Modelled and animated by Torsten Schneyer, Anders und Seim neue Medien AG.
This is a high detailed and photorealistic model of a garden- or diadem spider, Areneus diadematus.
This professional modelled mesh has only 4888 polygons and 5636 vertices. However it is adequate for closeup renderings. This model is anatomical correct, no fantasy stuff was added.
The bristles (stiff hairs) are geometrical. If you like, you can add additional hair with some hair plugin.
The HiRes-textures are made of real garden spider photos and grant the model a realistic look. Each body part has the look of its real natural counterpart.
This mesh is a good choice, if you want to include some realistic looking spiders in your project.
The Spider is fully rigged and equipped with 56 bones, to grant usability for many animations. Each limb has the right number of joints.
The lws-file includes an example walking cicle (watch the avi-file below for a preview).
