About the MOC Anansi is a small(literally) build I did while waiting for parts to arrive and not wanting to get too ambitious with a project. The name Anansi comes from West African Folklore making this particular spider male(poor little guy). In the world of spiders that sucks for him. Good thing he's currently the only spider in my collection, but I'll feel really bad for him if Arachne ever comes back around. Interesting fact, females are the dominant sex in the spider order and females often feast on the males after mating.
I like how I got a Crab when I tried making a spider, and got a spider when I tried remaking an ant. I guess that means I should try and make another crab to get an ant? After building Snip by using the Natalie Breez mask I wanted to continue the theme which is what lead to the incorporation of the Furno 2.0 skull top and his XL counterpart's mask. This use of HF masks as body parts may turn into a series for me. I certainly would like to keep using these fairly unusable masks in interesting ways.
Here's some spider icons just because there's no actual bio for this little dude, he's just a kinda cartoony, kinda creepy, kinda cute spider.
I don't actually, I think there's generally nothing pleasant or friendly about spiders and generally am creeped the hell out by them.Again I'll have to disagree
Gah, I'm creeped out by them too. Okay, First off, the legs are very... Arachnid-like. Very flexible and sturdy, but also very thin. I'd like to say that you stayed true to the body style of a spider. And to be honest, I find this a very good Mini-MOC. The detail on the masks give it a Black-Widow kinda feel.
Okay, now the only thing I don't like are the eyes. They seem a little too big to Anansi's relative body size.
And I totally agree that spiders are scary.
But, it seems very original, you've got a good technique, and It's creeping me out as I type this, so five stars on impact!
As a side note, Anansi's my favorite of your Mini-MOCs. Keep it up, Dave!
Thanks Dennis. Yeah it sucks you've been so busy. Hope things lighten up for you and we can chat more. I miss showing you sneak peaks and watching you lose your mind on skype. HAHAH The time I showed you Gweeb was priceless. And freaking you out with Kutumah is always funny. I've been posting links to my MOCs on facebook to. I'll keep that up if that helps.
Yeah, and that's why I felt bad about getting on your case about it.
I dunno man, I'm not in your shoes, so I don't know, but I think it comes down to boundaries. If you let things invade every aspect of your life and shut things out it will. You do your job and you do it well, but you're a legitimate workaholic. People like to use that word playfully and give it kind of a good connotation, but in actuality it can be like anything else, letting something consume and control your life is bad. Its like when you quit. You put up a boundary and gave yourself time to think on it all, which ultimately worked out to your benefit. But maybe you need to keep a few boundaries and keep things in check, just for the sake of your personal sanity. If somebody invades your personal space what do you do, you put your hand out and tell em to take a step back.
Hehe a workaholic, never before would I have considered myself to be one xD. but I guess you're right. But it's not so much with my job. Lately I just fail at sitting still and idle for some time. I want to keep busy. If I don't have any work, I continue to move my shit out the house and to my appartment, if I don't have anything to move or just can't do so that day, I'm working out at the gym. I just don't take a lot of time for social meetings and skype and all that. Skype would be a big problem right now considering I don't have internet at my place until 3rd week of July. Kind of makes me realize why I spend so much time at work xD.
Ahhh I see. I gotcha. So job isn't creeping in, you're just keeping yourself occupied with a lot of things. Well I know you've heard me say I'm jealous. I have so much time on my hands and nothing to do it drives me nuts. Its ironic, I've got nothing but time on my hands and that creates a situation where I've got no money either, meaning I can't utilize that time to its potential. When I change the situation to where I have money, I won't have the time(or as much). Kinda ironic how neither lends themselves to the other. Oh well, not like the situation is gonna change for me any time soon. Complaining about it doesn't do anygood, just gotta wait this out I suppose.
