Tarantulas colours by Blitz-Wing Tarantulas colours by Blitz-Wing
took a little longer then I wanted since the black was looking really dull when I wanted a gloss look so I spent an age just f**king around with all sorts of highlights

There is something almost The Fallen-like about this design, with some Vok influence tossed in as well. It's simply wonderful.

Totally digging this rendition of Tarantulas. As a matter of fact I've enjoyed looking through alot of your work. Your style is very refreshing to see in comparison to what IDW has been doing lately.

Looks awesome. He's easily one of my favorite designs. But, what's that he's holding?

Okay. It was cool looking, but I didn't recognize it as anything from the show, and I was wondering if I should have.

its and awesome picture but why did you give him a melee weapon? tarantulas was never proficient with any weapons in general except his badass rotar blade gun

its just something I liked the look of and the blade is close in shape to his old misslie the toy had

Nice transmetal version painting. If Tarantulas looked like that in the original Beast Wars, he'd probably be my favorite...though he looks more like he depends on brawn over brain lol

Wow. He has kind of a priestly look. Reminds me a bit of Warhammer 40k, actually.

I guess he might have some Eldar or Necron stuff to him but its a stretch

Well, I was thinking more Imperial, really. That weapon looks like something the Sisters of Battle use, I guess because they're both based on one of those things, I forget what they're called, that they use in church. Also the spider legs remind me of the tool arms used by the Techpriests & other Adeptus Mechanicus units.

He does have kind of a Necron thing going on, too, though. Must be all the green & black.

Very cool. I like the modification you did to his design, although I always liked his Transmetal form, it was such an improvement over his dumpy original form.

Nice job on this one. I have a soft spot for Tarantulas. He always seemed like the Soundwave for Beast Wars. But instead being loyal, he had other agendas.
But this was his coolest form by-far. And the coolest of the Transmetals as well as Waspinator (to me). Too bad Waspinator's Transmetal form never made it to the show. Wasp to jet as awesome!
Anyways, like everything about it!
