In this tutorial, I will show you how to draw a bumblebee. You can easily draw this common insect with a simple instruction.
I have prepared a new lesson for you, which is dedicated to drawing insects. Here, you will learn how to draw a bumblebee step by step. Surely you have heard the loud buzzing of a bumblebee more than once during the flight.
The bumblebee is the closest relative of the bee and has a similar body structure. This large insect is usually not aggressive and will not attack a person first if left untouched. But if a bumblebee does sting, then its venom is much more dangerous than bee venom.
Bumblebees live in large families, where each member has a specific role. Bumblebees are beneficial because they pollinate agricultural plants and thereby increase crop yields.
During the lesson, make sure that both sides of the bumblebee are symmetrical. Take your time and follow each step correctly. I wish you success in this interesting lesson!
