Artwork Description

"Aracne, Aracne, your web, where is it?
By the trees of the forest your companions I have seen.

Don't look for me, traveller, you will not find me here.
Of this place I have gone away for a never more return.

Aracne, Aracne, your web, where is it?
Of the trees of the forest doncella's hair are falling.

Damned is my destiny, nobody I can be shown.
Great punishment prevailed to me to weave this loom to end.

Aracne, Aracne, your web, where is it?
On the trees of the forest the moon your silhouette trims.

I don't know how to escape nor where I can be hidden.
My presence causes hatred, fear, grief and pain.

Aracne, Aracne, your web, where is it?
Between the trees of the forest the wind whispers your pains."

This work is made in photoshop 7. Here you can see a large version: http://www.crisortega.com/ilustraciones/1024x768.jpg

SPECTACULAR DRAWING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Creo que por el nombre eres española, solo asi lo creo,pero puedo equivocarme, asi que te pido disculpas si NO eres española. Pero bueno, que el mensaje principal que queria transmitirte ya está en inglés y esque...es un dibujo estupendo!!! Lo encuentro muy bien realizado, mucha dedicación, y además, has usado unos colores muy bonitos, pálidos y bien combinados, que le dan un toque de miedo...de tension... Perfecto. Sigue así. Muaxitos!!!!!!!!!!! Laughing out loud +- cRIz -+

You say it was done in Photoshop, but what you really mean is "retouched/enhanced in Photoshop", right?

'Cause I cannot imagine it being done completely in Photoshop. How?
Really impressive.

Thankyou for taking us into the heart/soul of the spider. To many a spider fits into a storyline or scene rather than having a soul of its own . Thanks for reminding us of the interconnectdness of all things and of a reality that many would not see. Tim

This is absolutely amazing! I have been veiwing many fantasy works and this is my favorite by far!

Guest's picture

Like the look about her. Alluring and dangerous: she's got that keen look in her eyes. You have a way with giving her silver, blonde hair and not age her prematurely. Awe-some!

Guest's picture

I want her phone number....

Guest's picture

I absolutely adore this. Fantastic work

Guest's picture

After another look...had to comment on the creature's wardrobe... lovely; very spider-esque, as though the clothing was made of spiders' silk.

Guest's picture

Are those wings or spider legs on her back? Gorgeous work.

Que sepas que no puedo entrar a tu pagina web...no sé por qué pero el acceso me es imposible...¿qué tal te va con el encargo que te hice?...si tienes mucho trabajo...bueno...no importa , puedes tomarte el tiempo que desees. Que sepas que estaba deseando ver una de tus nuevas ilustraciones aquí por fin y me alegro un montonazo de que haya sido elegida por los editores puesto que se lo merece. Es un trabajo genial , muy digno de ti , ya tú sabes...^^*besos*

I just checked out your gallery, and noted that this newest work seems to be a new style for you. This is NOT a criticism of the older style, but I do much prefer this piece. Beautiful work! Thank you!

Guest's picture

Wow! Love this! The background is wonderful, and I love her wings and the fabric draped about her hips. Can't wait to see more.

Guest's picture

Wow, that's some amazing work. Wonderful detail work. I'm amazed. Wonderful job! Completely worthy of Editors pick!

Guest's picture

Wow...I'm totally blown away. And those close-ups of the face and the spiders are fantastic! I didn't even see all the spiders until I saw the close-ups. But the level of detail in this is fantastic. Bravo! *applauds*

Art at its best.
