How to Draw a Baby Tarantula - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: First off, let's start with the head. Following the picture, draw a circle with tons of little jagged edges. The jagged edges show how hairy a tarantula is. If you're having trouble, draw a circle first and then add the the little jagged edges after.

Step 2: Next, draw the back part of the body. Just like step 1, draw a large circle with little jagged edges that connects to the head.

Step 3: Now, let's draw the eyes and fangs. Tarantulas have eight eyes, so draw eight little circles at the front of the head. Draw two curved triangles for the fangs.

Step 4: Draw the four left legs. Draw little ovals sloping down, with jagged edges. Only the first two need to show, the others can overlap.

Step 5: To finish up your hairy little baby tarantula, let's draw the remaining legs. Draw the legs the same way as the previous step. Your baby tarantula is done!
