Ding Ding Ding!!! Round 2!
Ooooohhhh!!! This just got REAL!
About this creation
Alright, Ranger! Feast your eyes on THIS!
When someone tells me to build a giant spider, I make a giant spider!
From now on, this is going to be my picture-taking environment; Freeling, I hope you don't take points off for the little bits of wall on the sides of the pictures. I didn't have a large enough posterboard to take adequitely-sized photos.

SO, WITHOUT FURTHER ADOOOOO......
FRODO!!! Get of him, you little .... you little... thing!
Rather intimidating.... Don't want to get on THAT thing's naughty list!
The set without the figs... When you see it, you'll poop bricks. :P
Ha! You found me! Sorry, I couldn't resist... Power Miners has been my favorite theme ever since it came out, and when I thought of how EMPTY this build was without it, how could I say no?
AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! These are the custom figs I made especially for this contest. I have NEVER bought a LOTR set, so I don't have the real figs, of the Ring for that matter. But I did what I could with what I have, and that's what counts!!
WHAT!?!?!?!?! HE DOESN'T KNOW ABOUT SECOND BREAKFAST!?!?!?
(Personally my favorite line in the movie :P )
Now THAT'S a face only a mother could love... And one of the hardest faces I've ever had to make! The eyes just WOULDN'T GO WHERE THEY HAD TO! O-o
OM NOM NOM!!!!
Just for a size comparison... Remember, he has SHORT legs, not normal ones!
THAT'S ALL FOLKS!
PS. Freeling, I officially forgive you for forgeting about me. Don't worry about it... But I do have one question: Is there any prize for winning the contest?
Just thought I'd give you a few helpful comments on this! I really like that you've constructed an irregular base; it gives it a more natural feel. The overall rough texture is good, too. Shelob is pretty well done, and I think original enough to be differentiated from the official set. The main problem, though, is that spiders have 8 legs, not just 6! :) I'm not crazy about the figs, but I realize that not everyone has the official ones (though I highly recommend them; the sets are awesome!). So overall, you have lot of good things going for you, but a few things you could improve on, too.
Well, this is very good! Your build could be a little better, but I love your Shelob, the only thing I do not like are your minifigures, I realize you do not have the official ones but I think there are things you could have done much better with them.
