They are very interesting creatures. For example, they are more closely related to arachnids (spiders, scorpions, etc), they turn upside down when they swim, they've been around since the time of the dinosaurs, and their blood is blue and can be used to make medicines.

Also don't they chew with their feet?

Yup. In addition, similarly to spiders, they have chelicerae, which are a small pair of appendages that move food to the mouth. They also have pedipalps, like other arachnids. They are fascinating creatures, and I would love to see one in person some day.

This color palette is so bright and fun. You are reminding me of my childhood. I love horseshoe crabs.

Super cute!! This pe8ce is so fun & colorful. It gives me happy feelings just veiwing it. Great job! Such a unique idea too (inspiration is something I struggle with). Now I'm thinking, hmm... you can draw almost anything & have it be a master peice as long as it's well done😀
