Hey guys, this is some concept art for a character. It took about 45 minutes in photoshop. I have to pull 2 consecutive all-nighters to finish the character's model/texture/unwrap on time, so that will be fun.

Can you critique this please? I'm looking for any kind of critique really, but especially proportion, perspective, and anatomy.

A higher resolution image exists here: [link].

dont like the idea of a half human sitting on top of a spider.
it looks like if some handicapped person is sitting on top of a spider. not realy believable

i would more go for half human half spider like this

But do you think I'll ever get a job at Pixar? That's one of my goals in life.

first impressons, .. looks like a body stitched onto a four legged spider.
be better as a 'drider' style me thinks. This sort of 'mad lab' hybred doesnt work for me.

Either make a riding spider or a half humanoid spider. Not one thats stitched at the waist.

heres what im thinking..

but its been done. So maybe you want something that looks stitched together.
if so , fine, the Spider however doesnt look strong enough (big enough) to hold the human part. Beef it up.

hope this helps , and bear in mind, this is just my 10 cents.

Thank you for the quick replies guys!

Kleutscher: interesting idea, but I think I'll keep with the hybrid for now.

Davious: Okay, those are good references, and yes, I wanted to avoid the centaur-spider thing. Maybe instead of just plopping the guy on top of the spider's head, I could connect his body as an abdomen. More like a scorpion than a spider then.

Well I'll work on it in a couple of hours, I need some sleep for now. I will be actively checking this thread.

Again, thanks for the fast replies!

Awwww, boring, spiderman is soooo 90's.
I say make a Spiderpig.
Or, if you really want to incorporate a person why don't you go and make manbearpig, bearpigman
Pigbearman or whatever..:-D

On a more serious note, nice drawing, but I agree with the others, The body looks stitched on which looks weird imo.
