    October 17: How long is you hair?

    I like the gill slits on the sides of the ribs. Perfect placement for them in a humanoid. Usually artists put them on the neck, which when you think about makes little sense. This way the water passes through what in humans is the lung cavity, but in these would be modified to gills and exits on their sides. Nice design element.

    <MOD> Hey guys, I know these are very sexy sculpts, but lets keep the innuendo to a minimum, please. Posts hidden. </MOD>

    Crowds/Confinement. I have OCD, and crowds really trigger it. If a crowd gets too close and I have no way out, I get somewhat irrational. I tend to avoid really crowded situations like the state fair or Christmas mall shopping. This carries over to other situations where I have no immediate control over my situation or obvious escape route, such as escape room games and MRIs that lock my head in place. Airplanes get close to triggering me, but looking out the window typically stops it.

    Christine is crazy fast, even by digital standards.

    October 15: Have you any phobias? (This question inspired by various reactions to a certain spider being unlocked right now.)

    I'm pretty sure that that is why Ron wanted this one to work with no base; it was part of the parameters I was given. As long as the dog house has internet, electricity, and snacks, I'm good.

    Yes, you can reuse it. Warm it up a bit and it becomes soft and can be reworked.

    October 14: Do you remember names well after meeting people, and if so, do you have a method for memory you can share?

    She’s free standing, with no base attachment at all. She has 5 contact points: 4 legs and her abdomen just touches the ground.

    I have the cave spider, its about half the size this one will be maybe less. I have to double check, but I’m pretty sure the abdomen alone will be 2 to 2.5 inches in diameter. Total length of the body from fangs to bum should be around 4 in. Maybe a bit more. I’ll check the measurements tomorrow. As for the Shelob references, ...I mean it’s not like I’ve read LOTR 17 times or anything.. Not sure on the Shelob vs Ungoliant question, Tolkien wasn’t always clear on size. @Loim is a better Silmarillion scholar than I. I’m glad you all are liking her. Sorry to the arachnophobes. Gotta give a lot of credit to Ron though, he really pushed me to be better with this one than I would have done alone.

    Yes digital, I have only just this week been allowed to try hand sculpting again. My physical therapist would kill me if I took it too fast. No, hints are Ron’s job. and back on topic: Typically, I eat three scrambled eggs with spinach for breakfast. On weekends, I add cheese.

    not that big. I don’t do Si Fi much.

    Thanks @Corsair! You are absolutely right TGP. I ended up taking yesterday off work at the last minute to give me time to sculpt and finish re-grouting our shower. Ended up totally forgetting this page as I laser-focused in on the sculpt that I had to get to Ron today. I also sprained my ankle waging war on the local squirrels, so I'd say they are winning. Been an eventful couple of days. Sorry for messing up here. That said, I am super stoked for you all to see what I have been working on; hands down, the biggest thing I have ever sculpted. Might even be revealed as soon as the next one.
