Widows Web 1 by ToolKitten
Widows Web 1
the new creator series by writers raven gregory and autumn ivy

this was a fun piece, i noticed after the fact that if i laid over the golden spiral it ends on the spider, fun to see that in action, because thats where your eye wants to go.

The Secret Life of Crows part 3 Ebas cover
drawn by eric basaldua :iconebas:
colored by me.

not much of a colorist nowwdays, most of you wont realize that i've gone completely rogue and started up my own little thing with tons of big plans, mostly to deliver a bunch of awesome stories drawn and colored by me with guest writers......some of which you guys actually know haha.

anyway, even fewer of you guys know about one of my great friends here, ebas. we have been working together for almost 9 years now.....lots and lots of projects and covers worked on together, and after all these years finally having a piece of his to literally call my own, on my own book, so amazing. So here it is :D

you cant get this version just yet, (2015), but you can get some of the more rare versions, including the nude variant at
