Start by drawing a flattened oval at one end. This forms the head of the ant. Draw two small ovals in this shape to form the eyes and a small curve at the top – it can simply add depth to the face or it can be a smile!
Enclose another irregular oval as if partially obscured by the first shape. This forms part of the ant’s thorax, or midsection.
Draw another, smaller oval as if overlapped by the previous one.
Use a curved line to enclose a small circle at the back of the chest. Then use a much longer curved line to enclose the irregularly shaped abdomen.
Detail the ant by adding stripes on the belly. Trace the shape with parallel curved lines.
Draw the front legs. First, draw an oval overlapping the chest, erasing the guide lines if necessary. Then use pairs of curves to enclose segments of the legs. Notice how the segments get wider and narrower. The last segment must be shorter than the other and the lines must converge at a point. Repeat this process on the distal leg, using a curved line to enclose the top between the head and chest.
Draw the middle leg. Start with an oval, erasing the guides as needed. Then, including segments of the leg, the last segment ends with a pointed tip.
Draw the hind legs, erasing guide lines if necessary from the oval. Then use pairs of curves to form segments of the legs.
Draw the far pins, using line pairs for each segment. Bandage the chest with a curved line. Shade the eyes, leaving a small oval in each eye unobscured. Use line pairs to draw whiskers, erasing guide lines as needed.
Color your ant. Many species of ants are red, black, brown, or a combination of these colors. Some tropical species are yellow or green.
