After some initial pieces I wanted to get more realistic shape-, color-, highlight- and shadow-wise. I started with some creepers.
Itsy Bitsy Spider
I like the way the shadow turned out here. It’s funny to see the stone go really dark with the extremely thinned down color and then rapidly drying up in the sun, leaving only a hint of gray.
Still this looks kinda empty. So I added some fleeing ants. Looking at that spider, if I were an ant, I’d probably run too!
The next one came out similar, it’s called “Lunch”, for the nasty spider has already something cooking in his yellow slime trap, as the last one was still hunting them ants.
With this spider stone I like the way I was able to incorporate the broken off and differently colored structure of the rock, making the spider really look as it it was hiding behind a rim for his tasty friends.
Everybody’s Favorite Pest
What’s a good assortment of creepers without a cockroach and a centipede? Nothing I guess, so here you go.
