I don't think that is Jeff Dee's work. It looks more like Bill Willingham to me.View attachment 257206
I have to go with the compass mermaid from X1. (By Jeff Dee, I'm pretty sure.) Sure, Darlene's mermaid in the 1e DMG might be reclining in a more classically alluring pose; but this one? She is ready to slither up onto the deck of your ship and mess your effing crap up with that trident. Half lady, half sea-serpent, all badass.
I do love this and it forever cemented my idea that giant spiders were furry jumping spiders rather than web-making sleek orb weavers.I remember being fascinated by this furry fellow when I was in middle school.

Nothing too out of the ordinary, just a spider much larger than the normal variety, but it kind of creeped me out knowing that party had no idea what they were about to get into. Sure, somebody in the back seems to have noticed it (he's pointing right at it), but it's already in its "attack" pose and well within pouncing range.
