Her overpowering lust and hunger for men enables this clever little soulless trog to mire many o' the opposite sex. Never will you find a more attractive woman with a hairy chest. More ex-husbands than Mr. Akuku's ex wife toll, she's always looking for a new candidate to fill the position... oh, looks as if she might have found one.


Technical stuff: I'm quite aware that the black widow's “hour glass” doesn't belong on the cephalothorax, I didn't put it on her abdomen basically for artistic reasons. It would be extremely difficult to have a drider with a forward pose that allows you to see their abdomen. Anyhow, I have her “dangling” from the nest roof because I quite wanted her legs to be in that position. A while back my sister and I caught a really interesting spider, and when it was alarmed it would assume that position, it just was the coolest. She obviously has no expression of alarm, I wanted her to have an almost possessed look. Like it's no longer her calling the shots anymore, but her lust and hunger (though she is still rather quite clever, as spider's often are I'm told). There's a few more things people could nitpick if they want to. The black widow doesn't have such markings on her legs... I know, technically a black widow doesn't have a womans head attached to it either, so... er... yeah

lastly, thank you to the list of people who threw in their 2 cents. It helped immensely and I really did try to at least listen to what you were trying to say, but still did it my way in the end.

It's not often you see a spider given an element of beauty or elegance. The Widow by =cypherx gives you good reason to be afraid, but good reason to be awed at the same time. ( Suggested by saintpepsi and Featured by alyn )

Are you a fan of Dark Souls or is this purely coincidental?
