Other spooky themed artworks:



This is Epeira Diademata, a vampire-like entity who lives near households in the form of a spider with a cross on it's back. She can predict weather with the help of webs. It is said in the folklore that she is the restless soul and wandering corpse of a young woman who was allergic to spiders and was killed by one.


p.s. Epeira Diademata is also the name of a real spider(that has a cross on its back). I first read about it in an animal biology book and fell in love with the name.

ya know, in a way this kind of reminds me of Raven from Teen Titans

Maybe because of the way I've drawn the shape of the eyes. The color of her skin and the purple also help. I like Raven but I wasn't inspired by her. I also have a sketch of Raven. I hope I'll color it some time...
