Guul Draz Vampire by SteveArgyle Guul Draz Vampire by SteveArgyle
The spider abstractions are so abound in this particular peice as to seriously call into question my capacity for an original thought.

Usually, when I'm stuck creatively, I go to the least likely corners of nature for inspiration. Monsters? Hmm... I'll look at some flowers. Angels? I think I'll look up "deep sea monstrosities." Samurai? I'll Google platypus.

That way, I don't quite as often end up with a concept that's been done to death. Even if I am wantonly plagarizing Mother Natures acid-trip inventions.

That's today's lesson to aspiring creatives out there.

On this particular peice, even though they're not so far from typical vampire lore, spiders took over my brainmeats.

Turned out alright though, no?
