Default Funnel Web Spider

Hi everyone,
I'm a newbie to the Simply Maya forums. I thought I would start posting finished and unfinished work.

Here is a Funnel Web Spider I rendered a while back.

Modeling - Maya/Zbrush
Texturing - Zbrush(polypaint)/Photoshop
Rendering - Mental Ray

Those are lovely renders, well done. How did you create the web strands? Or are those photo backplates?

Default SpiderWeb Silk

Hi Stwert..

I did it the easy way - relatively.

I used this tool (http://weavesilk.com), to create textures (with a little bit of Photoshop layering etc):

1. An alpha (cutout opacity), (red image = Phoptoshop alpha)
2. Translucency
3. Spec (added a ridiculous amount of noise)
4. Normal Map - (noisy, overly sharpened image taken into "crazy Bump" for export)

So it is a 3D effect but nothing special. It works though.

Some textures used:
