In this tutorial, you will learn how to draw a fly. I promise that you will have a good time and improve your drawing skills.
I suggest you complete an interesting lesson that is dedicated to drawing insects, and now I will show you in detail how to draw a fly step by step. They are widespread dipterous insects.
On our planet, there are different types of flies that differ in size and structural features. Common houseflies are harmful because they carry dirt and disease-causing bacteria on their paws. At the same time, flies are of great importance in wildlife, as they are food for birds.
To successfully complete the lesson, follow the sequence of steps and carefully draw all the lines that are marked in red in each drawing step. Also make sure that both sides of the fly’s body are symmetrical.
