Butterflies are lovely and fascinating creatures. Now you can easily add them to your drawings and artwork. Your imagination is the only limiting factor so don’t be afraid to set it free!
You can just get creative and start doodling on the wings to create a pattern! You could also look up images of butterfly wings online to find a pattern that you would like to copy.
Draw the body. Draw two ovals, a regular one just under the head and a more elongated one below that to form the tail end of the butterfly.
Here’s a 1:20 second video on how to draw a butterfly in 10 steps. Another fun style to try and copy.
The butterfly has four stages in its life cycle: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight. Butterflies exhibit polymorphism, mimicry and aposematism.
Some butterflies migrate over long distances. Butterflies feed primarily on nectar from flowers.

Draw the eyes from the bead-like shape and draw the antennae. Draw vertical lines in the rectangle and horizontal lines below it.
One way to draw a butterfly is by starting with a small circle for the head, with two small ovals on either side for the eyes. Then, draw 2 long lines extended from the head with very small ovals at the end for the antennae. On the other side of the head, draw an oval extending from the back of the head, with another, elongated oval attached to the back of it. On each side of the body, draw two large triangles with rounded sides and edges for the wings that attach to the body. To finish the butterfly, fill in the wings with designs and add color!
Draw the butterfly’s wings which have equal size and pattern from both sides.
Add in the wings. For the top wings, draw two large triangular shapes with rounded sides. For the bottom, draw another two rounded triangular shapes but make these much smaller than the ones above. Follow the image as a guide.
Step 8: Draw the final details to the head and add the antennae.
It depends on what you mean by that, but yes, you could. You could either make a butterfly on an actual plate with real food, or you could draw foods to make up the body of the butterfly. For example, you could use a banana for the body and spaghetti for the antennae.
Try to draw a light line with a ruler. Be careful, though, the pencil will only erase what it can. Anyway, sketch a line lightly in the middle of the butterfly. Once you have done that, try your best to just look at the other side, and again, sketch lightly because you are not sure if you can do the other side right in just one try.
So when you finish the other side of the butterfly, see if you got it right. If you didn’t get it right, erase your errors, and keep sketching until you get the other side right. If you get it right, however, use the pencil or a fine black marker and outline the lines of the butterfly.
And in my opinion, I think that strategy is the simplest one. Another way is to use tracing paper or other thin paper, put it over your butterfly and trace the first wing. Cut that out, line it up on the other side, and trace it.

Design the wings. Now this is the fun part. You can either copy a real butterfly’s wing design or create something entirely your own! Add in designs such as ovals and circles. Be sure to mirror what you draw on the right wing on the left wing too because symmetry is the central design feature of butterflies.

Draw the pattern and details for the wings in both sides by using curves.
Just draw a thick line where the body would be and then extend the wings out from there.
Create the butterfly’s antennae. On top of the head, draw two long lines for the antennae. Add two very small ovals at each tip to complete them.
Try to use bright colors to make the butterfly stand out. Don’t just stick to one design, but open up to a variety of colors! Look at online images for inspiration for designs and colors for your butterfly drawings.
It helps if you lightly trace so that you can erase. If you wish to draw the butterflies in your own garden, it’s recommended that you take photos of them and follow the photos when designing your drawing.
Mix bright and dark colors to make it look unique. Make a butterfly garden to study the butterflies and find the colours and patterns of the butterflies. It’s good to shade color when necessary. Go into your back garden and take pictures to study and find out the reason of the beautiful colors and try making your own by mixing the pictures up.
When drawing a butterfly while it’s perched on something you should only draw one side of the butterfly including the body.
Outline your butterfly with a fine marker. Once it’s outlined, erase the guidelines.

Here are some interesting facts about the Butterfly you might find interesting.
Step 1: Draw an oval to represent the beginning the body section.
After you’ve drawn the wings (step four), extend the top right and left corners into points. Follow the same steps on the bottom corners. Once you’ve decided whether you want vertical or horizontal stripes, grab a ruler.
Very lightly draw lines, vertical or horizontal, spaced evenly apart. Step back for a moment, if the lightly drawn lines look good, fill them in more heavily.

Draw a bead-like shape and below it draw smooth small rectangle and then a bullet-like shape.
Trace with a pen and erase unnecessary lines. Trace with a pen to darken some parts of the pattern in the wings.
Start with the head of the butterfly. Sketch in a circle for the head. Then draw two small ovals at each side of the circle for the eyes.
