Draw a spider by drawing two ovals for the body, drawing four symmetrical pairs of legs and adding final details. You need a pencil and paper or drawing software.
- Draw ovals to represent the body
Draw a squashed oval for the upper body of the spider. Below it, add a second oval for the abdomen. Make the abdomen the same width as the upper body, but slightly tapered at the bottom.
- Add four symmetrical pairs of legs
Draw two legs on either side of the upper body, pointing up. Draw each leg the length of both ovals combined. Next, add a second pair of legs beneath the first pair, but longer and pointing at upward angles. Draw a third pair of equal length below the second pair, pointing at downward angles. Add a final pair of legs where the body sections join together, and draw them pointing down. Taper the legs at the tip, and bend them at the joints.
- Add details
For added detail, draw a pattern on the upper body such as a diamond or hourglass. Add hair to the body and legs. Add a small bulge to the upper body to suggest a head. Include eyes and mandibles.
