I absolutely love butterflies and because of that I wanted to do a tutorial on “how to draw a cartoon butterfly” step by step. I also received a few request to do a lesson on a cartoon style butterfly as well, but I never got around to fulfill the request until now. I drew a very simple, colorful, and beautiful insect that will be well liked all over the DragoArt website. Well, at least I hope it will…XD. Anyways, this tutorial is going to be very easy to complete because there is really nothing to it. As I said before, once you get used to drawing cartoon characters and or animals, starting the process is simple. All you have to do is read the instructions, put your hand and pencil to the paper, and draw.
