OK folks in this clip I'm going to teach you how to draw a cartoon butterfly. And I'm going
to do it right up here in this corner, so let's move over. And the first thing I'm going
to do is I'm going to draw his little butterfly head. And I'm, you know, just kind of like
you get an impression for what you want to do and just kind of go with it, basically.
Like, we're going to draw his little butterfly body. And obviously butterflies don't really
walk around much. At least in the regular insect world they don't. They pretty much
spend their walking days as a caterpillar, obviously. So when we draw our little arms
on this guy, these will pretty much be the only things he has to maneuver with, so we'll
make them kind of small and like they're really not for much use. Draw his little six legs
there. Can make him waving, you know with one of his hands, you know, kind of make it
obvious. So there's his six legs. And obviously you're going to want to come in here and we're
going to draw his wings. And the butterfly has sort of a four part wing span. Kind of
a little something like this. But you got the wings in there. That's doing pretty good.
And let's come up here and we'll put a face on this guy. Butterflies are, I'd say pretty
happy creatures. I'll make this guy no exception. So there's his little eyes there. We'll give
him some kind of curly antennas, because that sounds like fun. Kind of matches the character.
So there's that. And then obviously you're going to want to draw some sort of design
on your butterfly wing. You don't need to go into a whole lot of detail right now, if
you don't want to. It's really kind of up to you I would say. But, there definitely
should be something. Because butterflies are very beautiful insects. So, do not give him
any sort of design, well you didn't make him a butterfly. And then a way to kind of show
movement, is to kind of draw some little movement definition around the tips of his wings is
like this. You could even make a little flying thing coming up just like that. Make it seem
like he's kind of flying up that way. And there you have it. The cartoon butterfly.
