My 2nd entry for the 9 Creature Contest:
(Style: Gothic Horror)(See 1st Contest Entry Here: Brain Storm)(See 3rd Contest Entry Here: Steampunk Monkey)(See 4th Contest Entry Here: THE SOUL STEALER)The "Barbed Widow" is a dreadful mechanical arachnid, brandishing razor sharp scissor legs and fangs who lies in wait in a menacing web of barbed wire.
In a cruel twist of fate, 9's small soul-spark talisman has landed in the Widow's lair. Now, he has no choice but to do battle with this vile and nightmarish beast.
Tools & inspirations:
Photo-manipulation using PS CS4 and over a dozen images.
Found objects: scissors, winch, coffee can, wire cutters, baby doll head, letter opener.
