Lolth

I don’t really think I did this one justice, but I had surge of painting energy and finished up this conversion Scottsz gave me when he was clearing out some old stuff.

lolth2I gave her dead, white eyes, and added some color to the black spider body, but mostly left his paint job alone.  The front legs have white tips, to suggest talons or horns.  The knees have a reddish highlight.

I can’t believe I forgot to fill in the hole in the base. On my list.  Also the Roslof painting, that the conversion is based on, gives her eight yellow spots on her “chest” area — probably secondary eyes.  (I had to look it up but apparently most spiders have two ‘main’ eyes with lenses and four or six secondary eyes that just detect light/shadow and movement.  Also spider eyes are simple, rather than compound like insect eyes. The more you know…) So the drow-head eyes must be her “main eyes” and the six spots are “secondary eyes.” Cute.

  1. Sweet!

  2. I like that hole in the washer. Makes it look like she is dragging victims to a sacrificial pit or something.

    • Hah! good point; maybe I should just build up a foundation for the base. And/or add some bones, trail of blood, something like that.
