How to Draw a Cute Tarantula - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Begin with the head. Add two large eyes in the center of the face, and one smaller dots to the outside ends of the eyes, and a curved line between the eyes.
Step 2: Draw the hands by drawing two oval shapes at the bottom of the head.
Step 3: Add the first set of legs, one on each side of the center of the head. These look like "L"-shapes, with two lines placed in them to separate them into three parts.
Step 4: Now, add the second pair of legs just behind the first, once again drawing "L"-shapes.
Step 5: In the same way, draw a third pair of legs.
Step 6: For the fourth pair of legs, once again draw an "L"-shape, this time making them slightly longer than the first three pairs of legs.
Step 7: Behind the last pair of legs, draw a semi circle to connect the behind the last pair of legs, to complete the body.
Step 8: Your tarantula is now complete!
