If this wins something u should put the spoils in a trust fund for your boy. Hopefuly he's not scarred for life. Morbid... but cool.

Whoaaaa...here's she comes! Watch out boy, she'll chew you up! Big props to the Hall & Oates inspired title. And bigger props to the eerie artwork.

thanks for the great comments everybody.
i appreciate it and feel all warm and fuzzy, as opposed to the creepy crawly that i made you feeel with this illustration, hahaha


and to casually address the point of the similarities to the hobbit, yes the concept of a spider eating a human has been done before. i dont claim to be the originator of this idea, this is only my take on it. and i am very flatterred to be compared to the amazing artists that have worked with tolkien's vision.
the concept is the same, but as far as the artwork similarity goes, well you can be the judge:

animated spider from hobbit

hobbits wrapped up

and i am sure there have been other sci-fi/fantasy renditions of this subject, as well as most everything that can ever be found on threadless or anywhere. haha, there is sno more conceptual originality left in the world, just originality in ones vision of it.

no big deal, really, i love tolkien...and have wanted to do some illustrations in the subject. but john howe has done it sooo well, there isnt much point in trying to recreate perfection...haha

i actually really am very flattered by the comparrison.

helo

Yeah, it's obvious it isn't the Tolkein spider since it has the black widow hourglass on it. The huge spider in "Return of the King" was so well done that any spider using its web to wrap something triggers our memory of it. So you should definitely be flattered by the comparison.

Nice, but I think that there should be a little more linework depicting the spider's abdominal mass. Otherwise, that semi moon shape is too harsh.
