To draw a 3d butterfly
First start by drawing the head of the butterfly. First, draw an oval to form the large compound eye. Wrap another, larger oval partially covered by the first to form the head.
Use a curved line to enclose another oval section on the opposite side of the head, indicating the other eye. Then, stretch a series of short curved lines that meet at the jagged points to start outlining the chest or midsection of the butterfly.
Continue to outline the oval ribcage using a series of curved lines that meet at jagged points. From the back of the chest, extend a long, curved line and fold it back on itself to form the belly.
Next, draw the butterfly’s antennae. Extend two long curved lines from the top and draw a small oval at the end of each.
Draw the first butterfly leg using two narrowly spaced “L” shaped lines. Finally, tape the belly with curved lines.
Draw more pins, delete as needed. Again, use two “L” shaped lines for each leg. Connect the lines with curves where they meet. From the top of each leg, extend a curved line and double it back onto itself to form the foot.
Continue drawing the legs of the butterfly. Use “L” shaped lines for each leg, with curved lines at the top and to form the foot.
Draw the last leg in the same way as before. Butterflies have a total of six legs. Then start sketching the delicate wing. Extend a long, curved line from the back of the head. Double it back to itself at the top and extend it outward to trace the wavy edge of the wing.
Draw the remaining front wing. Extend a long, curved line from the back of the chest. Double it back to itself, note the wavy edge. Then use another curved line to enclose the rear wing.
Add details to the wings. Use connected “U” shaped lines.
Add even more detail to the wings. Draw a large teardrop shape near the edges. and finally create a shadow of the butterfly on the paper.
Color your butterfly. Create your own unique pattern or look for real butterflies and their color combinations.
