The Art of Blender is full of inspiring renderings from Blender artists around the world.
In this Blender 2.5 tutorial course, I’ll show you how to create a large spider, in preparation for Halloween. We start by showing a good place to get reference images, then we begin modeling the spider from a Cylinder, pushing and pulling vertices and extruding until we get him in the shape we want. Then we add seams and jump in to start texture-painting. After we get the body painted up nicely, we add a second Material to the model, and apply it to the eyes.
