Artist: Dawn / September 24, 2011

Step 1.

Make a round shape for the head of the ant, and then draw in a smaller circle for the body. Add one face guide and proceed on.

Step 2.

Using the shape that you drew in step one for the head of the ant, sketch out the actual structure of the ant's head and mouth area. Draw in the antenna and move to step three.

Step 3.

Draw out the large eyes, and then draw in the eyeballs. Next, draw the ant's chibi style mouth and then draw out the claw like pincher's at the front part of the ant's face like so.

Step 4.

Now draw out the almond shaped body and add in the body detailing which is two simple lines.

Step 5.

For the last drawing step add all the legs and erase the mistakes if any, to clean up the drawing of your new ant.

Step 6.

The finished line art should look like this when you are done. Now you can color in your insect and add this sketch to your drawing collection.
