Finally. Done.
You wouldn't believe how long it took me to finish this goddamn drawing. I didn't count the hours but I know it took veeery long! And despite the time it took, I'm not satisfied.
It might be the first time I try something this complicated and clearly this was waayyy beyond my drawing ability. Several light sources in a closed space? Am I NUTS?
Anyways, here's a reading Mederic in his natural habitat for you. He uses lots of lamps and candles to light up his dark house bus.
Hope you like it (better than I do)!


Also still have troubles with titles lel

I see I'm not the only one who has given thought to the idea of "sub-terrain-bus-house", as I like to refer to it. X3

Cool idea! First of all, so many light sources and it still looks very accurate and good! Great job! 
The atmosphere is also very good. It is underground, but it still looks very cozy and comfortable. I also like that it is cute and disgusting at the same time.
But I really don't like spiders, even though this spider is probably very nice, I would just run away^^

Thanks a lot! I wanted it to look cozy, I'm really glad you noticed! ^.^
Yes spiders are such weird little things, so I really can't blame you xD That's all what I wanted to create : and endearing character from a fearsome creature.. It's a lot of fun! 8)

I actually think you've done really well with the light sources. I really like that little hole at the top of the bus with the little beam of light going down. Although I don't think it would highlight the bunny that much, even with some of the light from the lamp being thrown on him.  I really like that added detail of the light at the top of the window where we can see the edge of the grass and some of the sunlight coming in. I think for the most part the way you show the light looks pretty realistic. 

One issue in terms of the design of the bug man is that, if you were just looking at him from the neck down, he just looks like a black man. I don't know if that was the intention but it looks more like a man with dark skin that than the color of a spider or ant.

Thank you for your comment! I'm happy you like my lighting, I did my best but I still have a lot of room for improvement^^ As you said the bunny shouldn't be that highlighted, I didn't see that detail on the first glance!
Ah yes, I see what you mean for the skin color! I actually based my colors on the species of spider he's a hybrid from : the segestria florentinas. The colors seem okay on the ref sheet (you can find it here if you want^^ Mederic Ref Sheet), maybe the lighting is making it appear browner than he really is? Or maybe should I have make him more grey.. I'll think about that and make some tests I think!
Thanks a lot for your helping comment! :)

When I saw the sheet of him naked it looked less human. You'll need to play with it.

I have some sketches of him playing with shadows, looking human with clothes on one side and looking more scary on the shadow side, with his spider legs and all.. I'm exploring the possibilities^^

The time you took drawing this really shows. I agree you might have been a little insane in trying out multiple light sources in a closed space, but what isn't tried won't work, correct? Don't sweat it, you did a fantastic job. Creating a lax atmosphere like this in an underground bus is truly unique. There has to be a story behind this, I'm sure. Also, the way everything looks proportionate really helps. This is great.
