Create the legsextruding them from the body.  It'senough to model one leg, then use that as a base for the other legs. Copying theleg, and forming the other legs: select the polygons of the legs in polygon modethen copy them. Create a new mesh on the Items palette, and paste them there toget a mesh, which you can move to the correct position. Form a hole on thespiders body to where you can fit the legs, then snap the legs vertices to thehole. Configuring snapping: The horizontal Toolbar/Snapping/Geometry.

Then copy the legs polys back to the spider's mesh, and merge the fitting vertices (Tools Tab/ Vertex/ Merge).

Create the otherlegs with the same method. You have to model the legs on only one side, and thenmirror them after the UV-ing to the other side. This way we save texture space,because the pairs of legs will take up the same place on the texture

Where did the reference images come from? I would like to use them to create my own model.
