Theres A Spider On Your Tongue by boblea Theres A Spider On Your Tongue by boblea
This is one of the first 3D illustrations I ever did, created a long time ago in the year 2000. I had no idea what I was doing back then and only had very basic software. It took me weeks to finish!

It was for the cover of a book called Deadly by Morris Gleitzman and Paul Jennings.

Please respect my copyright, thanks.

In fact I've just finished doing a load for them and I was working through the night and sleeping during the day and I became Australian! I DID!

I love the irony. They're worried about the spider, not all the other bugs! I think Id be worried about the spider!

spider spider spider spider spider!!!!!!
+__+ I do not like spiders at all. I walked up the stairs today and looked to the side to see a big one at about eye level with me on the wall.
I freaked an ran up the stairs and everyone came running.

I'm a bit like that with big moths. One night there was this huge moth in mah bedroom, it was as big as an open paperback and I could see its evil furry face! It flew around for a bit and then crawled into mah jeans' pocket. Luckily it was gone in the morning. :faint:

AND INTERESTING TO TRY AND COUNT THEM AND BE ALL ":O THERE'S ANOTHER ONE I DIDN'T SEE BEFORE! *rolls eyes*"

I think, that you should go to next year's comic con, and take some prints and and and do sketches! :D

I can understand that. I myself am particularly nervous of big moths whether real or otherwise.

Haha! Stop counting them Amy! lol

D: We have a big window, so moths come in all the time! Do you have to catch them in HUGE bowls, cause you're so scared? D:

Okay! I wasn't having much success anyways.

I'll interpret that as "Oh, you do, do you?" and respond with a yes. :)

boblea Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2009
No, I used to get Colleen to catch them with her hands, she doesn't mind them at all! I'm much better with them these days and I can catch them too ^_^

You could have sent yourself mad counting them thar bugs!

I've been leaving whole words out of sentences lately, you interpreted it totally 100% correctly. But I'm not much of a joiner-inner so I probably wouldn't go. I'm quite shy rilly. :)

You made your wife catch moths? You big pansy! *rolls eyes*

I can't imagine how much more mad it drove you toning and all that jazz for EVERY bug. :O

You're going senile, Bibbity. :) Aw, a loner too? D: Them places can get preeeetty scary unless someone joins in with you. :)

She likes catching moths! I'm only talking about the huge moths with a face and pugnacious personality. I catch them mahself these days so nuh! Anyways I've saved Colleen from other things like a rampaging ram for example. Ah am brave! *looks brave*

It was terrible I tell you, terrible! It did send me mad :eyepopping: quite lidderally.

I've gone senile and come back again :) Yip, you a loner? Them places make me panic :O

Lol, that's a mighty spider 0_0
if I was in her position i'd probably run around screaming fire before dipping myself in bleach.
which is, as we all know, the #1 way to remove a spider from your mouth!

Ahahaha! And then you'd be all bleachy white and you'd have to be dipped in dye to get some colour back. How do you feel about tie-die? ^_^

I believe that tie-die is extremely retro and seriously under-valued in this day and age CB

Thanks Marina. I'd spend all day posing, texturing and rendering each bug one at a time and then comping them into photoshop. Then I'd look up and see I'd done just enough to cover one arm! :bow:

yes there is. theres plenty room inside me. seriously. there was a spider in our bathroom last night. i called my mom and told her to remove it from me and she did. she took a piece of toilet paper and mashed the ghastly lil creature and then as she was walking the two steps it took her to get to the sink with bin underneath it she accidentally made a move with her hand so that mashed spider in the toilet paper got pretty close to my face... i really didnt mean to but i freaked and pushed her arm away. i cant help it. i panick if a spider gets close to me. even when its dead. and she used to scare me with the mashed ones in the paper when i was younger. tried to get me over my arachnophobia. (note to parents worldwide: it only makes things worse)
