Skitter

Finally - Skitter from web serial Worm - parahumans.wordpress.com/

I tried to make it look like something homemade by someone not well versed in making cool designs, but still impressive and scary enough.
I - again - made few tweaks to the design for various reasons.
- Armor is supposed to be black and suit under grey. I basically switched the colors. I wanted the armor to have kinda web-like texture and it didn't worked with black.
- Mask have strap over head to keep it on, not described anywhere in novel, but it makes sense. I made few sketches for the mask how it would fit and be worn. This system seemed the best.
- Design of the mandibles is toned down a lot which fits I think. At least for the few first versions of the costume, which were much more functional than decorative.

Insect uses stock images from free-stock-by-wayne.deviantart… painted over. Saved a LOT of time.

I'm late for the party, having just begun reading Worm yesterday (being a fairly fast reader, I'm at 4.2 now though). Great fan art you've made here - you've really managed to capture a lot of details! I like how it's very visible that this is a very young girl underneath the armor. I genuinely think of your image here, as the official book cover now. 
And she wondered why she was mistaken for a super villain the first time.
Sandara, if credited, can a current liveblogger use this art as his header for his lets read of Worm? He would probably simply include the word "Worm" in a font of his choice under the picture.
Will we be seeing more Worm from you? I've been loving your art style!

I hope so. I have few pictures in progress, stuck at various problems. Recently I started Dragon in her first iteration of android body, so that may be the next one.

Yeah, I have no problem.
Well I would have a problem if you credited me as Sandara like you asked in previous post :-)
This is a fantastic rendition of Skitter. I'm really blown away by it!

Thanks for notice. Looks like it's not a sale of my art but a prize to let them run it through the algorythm. Well, I would be probably interested in seeing that too...

It does say "Buy a Print"

It is your art so I would bring up the issue.

AMAZING!!!!!! <3 worm and best picture of Skitter/Taylor in costume I've seen!
Disregard this! I found the correct resolution. It looks great as a desktop image.

Great art.

There should be fullHD download. I can make even bigger version, but I usually find it a little bit of an overkill for dA.

Nice, I'm reading this right now!
Wow, this is the best picture of Skitter I've seen.  I like that she's visibly wearing swimming goggles.

I can see why everyone who sees her is terrified.
