LOTR - Shelob full body design by wynahiros LOTR - Shelob full body design by wynahiros
Had to do a full-body drawing of Shelob, since I didn't want to get stuck designing her in the middle of an illustration.

Non-movieverse.

Gave her Scroop leg-tips, just because. Decided to redesign the head from the first attempt.

Also, here's my proposed scale for Shelob (yeah, crappy sketch). The first one on the left is the Movie-verse Shelob (Mirkwood Spider-size, if I ever illustrate that set of scenes), second one is the size of my-verse Shelob(compared to a hobbit).

[link]

Materials: Mechanical pencil, of course.

-Wyna
Lord of the Rings is (C) J.R.R. Tolkien
Shelob design is (C) Olanda "Wyna Hiros" Fong-Surdenas

Sorry, lol.

Well, I've said my piece about this cool pic, so I'll just say that I'd love to see more monster sketches from you. I especially love your dragon designs.

Yeah I didn't think the shelob in the movie was quite big enough either. XD

SPIDDIE :D

Holy crap, that's big. The legtips work very well, as does the 'stinger' on the spinneret and the masses of hair on her abdomen- what I love most of all about it is what you've done with her mouth. It's all detailed and sharp. :heart:
