Method Actress by phantom-inker Method Actress by phantom-inker
When most people had heard that there was a sequel coming, they groaned. The last movie had been a box-office bomb... but then rumor began circulating that Roxy was going to star. Roxy, so-famous-she-only-needed-one-name Roxy. She was the best actress of her generation, a genius whose brilliance hadn't been matched in years, and beautiful to boot, and if anybody could pull the franchise out of the trash, she was the one.

But then she began making odd demands, changes in the story, and she hired a bunch of weird occult people on the studio's dime, and there were strange lights coming from her hillside mansion every night. When she finally walked onto the set that fateful day, the director swallowed hard as one of the producers passed out: Maybe asking Roxy to play Spider-Girl wasn't such a good idea after all.


Well, after nearly a year, this is finally done, and it turned out pretty darn well, even without a complex background. Roxy came out lookin' pretty hot, I think, and her pose speaks for itself.

I have no idea really how many hours went into this. I worked on it an hour here and an hour there, and it's probably in the 50-ish or 60-ish range at least. As always, it's entirely done in CorelDRAW with a mouse.

This is dedicated to my friend Anne, who loved the early rough versions of this. Anne recently dislocated her elbow (I didn't even know that was possible!) and has had weeks of physical therapy to recover from it. Here's hoping you feel better, Anne!

I get the song "Roxy Hart" stuck in my head every single time I see this picture >.>

This is available as a print, and to show some of the detail in the print, here's a closeup of Roxy's face.

Spider or no, she's drop-dead GORGEOUS! (suddenly, I'm not quite as afraid of spiders anymore...)

Sorry for commenting on old deviation, but I feel I have to!! Amazingly well done and amazingly good idea! :woohoo:
Fantastic! :heart::heart::heart:

The concept of a method actress who literally becomes her role is pretty cool... and it helps that she's cute too :)
evotherian Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2011
I think she has the best face of all your work, and her hands are good too.
silvio-nascimento Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2011
It gives a whole new meaning to 'the kiss of the spider woman'.... [BTW, if you guys do not know, its a title of a movie...]
SSGuy Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011
Would you consider drawing more of this character? She looks really well done! :]
Marscaleb Featured By Owner May 16, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I would so pay money to see this movie.
randomguy1001 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2011
This is probably the best drider on DA. The blend between girl and spider is flawless.
evilforkdude Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2010   Digital Artist
Dang... I love the shading, and the fact that she's literally a spider-girl. :D
phantom-inker Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Glad you like it! :)
MidnightMinion Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2010
Awesome picture! I wonder if we'll be seeing more of this girl at some point in the future... ?
Anellyz Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2009

phantom-inker Featured By Owner May 7, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist

gamera1985 Featured By Owner May 2, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
was wating impatiently that you finish it, and have to say you did a really nice job. Nice pose, finition and shading.

Plus her story is quite goofy and nice, which i like a lot. =D

Give me the will to draw more spider-girls
phantom-inker Featured By Owner May 9, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks! I love your artwork, and I'm glad you feel inspired by this — I'll be looking forward to seeing you draw more spider-girls! :D
gamera1985 Featured By Owner May 9, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hehehe, I'll try ;)

By any chance, are you interested by an art trade?
phantom-inker Featured By Owner May 10, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't know what I'd draw, but if I'd be willing to trade with anyone, you and Access would both be very high on my list. Note me and maybe we can talk about something; I have a lot of stuff in the queue ahead of it, but I sure don't want to turn down your art!
tandokuno-ookami Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2009  Student
I really like how you were able to put a human body and arachnid together like that, it's pretty wicked.
ivucica Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2009
AWESOME!!! She came out just perfectly. I loved Spider-Girl comic. Also, never imagined how good would a drider come out in Spider-costume.
Paruser Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2009
Drider Girl,
Drider Girl,
Does whatever
The Hell she wants.
Keimori Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wow, i can't imagine how the rest of the crew felt, i proboly faint too, though i'm not 100% sure what from.
Feddick Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009
Cool pic. Very cool concept. How about some spider girl in action stuff. Very cool
parasiteparasite Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009
lovely lady, too bad I cant save the image to my personal collection, it looks really nice!

phantom-inker Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can't? *puzzles*
parasiteparasite Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009
no, there are some images here that pop up as "blank" in the file-name field on my computer, and thats what they are...blank. So I can only look at them in here, but I cant download them. I dont know why that is, or what I perhaps do wrong. Typicly most of the images I like the most are just like that...

Kaze-Youko Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009
Looks great. Glad to see that you decided to finish it. =)
qwertypictures Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is the strangest thing: this deviation came up alongside another Spider-Woman related piece in my watch list! 8-)

Looks very, very good to say the least. Definitely worth the year's wait just to see this :)
Rogue7 Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2009
Magnificent job
Agent505 Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2009  Professional Writer
Spider girl, spider girl... does everything a girl and a spider can do...

Can you imagine her swinging between New York skyscrapers? If that wouldn't stop traffic I don't know what would.

Excellent job!

This one came out amazing dude :D great job
ericnthered123 Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2009
Awesome work! Like what you did with Spider 'man' idea. :D

And hope your friend feels better.
Xweetara Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2009
This is seriously awesome. =D Also, I really love how you have a mini-story to go with each picture. I love reading them! ^^
Pwesty Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2009
I really like this idea, one of your best yet! But what I would really like to see is spiderwoman(the red one) do up like this one.
