Lucas the Spider is a test character created by digital animator Joshua Slice for the purpose of working on his techniques. “I’m responsible for the design, modeling, rigging, animation, lighting, and rendering,” he says. Lucas’ form was inspired by jumping spiders and is voiced by Slice’s four-year-old nephew, also named Lucas. People are saying that Lucas is the cutest spider EVAR and is helping cure their arachnophobia. Folks are also asking Slice to expand Lucas into his own movie!
