Splinterlands art contest | Haunted Spider
I am very happy to make my second entry for the @Splinterlands weekly contest, this time I present a drawing inspired by “Haunted Spider” which I chose because I immediately saw this letter, I imagined something very dark, spiders are one of my phobias and really my imagination thought of representing them in a disturbing way haha, I thought of making a female character who had a macabre smile and make this Haunted Spider come out of her neck as well as baby spiders that climb up her face, for this drawing I used colors similar to the original spider and making details a bit more realistic like adding hair texture to the spider.
I started with my sketch, the more I drew the more things I imagined to do, as I told you I wanted to do something quite creepy, since its colors and the theme that the character of this card is a spider gave rise to something like that, so I painted everything exactly as I imagined it, for her skin I chose purple tones to make it the closest thing to Haunted spider, I drew 8 eyes which I painted in a quite striking red, little by little I was shaping this face and while painting I fixed some features that were visible a little wrong from the sketch, for example: the nose, I had not realized that it was quite irregular luckily I was able to fix it.
For her hair I chose a color between gray and black, but finally I decided on a lilac tone, giving details in dark and light purple, I put the base colors on the spider and I really didn't know very well how to create a more realistic texture for her, so i thought a bit and searched through my brushes, i got a brush with a texture similar to fur and made a lot of little hairs with lilac and dark purple, the change was impressive, add a layer with a “screen” effect to make some flashes of light on HER face and some areas of the spider.
There are some baby spiders, walking on her face and neck, I thought that detail was very cool, but the most difficult moment came and it was to make the background, this part really cost me a lot since I couldn't get a tone that matched all my composition , something that would not overshadow all the work in front, so I chose to simply use a dark color and draw some lines with a strong pink, applying a radial blur and it gave this result and I really liked it, I tried at first to make a spider web but the truth is that it did not look very good at all.
Bueno esto fue un poco más difícil que el anterior, aunque no lo parezca sufrí mucho jaja, esta fue mi participación de esta semana espero que les haya gustado y mucha suerte a todos 💜
Well this was a little more difficult than the previous one, although it may not seem like it, I suffered a lot haha, this was my participation this week I hope you liked it and good luck to all 💜

Very creative with the spider there haha. This totally increased my fear of spiders xd. The ones with the big back makes it feel like it's carrying more venom to inject us with.
Hahahaha thanks 😃 I hate spiders but this was really cool to do 🤣
This is so creative Alexa, love the little red stuff on her face. Good job
Aww Thanks 😊

Asombroso, he visto varios de tus trabajos y la calidad es muy alta !!! un saludo ✌️
This is impressive. The spider eyes on her face and the skin color definitely gives her the spider vibe.
Great job and keep it up.
