The Spiders From Mars by nemo-ramjet The Spiders From Mars by nemo-ramjet
Although the first giant spiders evolved on Earth, they produced their most spectacular forms after being transplanted to Mars by Earth's second wave of intelligent species.

Impressive! After listening to the entire album "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars," I was wondering if anyone actually drew alien creatures named after the band.

You've done a fantastic job here combining realism with creativity. The creatures here look both authentically alien and incredibly detailed.

I am reminded of the 1986 cartoon series "Galaxy Rangers", wherein the insects and spiders that hitched a lift aboard colonial transports to Mars developed into gigantic, dog-sized animals, several of which were domesticated as pets.

A similar development occurred in "Doctor Who" on the planet Metebilis III, where a peculiar form of radiation from Metebilis crystals caused the spiders to evolve into sentient, man-sized Arachnids that enslaved the original Human colonists.

Questions
1)Just how big are they?
2)What is the second wave of Earth's intelligent species
3)What is that ferret like thing on the end of the lead fang?

I've probably already commented on this but I inexplicably come back to it constantly because it's such a great mix of idea and execution. Makes real spiders look drab in comparison.

Also do the pair of limbs in the air serve a purpose similar to a mantis' graspers or is this just for the sake of visual interest?
