spider web by bodesta spider web by bodesta
Acrylic Paint on Canvas.

I thought this would be a really cool idea, to paint a spider web. It took FOREVER. I still may make some adjustments, perhaps go back over a few of the lines.

You could combine that image with something else to great effect, I think. A rose, a skull, many things superimposed over it would have an interesting effect.

Damn that's intricate. You must have had a really fine brush to do all that linework so well.

Excellent stuff.

It's simple and sweet, but I kinda feel it needs a trapped fly or something. ^^

yeah other people have said that too...its just, ive very rarely actually seen a fly caught in a fresh web.

Maybe you could try painting on dew or something.

Though I bet it'd be hard to paint...:(

I like it. There are too many people doing things that are too busy. This is simpler. It allows you to see it with out having to keep up.

Seems kind of plain to me. I think it needs a little spider, or an egg sack, or even just a couple of drops of red paint somewhere. There's just really no focus point at the moment. The web does look very realistic though.

thanks, i wanted it to be simple. most of the time when you see a spider web, there isnt a spider in it. but agree, i think its missing something, but i sort of like it like this too.

nice! i like the placing as well, it's more interesting the way you did it than if you had centered it. it's very organic looking :nod:

haha thanks. i thought it would look too cheesy centered. life isnt perfect, and neither are spider webs

its really good... technically... but did you use just plain black and white? that may be why you feel that there's something 'off'... perhaps try adding hues? *shrugs*
