Spider Character Sketches

I am taking a class on illustrating children's books. It focuses a lot on the business, planning, and layout aspects, rather than critiques of drawings, but we are moving into more image-focused classes now. I am still working on my character for my story. She's a spider named Louise. These drawings are based on her being a spiny-back orb weaver. They are really cute and make beautiful webs. Here is a general sketch of her, then one of her riding her bike and one of her scuba diving.

All are ink and watercolor on watercolor paper, about 8"x10".

other people's spider drawings are simply not as good

these are beautiful and the best I've ever seen.
