So far today I have shown you all how to draw an anime couple and a Shire horse step by step. For my third tutorial of the day I will be showing you "how to draw a Black Widow", step by step. The black widow is probably one of the most lethal and venomous spiders ever. They live in warm climates and the females are larger than the males. Females have a red hour glass like symbol stamped on the top side of their stomach, where as males do not. Males are also one half the size of females with longer legs and they have a shiny sphere like colored stomach with either yellow, red bands or spots. Even though black widow spiders are commonly black, they can also be found in a brown color as well. The female is considered to be the most venomous spider in the world and even though that sounds horribly scary, their bites rarely cause death to humans because of the amount of venom that they inject into the body when they bite. In fact the mortality rate from a black widow bite is less than one percent. Of course that doesn’t mean that you can go untreated when you get bitten by this black soulless looking spider, you must seek out immediate attention by a doctor to treat the venom that has been injected. Now as for the webs that they spin, the black widow will spin an inconsistent web that has neither any shape or form. In fact they look almost like they are run down and torn. The reason why they are given the “black widow” name is because females are known to kill and eat the males after they mate, hence the name “black widow spider”. Their habitats consists of rocks, plants, ledges, or where ever a web can be spun, and their diets mainly consist of various insects. No matter how you look at this so called insect, the black widow spider is a fascinating and respected Arachnida. This tutorial will show you "how to draw a black widow", step by step. I will be back with one more lesson for you all so stay tuned.
