Step 1.

Okay guys let's get started. Start out by drawing the guides for the moth and the hand/finger.

Step 2.

Begin by drawing the moth. Start with the head and then draw the body line as well as the legs. Three on one side and only one on the other.

Step 3.

Finish the shape of the moth's head then draw in the face which is only an eye. Add the fury antenna and then sketch in the hairy body.

Step 4.

We will now draw in the large moth wings along with the abdomen. There should be lines on the shape of the abdomen so don't forget those.

Step 5.

We will now take a step back and begin to detail the moth's wings. This should include a series of spots both large and small.

Step 6.

The moth is finished. Now we can start drawing the hand. The best way to start this step is to begin by drawing the finger first, then the top part of the hand and then the thumb and wrist. You can either leave the hand covered with skin, or add the    

Step 7.

For the last drawing step, just add the rest of the fingers for the hand. When this is done erase the mistakes and all the guides.

Step 8.

This is what your line art or drawing should look like when finished. Just add some color to complete the art.

Description: This tutorial is a bit different then most. Here you will be learning how to draw a Summer moth, step by step. What exactly is a moth from the Summer months? Well, I like to think of it as a species of moth that only comes around during the hot nights of Summer. I wanted to do something a little different to spruce up the lesson so what I did was draw a decaying hand as the moth rests on the finger. The hand is supposed to represent the passing of time and how with time comes age and death. Anyways, I loved how this lesson came out and I think that you will love learning how to draw a Summer moth too. Adios folks and wait till you see what comes up next.
