Start your first step by making a small circle for the head of the butterfly, then draw out the long wormy looking body.


Next, draw in the antenna, then draw the eyes, as well as the legs and spots on the body.


Since the butterfly is being drawn from the side all you have to do is draw out the butterfly wing design. Choose the type if style you want for the wings.


sketch in the design pattern on the wings, then you can add more tweaks if you like.


Continue to work on the butterfly by drawing out the rest of the pattern on the wings which also happen to be the small super thin veins.


lastly, draw out the flower. You can choose to go with any type of flower, but I chose to go with one shaped like a poinsettia. Add detailing to each visible petal before you start cleaning up the drawing freeing it from mistakes.


Here is what the butterfly looks like when you are done. Color it in and that's it. Wasn't that a fun drawing to create? Now you can show folks what you have done.
