How to Draw Spring Butterflies

Artist: Dawn / February 9, 2017

Step 1.

We will begin by drawing the single lined body guidelines and then draw the guides for the heads.

Step 2.

Next, draw the butterflies' body shapes like so, then draw in their antenna with small darkened balls at the ends.

Step 3.

We will now draw in the two sectioned wings. Notice that each butterfly has their own distinctive wing shaped designs.

Step 4.

Draw in the other wing for both butterflies, then add the design pattern on the wings.

Step 5.

Lastly, draw in the ribs for the wings and then draw in your choice of designs. When you are satisfied with your butterflies you can erase your mistakes and guidelines.

Step 6.

Here is the line art for your butterflies, now you can color them in and add your choice of background for a nice Spring feel.

Description: Spring is here is it shows because the weather is warmer, the birds are coming out, and I already saw my first butterfly. Today I want to show folks how to draw Spring butterflies, step by step but not in a conventional manner. I know most would expect to see tulips, daisies or some other form of Spring flower, but I wanted this drawing to be cool so I made a sakura tree in the background while the butterflies stayed upfront. To me the butterflies came out really pretty and I stayed with the purple/pink hues because I really wanted this colored image to pop out. In all it's a fun lesson to follow especially if you like drawing butterflies. I will be back in a bit folks so stay tuned in.
