Hey hey tumblr’s working again so I can post this
Sally is a humanoid creature based off of the Salticidae family of spiders, more commonly called jumping spiders. I tried to make her more like a spider than a human, so she’s a little weird with the biology side of things… For instance, she breathes from the slits on her abdomen, and thus is completely mute. However she does have a diaphragm, a complex heart, and is endothermic; which are pretty important for an organism her size.
She can also jump over most buildings with ease and take down an ox with her venom! Luckily she’s rather shy and won’t bite people unless they’re trying to kill her or something.
Normally she hangs out like a hobo in some unpopulated area of land where there is a steady supply of small animals, but occasionally she is forced to moved. She dreads going out in public because it’s difficult for her to breathe under her skirt and clothes flatten the delicate little hairs she uses to sense vibrations (hear).
Also because there’s the chance of social interaction and people don’t know how to deal with a mute, half deaf person with weird bulges under her sweater. She wears a button declaring her inability to speak in the vain hope that no one will attempt to talk to her.
it’s not my personal style of design, if i were to make a spider character i’d do it a bit differently but the lower sketches are cute and i like the concept :>
