Small traditional drawing of a Peacock spider (Maratus volans) for fun. Usually my relationship to spiders is basically this one: Man vs spider by CookiemagiK But jumping spiders are just sooo cute with their big eyes and also very tiny (this one is ~5mm)...
Maratus (peacock spiders) is a genus of the family Salticidae (jumping spiders). Peacock spiders are even more adorable than other jumping spiders, because of their courtship behavior: Male spiders display their colorful abdominal flaps in combination with a cute dance to impress the female. It's just adorable. :heart:
My favourite part of this drawing: the eyes of the spider and the stone with the depth of field (transition from sharp to blurred). But again my scanner killed the colours...

The Peacock Spider was in a Nat Geo Wild show about the spiders. It mostly talked about how they dance to attract females....

Wow. I actually remember watching a documentary which mentioned this Spider. It creates such a beautiful display, but it's also kind of sad considering that after they mate, the female actually kills the male (something about ensuring their young have food for when they hatch). At least I think it was that spider, my memory is totally useless Sweating a little...

Thanks! I haven't heard about peacock spider females eating males so far and in the videos (see link to youtube channel) the male spiders survived. So there's some hope left that it was another species. ;)

Thank you! I always list the tools in the description of every drawing (and for my technique you can also take a look at one of my tutorials). ;) For this drawing I used colored pencils, markers, multiliner and a white gel pen.
