so I'm arachnaphobic.

I had to really rush this at the end so i'm afraid it didn't turn out as good as I wanted, but deadlines are deadlines.

the way its part of the background and yet stands out so much from the background is amazing.

Great job, its looks so very smooth. Kinda reminds me of some of lawrences work.

Holy crap that's smooth. I echo the lawrence sentiments and I think the piece turned out great overall. Although excuses will always be excuses, I do think the lack of background imagery and distorted perspective can be backed up by the fact that when facing your fear you do lose focus and tend to become sick and distorted as you freeze up. I think the colors and style of the pic accomplishes this because as much as I try to examine the wonderful smooth bits around the spider I can't help but have my eyes messed with and drawn back to the center.

cure: I'm defenitely not used to using so many colors.

alligators: I meant to put a whole army of critters behind/around the spider but I ran out of time.

whats that little snake doing back there?  are you also scared of lil' snakeys?

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/24/2008 11:06
The angle of the buildings doesn't seem to match that of the spider, and the right side of the image has too much empty space.  I think the large palette might've prompted you to use more colors in some areas than necessary, making them less crisp than they should be.  All in all it's a great piece, and I'm betting it'll hit weekly showcase, assuming the preview image isn't too inconspicuous.

Oh mang, when I saw this, I thought it was Lawrence's work. Surprise, surprise, Setzer with the smooth dithering. Great job Setz, I'm sure this will put you atop as a contender for the competition.
