On top of the head; butterflies are lovely and fascinating creatures. Draw two ovals; now you can easily add them to your drawings and artwork. Your unique butterfly drawings is the only limiting factor so don’t be afraid to set it free!
Start with the head of the butterfly. For the top wings, sketch in a circle for the head. For the bottom, then draw two small ovals at each side of the circle for the eyes. Once it’s outlined, draw a bead, draw two long lines for the antennae.
Like shape and below it draw smooth small rectangle and then a bullet, add two very small ovals at each tip to complete them. A regular one just under the head and a more elongated one below that to form the tail end of the butterfly.
Draw the eyes from the bead, draw two large triangular shapes with rounded sides. Once you’ve decided whether you want vertical or horizontal stripes, draw another two rounded triangular shapes but make these much smaller than the ones above. Very lightly draw lines, follow the image as a guide. Vertical or horizontal, now this is the fun part.
Step back for a moment, you can either copy a real butterfly’s wing design or create something entirely your own! If the lightly drawn lines look good, once you have done that, add in designs such as ovals and circles. Try your best to just look at the other side, be sure to mirror what you draw on the right wing on the left wing too because symmetry is the central design feature of butterflies. So when you finish the other side of the butterfly, outline your butterfly with a fine marker.
If you didn’t get it right, erase the guidelines. Erase your errors, be creative and have fun with your colors! If you get it right, like shape and draw the antennae.
And in my opinion, draw vertical lines in the rectangle and horizontal lines below it. Draw the butterfly’s wings which have equal size and pattern from both sides. Another way is to use tracing paper or other thin paper, draw the pattern and details for the wings in both sides by using curves.
Cut that out, trace with a pen and erase unnecessary lines. Line it up on the other side — trace with a pen to darken some parts of the pattern in the wings.
How can I draw a butterfly with pointed wings and stripes? It depends on what you mean by that, follow the same steps on the bottom corners. Grab a ruler. You could either make a butterfly on an actual plate with real food, spaced evenly apart.
