Davis Spider Update 5


An update on the Davis Graveyard Spider for SpiderFest 2010…let me just say that I “changed gears”…yes the pun is intended.




A week or so ago I posted some teaser photos of my spider and as the clues suggested it was going to be a steampunk skeleton spider.




My original concept was to make a mechanical body with skeletal legs and head and as sometimes happens the concept wasn’t working and it was time for plan B.


The biggest problem I was having were the head and body proportions plus I really didn’t care for the angle of the legs.


The deciding factor to change my direction was that the spider wasn’t creepy.


The Davis Graveyard is sort of a spooky elegance and the steampunk spider was going in an opposite direction.


So here’s the new spider complete with a  big bulbous body, a skull like head and eight large removable legs to accommodate shipping and storage.



There is still a fair amount of work to be done but I like the direction and think he now has a creep factor worthy of his destination.


I hope they like him.
