How To Draw A Dragonfly with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Easy animals to draw for beginners and kids.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Draw a large, medium and small circle overlapping each other (like a skinny snowman).
Starting at about the bottom half of the middle oval, draw a long, curved line that curves upwards on each side. Draw two more upward curved lines from the bottom oval.
Connect the ends of the top lines to the top circle to create the top wings. Connect the bottom lines to the bottom of the top wings (about a third of the way from the body).
Draw a curved line across the upper body, touching both top wings. Next, draw a larger curved line on that line, joining the two ends of the previous line, to create the head. On top, add a very small curve.
Draw two bowl shapes at the top to create the eyes. Then draw the belly by making two long lines from the bottom of the chest, connected by a curved line (it should look like a very long and slim U).
Draw curved, horizontal and vertical lines down the belly to create segments.
Draw the legs coming out from under the upper wing and the legs coming out from under the bottom wing.
You can stop following the instructions here and decorate the wings however you want (if you want them to be swirly or lifelike). To create more realistic wings, you will need to divide them into segments. Start with circular segments (as shown in the picture).
Make stripes in the shape of the wings.
In the end, you’ll fill the wings with smaller, roughly proportional segments.
Once you’ve finished drawing your dragonfly, you can color it with any color you like!
