To break into one of my first insect tutorials, today I am going to teach you how to draw a bee. Let me start by saying that I am deathly terrified of bees, so this tutorial wasn’t necessarily top of my to-do list. But let’s get started!
What you’ll need:
To begin drawing your bee, make a circle for the bee’s thorax. We are going to be drawing a bumble bee, so be sure to make its body very round.
To the left of the circle from step 1, draw an oval that is about equal size of the body. This oval should be slightly flat on the bottom, and will become the back end, or abdomen, of your bee.
In the center of the circle of the bee’s body, make another oval that is nearly as long as the bee’s body, but about half as wide. This will be the wing of your bee.
Attached to the front end of the bee’s body, draw another small oval for it’s head. Inside, give the bee another oval for its large eye. Keep in mind that the eye of your bee should be almost half the size of its head.
Draw in three hooked legs underneath the middle section of your bee. The front leg should be the smallest, and the back leg the largest.
Don’t forget to give your bee two thin antennas.
Draw in the finishing touches to your bee, like some lines in the wings to give the look of veins. Also, you can see in the image on the right that I have erased the outline of the bee’s body, and replaced it with a very jagged outline to give the illusion of a fuzzy body.
That’s about it. You’ve just drawn a bee! Don’t forget to comment and like us on Facebook!
