Meet Lucas, the cutest spider you will ever see! If you’re afraid of spiders, fear not, because Lucas is here to get rid of the stigma that surrounds spiders. It turns out they’re not scary after all, as shown in this adorable animation.
Animator Joshua Slice put together this short film about a baby spider called Lucas, and the result is enough to rival giant companies such as Pixar. What makes the animation even cuter is the fact that Joshua asked his nephew Lucas to do the voice acting.
This is an animation test of a character I’ve been working on. I’m responsible for the design, modelling, rigging, animation, lighting and rendering.
Lucas the baby spider scuttles across the screen and introduces himself, declaring he has “too many eyeballs” before spotting his spider web and running back to it. The scene is super short but super cute!
People around the world are now calling for a feature length film of Lucas’ adventures and some have even gone as far as to come up with a plot and arrange the casting. I have to say, it’s a film I would definitely watch!
The super short scene is reminiscent of Pixar’s short films and the company should scoop Slice up as soon as possible and add him to their team.
