Have to say these are quite old school but you did a fantastic job at capturing the essence of their teleporting. I remeber these guys in Icewind Dale, they were great at porting right behind the weakest group member :P Thanks for sharing

These guys are old school, they were in the original Monster manual form the late 70s, just my spin on an old monster:)

what do phase spiders do? do they have some kind of special ability? like teleporting or something? (just assuming from the name. ^^;)

Yeah these guys teleport, they are a classic D&D monster.

I ran into one of these little devils in The Tomb of Horrors. It was a difficult battle.

This wonderful picture really brings back some memories. I love it!

Reminds me of one of the old Mighty Max episodes (still my favorite cartoon) I like the glossy reflective look of their eyes, very insect/arachnid ish

Chilling... the spiders look very realistic! I love the shape of the picture, and how everything fades into the darkness. Really cool lighting!

Huge thanks, I like to get 'real' into creature design I think it helps to make them more believable and therefore scarier.

Fanks dude, that it is nice to get something more into a spider than the 8 legs and the creep factor.
