Dragonfly Drawing Step 1
Step 1: Let’s draw a rough guideline for the Dragonfly. Sketch a a straight line with 2 other straight lines crossing over the first one. This will create the basis for the body and wings.
Step 2: Next we will add 2 oval circles for the eyes and 2 more circles just under the eyes for the upper part of the body. Then create a long oval around the largest part of the body.
Step 3: Now we will add some long narrow loops on either side of the body for the wings. You will probably need to erase the guidelines that were there at this point. Notice how they indent at the points where the connect to the body.
Step 4: Almost there! We just need to add the details next! Fill in the 2 upper body circles that connect the wings. Fill in most of the eyes, leaving a white area for the highlight. Add 2 small antennae above the eyes. And sketch in some details for the veining on the wings and markings on the body.
The only thing left to do now is to color in your beautiful Insect! Go grab your markers, Crayola crayons, oil pastels or color pencils, or whatever you have on hand, and finish your artwork masterpiece! I colored this one in with colors of blues and greens. But you can let your creativity go wild and use whatever colors you like! You get to decide!
