Silk Lure by Ironshod Silk Lure by Ironshod
I planned this artwork to initilly looks like a nice fairy. Then on closer inspection you see a more sinister side, as the fairy entraps her prey with a silk lure, accompanied by her spider pet. A femme fatale, she is beautiful but deadly.

I hope you like it :)

My thanks to ~Rebecca-Parker-Stock whose photograph I used as reference for the figure.

Nice!

I'd love to see one with a fairy trapped in a spider's web. 

I thought that's what this was at first.

I Googled 'dark fairies' because when I redecorate my room it will have dark fairies be the theme. This came up, I really love this, so I drew it. I. FAILED. SO BADLY. Half of it cuz I used colored pencils.... but I can't draw realistic faces, and I can't draw legs, feet, arms, and hands at all.... And then when I created a dA account and say this I was like "MUST SEE WHO DREW THIS!!!!" Sorry that I copied, I didn't know what I was doing at the time, I ate a lot of sugar at it was in last September or October...

I love this, this is beautiful! And a lot of other artwork you do! :D

This is beautiful! I am designing a webpage for myself where I will feature my hobby which is collecting and breeding Tarantulas. This would be the perfect image to use in creating a set.
Would love it if you would grant me permission to use it? Would follow all your TOUs on your site.
Thank you !
