Correct me if I'm wrong, but I haven't seen Aaron draw such a detailed spider before. It's almost sporting a shield or a piece of armor or something. And that tail is looking reptilian, reminds me of the helmeted bird in the elusive Generica sticker. Can't wait until we see progress shots of the painting!

A lot of the birds have that tail (Croatoan, WBG, AB2012, EoD). Get it together, newb :roll: :P .

Quoting myself to add that I do wonder if there's a significance to the fact that some have a regular bird tail and some have the reptile one. :?
