How to Draw a Worm

Artist: Dawn / November 5, 2009

Step 1.

This lesson has a total of five steps and I think you will find that drawing a worm is easy and fun. Start with a circle for the head and then draw a long squiggly line for the body. Add the facial guidelines and then move to the next step.

Step 2.

Now you can draw the thick shape of the worms body as you see it here and make sure you add the hump and or bump near the mid section or end of the worms body. Earthworms are sometime very hearty looking critters.

Step 3.

Now, using the facial guidelines you drew in step one, draw in his/her cute friendly eyes and then color in some pupils. Draw a smile line and then move to yet another drawing step on how to draw a worm.

Step 4.

For your last drawing step you will widen this worms smile making him/her look even more friendly. Once that is done add some detailing lines around the eyes and then draw in some eyebrows. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step on   

Step 5.

Learning how to draw a worm step by step is probably one of the easiest things you can ever learn how to draw. Now that you are done with this lesson you can choose a shade to color in your worm with, and add this drawing to your art portfolio.

Description: Hi everyone it is I, Dawn, your humble DragoArt artist and friend. I am back after a long depart with another tutorial for you all. I thought I would start the day by showing you guys "how to draw a worm step by step”. If you think about it, there really is no lessons out there on the web that teaches you how to draw a cute little, simple looking worm. Although I think worms are nasty little critters, I often like to draw cartoon like insects and creatures for my six year old sister. She asked me the other day if I could show her how to draw a worm and I said “wow, that's a good idea”. The only thing that had me stumble, was a question she asked me; “is a worm an insect”? I honestly didn't know what to say because I didn't know if a worm was an insect or what. So, what I had to do was a little research. I found that worms are part of the Oligochaeta family. The worm that I used for a reference is your common earthworm that can be found in anybody's backyard when digging up mud, or pulling out grass from the root. My father using these worms to go fishing for freshwater fish. When he goes fishing for saltwater fish, he will mainly use night crawlers or blood worms. I thought it would be cute and fun to draw a cartoon worm because that is what people would expect to draw when looking for a lesson on “how to draw a worm”. Even though I hate worms, it is always fun drawing cartoon worms from scratch because you can make them look like anything you want. You can even draw your worm to have eyelashes, eyeglasses, a bow, or a tie. I think you will find that this lesson is easy and simple to follow. I will be back in a while with more drawing fun, but in the ,mean time have fun with this tutorial, and make sure you color in your little critter the shade of your choice. Adios amigos and have fun.
