Mr. Raya by Blairaptor Mr. Raya by Blairaptor
This is one the suspects in the comic I'm developing, Elementary!. He doesn't have a first name yet, but he's a lonely Costa Rican zebra tarantula. He's generally nervous in his mannerisms and works as a gardener on the edge of town.

Reference: www.cs.oswego.edu/~schofield/o…
I wanted to give him six arms so he'd truly have eight limbs, but that's time-consuming to draw and too crowding for a comic. And besides, it's hard enough to pose four arms on one character.

Ah, thanks! He was fun to design so it's a shame I dropped this comic idea. Maybe one day I'll bring it back so this cutie spider can shine. XD

You totally should! I really love his design though, it makes me feel less afraid of spiders haha. He would make a good budsie I think :)

This guy is so cute! I always like to see nice characters from animals that are usually thought of as scary.

oh my ah, he's so cute, precious baby, somewhat reminds me of blathers from animal crossing ;u;


Also, that desing is interesting, i usually do spiders with four arms and four legs, or two arms and six legs ouo

Aha, I need to make a snake character for this story next, then! C:<

Thanks - you're right, he does look like Blathers! I imagine he talks a lot to and stumbles over his words often. XD

I thought four legs would be too strange but then six arms was too crowded... I wish he could have eight limbs but it just doesn't work for me. :c
