Before learning how to draw a spider: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • Spiders are digesting food outside their bodies.
  • The spider's skeleton is located outside its body. 
  • There are over 30 000 different species of spiders.

Step 1

This easy tutorial will help you learn how to draw a cartoon spider scarier... or funnier than the real thing! The spider is well-known for his eight walking legs (2). The pair on the front and in the back are longer while the ones in the middle are a little shorter (4).

Don't forget the small fangs (3) near the eyes. Spiders come in a great variety of colors so it's really up to you to choose the ones you like the most.

Step 2

Decomposing our little friend in shapes show us that all legs are made of five different parts. We also notice that the abdomen of the spider is really bigger than the head. Take a good look to see how the legs are drawn. All legs have different curves and positions making each of them rather unique.

Step 3

Let's try to draw a funny spider using mostly circles and lines. First, draw a circle for the body and one for the head. Then, add details like the eyes and the fangs. 

We will cheat a little bit by drawing simple three lines legs. For better readability, I also decided to draw only six legs. Eight would be more accurate but not necessarily more beautiful.

Step 4

Drawing a cool spider is not so difficult once you understand the basics of their anatomy. Don't forget that most spiders will eat insects that are considered annoying by humans. So, be kind with them! They will return you the favor in a great way! That's it! Now you know how to draw a cool cartoon spider... a funny one!
