Arachne by artstain Arachne by artstain
Arachne- an mythological creature half woman and half spider,
hhmmnn... this creature from castlevania aria of sorrow.
there's no info about this one ^^;


:iconfelis-maula:arachne was a Greek girl who was very skilled with weaving. she even went so far as to boast that she was better than even Athena. well, Athena heard about it and challenged her to a weave-off type thingy. she made a tapestry that made fun of all the gods, while Athenas was magnificent. Athena was so outraged that she turned the girl into a spider... Thanks for the info :D

actually... arachne was a Greek girl who was very skilled with weaving. she even went so far as to boast that she was better than even Athena. well, Athena heard about it and challenged her to a weave-off type thingy. she made a tapestry that made fun of all the gods, while Athenas was magnificent.

actually, there's another version where arachne was tricked into boasting about her weaving (her vanity grew because that was what the other women said) and when she was challenged by Athena, she wove a tapestry of life. When Athena showed her superior abilities, arachne hung herself, and because Athena was the (slightly) forgiving person she was, she turned arachne into a spider, the eternal weaver.

omg thats just so amazing... every detail is greatly executed.. and this is so feminine.. i wonder if the thing ur talking about is her arms.. hmm yes.. thats probably it.. i noticed most of ur females have a slight manly arms and legs.. so maybe if u lessen the muscles on those parts, like in here, the round muscle area in her shoulder could be a little lighter to lessen that muscle effect.. although i understand that ur point of view is from realism but sometimes, skinny *no muscles* can look more feminine.. ;p

what i dont understand is why are u blabbing about the femininity in ur works when u can draw perfect boobs.. lol.. omg.. i think u should continue with this style.. it's more unique this way.. so keep it up.. *^^*

and ur welcome... i appreciate the thought of even considering me to critique on ur works.. it was tough coz ur works are already great.. but i also learned something from commenting on ur female stuff.. *^^*

Wow, i was supposed to make something like this for my art homework last month.
This is really amazing, i love how realistic and natural the legs look!
Wow, you just keep surprising me every time you draw something!

Oh and about the mister jack, it's done, but the drawing is to big for my scanner.
So right now i am putting together all the parts i individually scanned from it.
Should not be to long now!
