Drider by raerae Drider by raerae
It crawled down the wall, spindly legs clacking on the hard stone floor of the cavern, the green glow of the fungus clinging to the rock only enhancing the creature's ghastly, arachnid form. It's black, dead eyes looked around as if sensing someone about.

It was once a person, a drow by the name of Ezel'ix Zaulyl, a warrior who decided to go against the teachings of Lloth, rebelling against the matriarchal rule. He fell to the drow priestesses and through chants and magic, his body was warped and mutated into this twisted half-drow, half-spider form.

Lloth is not merciful.

Dark Elves are fun in DnD 5th Edition. I can plot to kill everyone and because of high charisma, everyone thinks I'm their friend  > : D

Very nice. The lighting gives it an appropriately creepy atmosphere, and he's quite a good looking fellow too.

Okay that's just cool. Totally snagged my fear of spiders, but that's okay because it was VERY cool to look at!

All the green is so awesome! And I love how it looks kinda blurred. All... surreal and stuff... *nods wisely*
devouredex Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2006
wow, awsome piece, love the dark green tones, great detail work, will fav :D
yami-caffeine Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2006
Ah man, Sei. This is like ... so freaking awesome. D: The green lighting is absolutely perfect - really sets the mood ... and holy damn wow. The spider anatomy looks even better after being coloured. Lovely job on his hair, too ... even with the dulled green and grey, it stands out so starkly from the rest of the picture's darkish tones.

I've got to fave this, man. D:

Colored lighting is pretty fun to play around with, even if you're no great shakes at coloring =p
