Glowing Spider by dreamlandcody Glowing Spider by dreamlandcody
"The creatures of the dark forest are drawn to the glowing light radiating from the spider, which leads to their inevitable death."

This is my first speed painting. I have been stuck on this other piece I am working on and so I decided to just clear my mind with a new painting.

Took 40 minutes

Tools: Photoshop CS5, Intuos5

In Composition there is this rule of nines or thirds.
If you break up your picture into a 3x3 grid, the corners of the central square is
supposed to be the best place to put a focal point.

Looks great.

If real spiders could do this, my room would be bright all the time.

Mine too, seriously. It would be more comforting to know exactly where they are.

This is really good for being a speed painting. I really think you should work more on it and really let it evolve further in the details because you have a great building foundation for a beautiful mystical piece.

I LOVE THIS! Especially the glowing spider...seems like a scene that I would see in the Spiderwick Chronicles X3. I want a pet spider like that

Oh man, great background. It really looks like the forest goes on forever. I love the lighting you gave on the mushroom emanating from the spider. If spiders actually glowed like this, I may be more inclined to get near them.

I know huh!!! But instead, they camp out above your face while you are sleeping!! Ok, sorry. There are a lot of spiders where I live and they are always on my bed.
