Spider – added bits

A couple people suggested some markings on the spider – so I put a couple dabs of white on when I’d finished painting the stucco at the other end of the house…..

I’m guessing here at spider markings…

Then I thought I’d add some red to make it more feroceous-looking.

That’s it, I’m done!

Spider day 7

20spider1

I used my rusty knowledge of six legged things to come up with head, thorax, abdomen.  I was thinking of a straw colored spider.

21spider2

Then I went and did a bit of research – spiders don’t have a separate head and thorax, so there was a bit of a rework in order to make this anatomically correct.

22spider3

Then I realized I’d put the legs on the abdomen, not the thorax, so a bit of reworking again to make it correct.

23spider4

Fixed all the booboos and starting to work on the cast shadow.

24spider5

Shadows in and the eyes.  All I need now is the twinkle in those eyes.

25spider6

The full view.  And you can see I’ve also completed the maintenance on the edge of the roof.  Of course now Ken’s thinking I should add some markings to make it more dangerous looking.  Maybe.
