Spider - witch by EmiliaPaw5 Spider - witch by EmiliaPaw5
A cover for the 'Gaining Velocity' book. The book consists of many artworks done by very talented South African artists. It was a pleasure to work on this. I have never attempted painting dark skin before and I have to say that I enjoyed it thoroughly. I think I will be painting more darker ladies in the future :)

Description:
The Witch/Aunty Nancy/ANANSI
The witch in spider form - a human/hybrid spider creature. Something that looks terrifying. The witch has the ability to shape shift into a spider form, but instead of her going all the way, she is a mix of human and spider.

She also has the sub-power of splitting her consciousness into hundred of tiny little poisonous spiders - when she does that transformation it will look like the human version of her implodes and scatters over the area in a dense carpet of red and black terror.

The cat's name is Bastet, he is the witch's helper.

Can't wait for this book to come out! :iconcheerplz:

Very cool work!  That face, the eyes, those fingernails... wow, this is both creepy and sexy!  I like it!  :D

(and I agree with G-Boney that she does kinda resemble Zoe Saldana)
