By Lord of the Dish Pit
Continuing on what will hopefully be a Halloween Season painting binge, a Wizkids Phase Spider in the traditional Halloween colors of Orange, Black, Green and Purple...
Surprisingly the underside wasn't too difficult to get to considering it's attached to the base out of the blister.
I liked the naturalistic pose of it, and here we can see the magic that is Reaper's Coal Black adding a nice subdued greenish tint to the legs.
I don't know what release phase the spider was a part of, but I've had him for awhile. WizKids can be kind of hit or miss when it comes to the frustration level of painting them, but this one was easy to work with and there wasn't any missing or obscured detail, nor were the mold line too bothersome.
My 3rd encounter in the last month and I'll need to slow down a bit.
Main Bones 5 WIP
The spiders were influenced by real spider types. The big black one was painted like the little red and blue one, Opadometa sarawakensis, but it was too distracting, so the color is on the underside. See p7 of WIP for more. The blue fuzzies ( Poecilotheria metallica) are tarantulas - adult and juvenile, so the small one is intentionally less bright.
More pics later
Painting got interrupted by basement flooding... and show off pics got got interrupted by more flooding... I will have a few more pics to add later from behind and under when I have a moment.
I may not do much more painting for a while though. WIP starts here. A few posts surrounding show some of my Bones 5 dry fits and will have other Bones 5 stuff in that thread ...whenever I can paint again.
