Green jumping spider

Post by dakiru » Mon Jun 21, 2010 11:41 pm

Hi, guys!

I was inspired by the photo of green jumping spider and wanted to reconstruct it (and to save the mood of the picture). Here is the reference photo:
green_jumping_spider_closeup_by_troypiggo.jpg
And here are the renders with different tonemapping:
spidy.jpg
spidy2.jpg
spidy3.jpg
spidy4.jpg
Modelled in Blender 2.49b and Sculptris 1.01, scene setup and rigging made in Blender, rendered with Indigo 2.4.4 (MLT+BiDir) for 16 hours. But I have to tell, that after 4 hours it was completely done.

Critics are welcome!

You've done a wonderful job, the renders are extremely close to the original. Highly photo realistic work!

Hi, dakiru!
May I contribute some biology correctness to your reconstruction :wink:
(I am very close relative to a biology student, so I am sort of informed)
The spider is missing a mouth (this brown stuff that hidden behind its jaws in front of its head).
Its jaws should be bigger (they are for grabbing and holding the prey).
I am not 100% sure, but these red dots on his head and his green-yellowish color indicate that it's juvenile spider in late summer or autumn, and its color is a camouflage towards predators (like birds) or its prey, and is adaptive to environment (background):
http://www.european-arachnology.org/pro ... 8_Holl.pdf
So the color difference between him an the leaf shouldn't be too big (like in the photo).
This red dots are just different pigment on its skin.
Its head in the render looks like it has some different stuff inside,less liquid than in the photo.
Its body in the photo looks less "hairy".
I am telling you all this stuff only because its reconstruction of the real photo,(and I probably have some kind of obsessive-compulsive disorder, since stuff like this bother me :) )

Hi, Dakiru. What a beautiful pics!, I like insects (and other "small people") macro-photograph very much, and I say to you that your spider pics are a great achievement. Reality correctness aside, this little green spider seems alive.

Yes, since it is such a nice and impressive (especially for me) work, I just wanted it to be even better! Otherwise i wouldn't comment at all.

Than you very much for your comments, guys - definitely a motivation to make even better pictures! :D

@drosophila: Thank a lot for this info. Since my biology knowledge is quite weak, I missed those details :oops: Now, what will be easier to change is the size of the claws, less hairy look and spider's material. Problem with the material is, that when I make it more transparent, the legs of the spider become almost fully transparent. It seems, like the legs of the spider on the photo scatter more light than it's head. I'll try to fix these issues and post the changes in the next set of renders. :)

Hi,dakiru.

The head and the legs of a spider are made of the same materials.
Its "skin" (exoskeleton) is colorless polymer (chitin) made of microfibres, which are laid down in four different layers with the fibres in each layer having a slightly different orientation. Below this is the layer of sells with different pigment (color).
Inside of the spider body is some kind of fluid. The internal organs are bathed in this fluid, but we can’t see them.
Spiders have hydraulic system instead of muscles. If its head is punched, it can't extend its legs.

(Taken from:
http://www.earthlife.net/chelicerata/s-anatomy.html)

It looks like a semi-transparent rubber or some kind of plastic shell, colored only from inside, filled with fluid.

What kind of materials would you use for this?
