So...I drew my tarantulas as humans?

    Hey everyone! Long time no see!
    So, I´d like to start by saying I´m a design and art student and drawing is one of my biggest passions. I especially enjoy doing character concept art. One evening I was bored, and had no idea what to draw...and I just turned to one of my shelves where my B. emilia has her enclosure and...it just struck me.
    I have 12 tarantulas at this point, but most of them are slings, or I haven´t had them long enough to get to know their "personality", so, for now, here are my 4 girls:

    Oncie - she was my first tarantula, the one that started it all. She is the sweetest thing ever, and wouldn´t hurt a fly. She´s absolutely alright with handling, too. So, I tried to capture her sweet, friendly, almost "cheerful" personality.

    Magdaléna - Magda changed a bit since the time I got her. When I got her, she was almost as sweet as Oncie, but once she molted, she turned into a grumpy little ball of fur. She gives me a huge impression of a pampered, slightly egoistic princess that gets anythign she wants. I tried to draw her as if she´s "looking down on you".

    Lilith - Lil is a devil. There´s really not much to say. She´s my oldest tarantula (and soon-to-be-mommy. Yay!) and she´s a bitey little aggressive thing. Anything you stick in her enclosure she attacks. Once she´s out, she calms down tho. I tried to draw her as a punky, annoyed lady that´s actually quite nice when you get to know her.

    Belial - Youngest of these four, she´s a total NUTCASE. she runs around her enclosure, is quite the hunter and my, oh, my, if she isn´t mean! To me, she´s a teenager that wants to rebel against the world, thinks it belongs to her and give no.

    Sorry for this essay, haha, if you like this idea and would like to see more, let me know! I had a blast coming up and drawing these, and I´d love to do the rest of my pet gang!

    That's awesome! Crazy good idea for character concepts!
    I'm a big "draw-er" as well. Might have to do my animals next time the urge strikes me!

    Yes please do! I find a really weird kind of joy in making my pets into characters based on how they act, I think it gives them so much more personality and is a great way for me to connect with the animal more as well!

    I like the font. I don't like eyes, reminds me of anime, and I hate the look of anime.

    I was like 'what's that around their eyes?' Then I realized it was more eyes because they're tarantulas. Cool pics :)

    Holy DANG! The detail is simply astounding! You, my friend are a credit to us all as a species. I'm speechless. My breath is taken away. It's so....beautiful... *single tear trails down heavily bearded cheek*

    Of course all the female tarantulas need to have overly jiggly and bouncy abdomens every time they move XD
