My worst nightmare is of a killerwhale jumping over a local bridge, so that was a bit hard to recreate... I really wanted to enter this challenge, but I didn't know with what. Then I found this green spider that asked me if he could model for me, and I said yes! Now we're anxious to see the scores. Could be good, could be bad, my guess is that it will be another one around 5.

Not quite detailed enough to be truly a fright filled terror, but the intent is there and in some ways can be viewed as very effective.

Well, I happen to love spiders, but then we don't have poisened ones where I live. But for some even the tiniest one could arouse a nightmare.
