My wife and I had the greatest fun looking up spiders, creepy crawlies and aww’ing at all those cute wolf spider selfies. But in reality I am terrified of spiders, especially those close-ups where every eyeball is just staring at you intensely and the fangs are very detailed and real.
I loosely based my drawing on a variety of the Cheiracanthium mildei, or more commonly known a yellow sac spider.
When I say loosely based, it usually means I get inspired and borrow traits but I do not try to copy. That always introduces interesting angles to a drawing. At a certain point I stop looking at the reference drawing and let my fantasy just take over.
