Spider Queen and her King Spider

We’ve got some preliminary Mind Spider magic from Dawnsen and I can’t wait to share it!  Ty will weigh in with his masterful thoughts later so you’re stuck with me for now!  I am pretty thrilled overall!

This is an example of how we can all push each other to new heights. Dawnsen mentioned he was inspired by the early Spider Queen designs and incorporated aspects of them into his version.

I’ve already told Dawnsen this, but my favourite thing about this design is that while the Spider Queen is quite obviously vile and spider-like, her face maintains enough human characteristics to convey a wide range of emotion and reaction. That way Dawnsen can get a real performance for the character and make her really expressive. But she’s still plenty inhuman and freaky too.

One delightful addition: Dawnsen has added some spines on her back, figuring that’s  how she would connect to the web and give orders! Now I know what my final clues have to reveal!  Thanks for solving part of my writing dilemma, Dawnson!!

Dawnsen also has some preliminary giant spider designs. So the awesome never sleeps here at Holmes Inc.!

    As they say on a Futurama DVD commentary, “it shouldn’t be sexy, but it is.”

    This walks the perfect balance between humanesque and monstrous. Lovin’ it.
