am I the only one?
« on: November 29, 2014, 12:30:17 AM »
am I the only one that DESPERATELY wants to see arachnids drawn in human forms and portrayed with the arachnid's individual personalities? for example, a tiny jumping spider would be an adorable little person, an orb weaver would be an artist, a solofugid would be a yandere, and a scorpion would be a shy girl that lashes out when scared.

I've seen this done with just about everything else, ponies, cars, ships, countries.

And ive even seen ponies turned to spiders.

I think it would take someone that likes arachnids enough to recognize their personalities.

And someone that can draw well.  (I totally agree with the jumping spider characterization.  Not many invertebrates can make me squee, but those do.

Interesting idea :)

Some time ago, I had a similar idea: a superhero story where all major characters would be based on some animal. The hero was the Black Rat, a martial artist. One of his villains would be an stealthy, acrobatic industrial saboteur inspired by a chinchilla. There would be a police detective character with a personality based on cats. And so on...

Anyway, good luck with the drawings :)

Nephila Clavata has always been my favorite spider species. It's part of the golden orb-web spider group, also known as the Joro Spider and Queen of the Arachnids for the folklore around it (Jorogumo, the Japanese spider woman). I think they are so beautiful. I suppose they already have humanoid drawings of them though from the folklores.

Peacock Spiders are adorable. They raise this colored part of their body and dance. They are super tiny too.

I had a spider demoness who had a solifugid as a pet. She went into great detail tearing someone apart for calling it a spider (cause all spiders are arachnids, but not all arachnids are spiders). It was a cute scene. ^^

I already knew that, hence saying "I want to see ARACHNIDS as humans" not "Spiders"

That'd work seeing as Daddy Long Legs aren't spiders. :3
