How to draw a beetle step by step
Start by outlining the beetle’s head. Use curved lines to enclose irregular shapes. Notice the three bulges at the front of the head.
Next, outline the thorax or midsection of the beetle. Use a long curved line to enclose the irregular shape.
Use a long, curved line to enclose the irregular shape of the belly, leaving a small space between the belly and the chest. Connect two body segments using short lines.
Attach semicircles on either side of the head to represent the beetle’s eyes. Then contour each segment with curved lines at the edges. Also note, the curve extends in the middle of the abdomen. This shows the opening in the beetle’s shell that allows it to spread its wings.
Draw the legs of the beetle. Extend a curved line and duplicate it back to form the first leg section for each leg. Then extend another curve and duplicate it back to itself. Finally, draw the beetle’s legs. Extend a curved line from the bottom of the leg. Then draw a zigzag line to connect the opposite side to the leg. These serrations allow bugs to grip and climb.
Draw the leg of the opposite side. For each of the two leg sections, extend a curve and duplicate it back to itself. For the feet, extend a curved line. Then, connect its end to the leg with a serrated zigzag.
Draw the jaws or claws of the beetle. For each one, extend a long, curved line from the front of the head. Then, use a series of curved lines that meet at gentle or jagged points to form the inside of the lower jaw.
Draw the heart, the appendage near the mouth used to touch and taste. For each hand stroke, extend a short curved line and duplicate it back to itself. Repeat this three times for each palpation. Contour of tangerines with curves.
Draw beard. For each antenna, extend a pair of curves from one side of the head. Connect them at the ends using a set of jagged lines.
