Goodness am I bad at keeping this updated...
So I've always been a fan of what-ifs, reinterpretations, "Bizarro"/opposite versions, and the like, and after seeing Kreon "Warriors" and Thomas Perkins' stuff I got to doodling alter-versions of... Tarantulas for some reason. I dunno, guess I've always really like his design, and you don't really see much BW fan art which is a shame.
First up, as he might have looked in the 80s cartoon
He looks vaguely like Unicron, you say. Pffft, yeah right...
And Ninja Tarantulas
The Beast Wars cartoon portrayed Tarantulas as a treacherous, cannibalistic, mad scientist, but the toys sold him as a dull-witted ninja. So I went a little nuts with the idea. I was thinking he doesn't transform so much as he poofs into smoke and re-poofs as a spider (this IS supposed to be a weird parallel dimension Tarantulas, after all), although his limbs ended up looking like they could do a General Grievous-esque split to create 8 legs, maybe even each holding a kunai to complete the look.
More to come!
