Description: Today is the day that almost all the lessons will be on something easy, cute, and fun. For the second lesson you will get a four step tutorial on "how to draw a bumblebee", step by step. Is there a difference between a bee and bumblebee? To my understanding a bee is a whole lot smaller then a bumblebee. Bumblebees are rounder, fatter, and have more fur on their bodies. Also, bumblebees don’t lose their singers when they sting prey or people, and because of this they also still have their lives if they sting someone or something. The bee however does loose its stinger and die shortly after. Another interesting fact about the bumblebee and their sting is they can sting over and over again because they do not have barbs on their stingers. So what does the bee have on a bumblebee? Aggression; yup, it’s a known fact that the bee is way more aggressive then a bumblebee. I guess the saying proves right after all, you should be weary of the scrawny rather than the brutes. To me it’s always fun drawing insects even if I already made tutorials on them before. I think once you read this description, you will be eager to tackle this tutorial on "how to draw a bumblebee". That’s all for now folks but there are much more coming your way. Peace people and enjoy your drawing day!
