Butterflies are actually some of the most famous insects. These creatures are known to almost all inhabitants of the Earth. In different parts of the world, you can find a wide variety of butterflies, from small and faded to literally huge and painted in all colors of the rainbow.
In the first stage, depict the eyes and pupils of our cute insect with the help of ordinary circles.
Depict the butterfly’s antennae above the eyes and a face with a mouth as shown in my example.
In this stage of the instruction on how to draw a butterfly for children, we depict the body. In the upper part, it is rounded and gradually tapers towards the tip.
Using long and curved lines depict the upper part of the butterfly’s wings. The wing closer to us should appear visually larger than the one that is a little further away.
Continue the wings and depict their lower part as shown in the artwork below. You can repeat the pattern as in the example below, or come up with a different shape for the bottom of the wings.
