You inspire me so much

I LOVE the texture and techniques you used while drawing this spider!!! It makes me feel itchy!!! I love how did the legs and arms!!! It's amazing how you did the bone joints on the spider's legs.... I LOVE IT!!! It is superb, spine tickling, and inspiring!!! You inspire me so much I just want to get out there and, well, paint a spider using your techniques!!! But I can't exactly COPY your work and take credit, that is illegal, plus that's just rude. I will use the techniques you did on some of my drawings!!! YOU INSPIRE ME SOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!

Drawing is about studying yourself and your target.

Thank you!

Thank you everyone!

Haha, go figure. Same with me, I live out in the woods where wolves and bears and pumas live and I go out in the woods without fear but when it come to spiders I FREAK, idk what it is about them, but them make me nervous to.

I can pick up a snake without fear, but dont even think about making touch a spider! Lol

Awesome OrbWeaver

I've followed bears , wolves, and all kinds of animals around the north woods without fear....however spiders always make me nervous. So now I live in a place where Tarantulas live. Go figure. I have a couple that live in my front yard. They're pretty slow and big enough so you always know where they are, so they don't get on my nerves. I actually like them. Nice drawing!

Colours ...

The orange and green combination you have used is really lovely for this fearsome little beastie.


It was the sheer amazingness of them that helped me get over my fear ... I am not saying I like them, and I avoid contact but I can tolerate them and kindly help them find a new home. People used to laugh at me when I got in a state because a spider was running towards me and then stopped an bounced up and down. Last laugh is on me because they do 'bounce up and down' to pump their hydraulic leg joints ... amazing ... and to an engineer quite appealing too
