Painted as a commission June 2003
This figure is just huge! I had no idea how big it was until I actually held it in my hand. I could see right away that none of my bases were big enough, so I based it on a CD instead.
Since a drider is a drow creature, the colour scheme was pretty much decided when I started painting. My customer was kind enough to send me some yucky pics of spiders for inspiration. That's where I got the pattern. He was quite a fun figure to paint. Lots of drybrushing for the body and careful blending on the black skin. I'm pretty happy with the NMM. It gives a nice contrast to the dark skin.
