-Uneternal Sleep- by ArtificiallyAwake -Uneternal Sleep- by ArtificiallyAwake
First off I want you to understand just how hard it was to sit down and actually draw this. My skin was itching all night and my hand was shaking. I am still to this day terrified of spiders and even looking at the photo references on Google unnerved me alot.

That being said.
This was the hardest piece I ever worked on. I have always suffered from night terrors and spiders have always insisted on being present in all of them. Didn't help as a child my dads pet tarantula escaped and was found in my bed.....shudders

Painted with: Black india ink and Coffee, inked with black faber castels and sharpies

oh my Gawd... no... not another arachniphobic... oh Good Lord..... I'm right there with you on the creepiness of spiders man...
I'm deathly afraid of them and I will NOT sleep a wink until even a tiny one is dead. the story of the tarantula in the bed is fricken creepy as hell cause once at my dads old place when my parents were together, I was sleeping & it was storming which meant the power was out & it was late like 3 or so in the morning, I felt something on my arm since I keep them out of my blanket a lot. so I woke up, grabbed my phone for light & I literally saw a big yellow ugly thin legged spider on my duck pillow & it scared me so much I grabbed my pillow and blanket and high tailed it to my parents room. I didn't sleep a wink that night cause whenever I felt my blanket, I thought the spider followed me downstairs and was playing a sick game with my arm again. so I kept waking up and brushing my arm only to find nothing there. so don't worry you're not alone in the fear of spiders invading your bed at night. I'm sorry if that story scared you D:

I'm a fan of the swiffer mop, ranged with a broad flat surface, great for all wall crawlers!

This is bloody amazing. You really get a shadowy effect across way better than most people ever will.

Also, great: I have a fear of spiders now, too. =P
