Oh hello.

Wow. This piece is terrifying. Really well done (amazing, really) but nonetheless, terrifying! (that's not a bad thing of course!)

I have a huge fear of spiders, (but not extreme) so i can relate to this piece!

Over all i feel you captured the horrors of Arachnophobia! the emotion of terror in the mans frozen face, and the creepy webs, the spindly little spiders, and the dark background really give this piece its chilling effect.

All the elements were put together really well, I had to look back to see if this was photomanip or not! (it looks like you could have staged this, thats how nicely you put it all together i think! :D)

I'm still really creeped out, but this is definitely DD material!
What do you think?

Holy crap, I just felt my skin crawl for a second.

I kind of like how you did the webbing, although I feel as though it look more like melted strings cheese or something. I usually got the impression that spider webs, when bunched up together, kind of looked like cotton that was stretched out then sprayed with hairspray or something.

The crack on his cheek actually would have looked a lot more creepy if spiders were coming out of it, you know? Which I think you did that under his jaw, I'm not entirely sure.

I love his face though, but it kind of looks more angry than scared.

It seems like a nice piece, but it looks a bit busy,and could a bit more work, na?

This is totally creepy. It gives me the heebie jeebies like you wouldn't believe. It's done so very well, everything is blended smoothly, and the details are fantastic. The expression on the face is perfect considering that he's wrapped in spider webs. I HATE spiders, but I LOVE your deviation!
