How to Draw a Spider Skull

Artist: Dawn / November 1, 2010

Step 1.

Start with an oblong egg shape and then add some guidelines inside of the spiders diaphragm. Next, draw a total of four legs like so which appear to look like they are closing in on each other.

Step 2.

You will begin sketching out the shape of the spider skull's body and as you can see the edges are defined to resemble a skulls face.

Step 3.

The next thing you will do is start drawing out the bone shaped legs . The legs are a skeletal version of spider legs. Each leg has a total of five bony parts and this is the first part you will be drawing.

Step 4.

Draw the rest of the skeletal legs out like so, and when you reach the end of each limb, be sure to draw pointed tips that look sharp as a needle.

Step 5.

Now all you have to do to finish this drawing is draw in the eyes, nose, and then the tooth lines for the mouth. Color in the sockets, and then start erasing all the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 6.

When you are finished with this drawing, your spider skull should look like the one you see here. What an awesome skull design huh guys? Thank you for viewing this lesson, and be sure to come back and join me for another fun filled tutorial.
