed to show the difference between skin and dress using nothing but white/grey on black...

In the thumbnail, this reminded me of The Hermit, from Tarot.

Oh? *goes and looks it up* Oh wow, yes. I see what you mean.
Hmm, maybe the Led Zeppelin cover was based on the Tarot...
Jilstr's avatar
It was, actually. Im pretty sure there was an intentional similarity there.
