    As an artist I really want to start illustrating my tarantulas but I have absolutely no clue on how to go about it. It seems theres no tutorials on how to draw them and none of my artist friends like tarantulas... I'm going in at it alone.

    Sounds like a good opportunity for some trial and error so you can prosuce your own tutorials for others! I myself have zero artistic ability so I can't be of any help...

    What kind of art are you wanting to do? Are you going off observation or just wanting to be able to draw a tarantula? I went to c.c.a.d(columbus college of art and design) as a child and was accepted to the art institute of Pittsburgh after I graduated high school, though I did NOT pursue a career in arts, I did learn a lot growing up.
    This is actually something I've wanted to do myself, just never can find the time to bust out the old sketch pad any more.
