Overcoming the Spiderscorp

Overcoming the Spiderscorp - student project

This project was so interesting for me. Usually I paint things that I like or at least are somewhat pretty but delving into my fears and drawing a creature I would flee from was actually a pretty great experience. Behold the Spiderscorp! (Scorpspider?) I usually face a challenge head in so I couldn’t separate the fear from me trying to overcome it so I added myself fighting it in there too and it somehow ended up very Lord of the Rings-y #nerd. Anyway! I used ink, watercolour and coloured pencils for this. I think I learned a lot from this project, especially trying to sort out this glow forever but I’m quite pleased with how it turned out in the end. The granulating watercolour reflected the light weirdly in my pic though, it looks like a much better fade on paper, one for me to remember when taking pics in the future. Ok I’ll stop talking now, thanks for the awesome course! :)
