Oh man, I like this. I think the part I like the best is the red marks around the spikes on the abdomen. the fact that they are now just a quickly brushed stripe, but each segment has it's own variation. That's awesome looking. I may steal some of the color scheme when I get to painting mine.

Creepy look achieved!  In addition to what RouterMike said, I really like the eyes.  Nicely done.

I don't think i have ever seen a spider so lovingly painted!

 

Attention to detail depth and shading make this one positively alive - FANTASTIC!

Looks great!

 

I really like the 'ombre' effect you give to the legs.

Just watched the Shelob scenes from RotK...  This guy looks like a good match to be her mate! Well done!

Thanks Thes!

 

** Frantically Googles "ombre"**

 

It's just dry-brushed overlapping layers of ever lighter colours. ::):

Thanks David!

 

I'd be lying if I said that ROTK didn't inspire me, along with red knee tarantula pics.

      This one has been sitting on my desk begging to be finished for awhile now.  After taking the pics I fiddled with the face and changed the color of the stained wood to a walnut which I like better.  I'll try to get a photo of that up at some point.  I had a wip on this with all my colors and process but the evil empire of photobucket ate the pictures.  
       
      I used some of the bright skin triad and for the shadow colors corporeal shade.  The basework is made from the firm sculpey (the gray type,) a stick and etched brass foliage.  The spider shield and barrel are from reaper's bones line.  The crystal I did with a few real ones and then just made the rest out of sculpey.  I had fun with the idea of someone emerging from shadow so painted the back with the shadow colors and then blended the front to back which gave me a very nice green I used also on the foliage.  I made that using a combo of chestnut brown, corporeal shade and linen white.
       
      Enjoy!  C&C welcome and feel free to ask any questions!  I can try to dig up some of the old photos, but having lost my hard drive, it may take time to find the right SD card.









       
      Also, I have clearly been playing too much Skyrim...

      CADIRITH, Demonic Spider.
       
      I used a Web Stamp for the base  a gift from @knarthex, as was most of the flock on the base.
      Added some venom with Vallejo Water Effects,
      Base is made of foam.
       
      Likes and Comments welcome.
      Negative critique, talk to the Spider first.

      Finally finished the Demon Lord of the Undead or rather I guess Orcus.   Started doing this when I received Bones II.  So that should give you all an idea how long it has been sitting there on the painting desk in my study.   Was going to do the whole thing in greens/blues.  But decided about 1/4 of the way into painting I would do it in a more traditional ruby/crimson skinned look.   Which then became a dark toned ruby/crimson scheme.  Such a great feeling to finish something that seems to have taken a eternity.  Talk about torment!

      I've decided on the figures I'm using for this project now too, they changed since last time. I want to enter it into this year's Reapercon Diorama category (of course) and I want it to qualify for Bombshell Babes diorama, so I'm picking out 5 babes to battle the keeper (RBG) and his summoned demon (reaper glabrezu): 1) Celeste - Sorceress/wizard, 2) Khai the Huntress - ranger, going to weapon swap her to give her a bow, 3) Thorga Half Orc - Barbarian, Astrid Thunderhammer - Cleric, and Sister Vasha Fane - Paladin.

      This piece will be 2 stories tall, it will have a lot of details and a lot of action, with a summoning circle that the Glabrezu is inside of at the time the heroines come rushing into the Keeper's Sanctum.
