First things first… I must apologize for not posting about Deadspiders site long ago. My head must be so far into creation land that I could not see clearly. :::bows::: Me apologies Angie and good spooky vibes are still being sent your way in getting your health reigned in.
Deadspider is another prop/dark artist that I have admired from a distance. Most of us Home Haunters and fledgling dark artists tend to lurk in the shadows of the artists that inspire us. We watch, immitate, criticize our own work because it doesn’t compare to theirs, then we start to blossom. We slowly realize it isn’t about having our art look exactly like someone else’s but about finding ourselves in our own art. We never forget who inspires us though, even if we forget to thank them, and most of all we keep watching. Think of it like never forgetting your first grade teacher that you had the crush on.
Now Deadspider, beyond being utterly imaginative with a jar and a label, she is also an incredible prop artist. The first prop that I saw of hers was the Halloween Tree then there was the Winged Demons which I still want to create a version of. The one prop that got me creating was Mr. Hemlock Dench. I actually created a prop that I named Morimal Von Hearsestein, and still use in the cemetery haunt, that was inspired totally by Mr Dench.
Treat yourself and check out her sites, it’s no trick!
Here are a few pictures that were mentioned:
