Drider by Ironshod Drider by Ironshod
Here is another painting that I did for the 4th edition of Dungeons and Dragons. This one was an illustration for the Monster Manual. The creature is called a Drider, which is kind of a cross between a dark elf and a giant spider.

This was a really cool subject to paint :) although I wouldn't like to meet one of these creatures!

So beautiful.

I would like your permission to make a sculpture of
this beautiful creation of yours the Drider.

Of course I will put your name there, in my text.
With reference to you Drider.

I love this one's aggressive posture and expression. I see a little panic in her eyes. It's as if Drizz't himself trespassed onto her layer and she is both pissed and afraid of her own annihilation. The arachnid features are near flawless as if you took them from a black widow spider. You even threw in the pedipalps which is what most of the drider drawings lack.

Looks like what I imagined the Spider Queen to look like in the Dark Elf Trilogy of the Forgotten Realms series.
