Draw a thin, elongated oval with sharp ends. This figure will be a body. We start from it and draw another details.
If you have a little child, draw a bigger butterfly to make it easier to color it. If the butterfly is an element of a general pattern, the body and the wings will be smaller.
Draw two identical circles on the top.
Draw two smaller ones at the bottom. The circles must be in touch with each other and the body.
Erase the lines of circles’ intersection. The result is the smooth and the symmetrical wings. Don’t forget to draw the slightly twisted antennae.
They can be different – from simple geometrical figures for the smallest ones to complex thin bends and weaves.
Divide the body into chest and belly.
We are drawing the simplest patterns.
We can slightly “complicate” our drawing. Draw the body and the upper part of the wings.
Mark the contours and the drawing is ready.
