Step 1:

Let’s start out by creating a new file. I used a 600×400 pixels canvas set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with black. Now make a new layer set and name it ‘Spider Design’.

Select the Polygon Tool, above your screen under the options palette choose Fill Pixels, sides 3 with anti-aliased checked. Then open the Polygon Options Window and use the settings below. Now draw a pink polygon with #BE4E59 color shade and 234 px 227 px dimensions.
