Learn how to draw an easy butterfly

Spring is approaching

The first flowers are slowly emerging from the ground. Spring is slowly but surely coming! That’s why, out of pure anticipation, today we want to draw a butterfly with you. Usually, our drawing tutorials are rather realistic. Occasionally, however, we also create tutorials that are a bit cuter and simpler. Like this cute butterfly. We wish you lots of fun!

And since we are talking about spring: why not drawing some tulips as well? 

Drawing a simple butterfly

Before you start, take a close look at our drawing instructions. Make sure the butterfly has enough space on your paper and that its wings fit on it. Then, you start with the first step. Actually, the body of the delicate creature is somewhat like an elongated drop. At the top, it’s round so we have space for the face. Everything highlighted in red is added in the respective step. In the second picture, the butterfly gets two dots as eyes and the upper wings. It looks best if the wings are approximately the same size and symmetrical. Feel free to try it several times with a soft pencil before moving on.

By now adding the lower wings about the same size, your insect is almost finished. Under the eyes, you also draw a cheerful smiling mouth. Two antennae go on the head. If you like, you can already consider your butterfly drawing finished here. In the fourth step, we curled the antennae a bit and drew some patterns on the wings. But here, you can also let your imagination run wild!

Butterflies in cheerful spring colors

So, your drawing is now complete. It’s best to go over the lines with a black fineliner to make them bold and long-lasting. When it comes to colors and patterns, you can now let your creativity run wild! Of course, not all color combinations exist in the butterfly world, but there are quite a lot. Besides, this is your very own butterfly, who is happy to shine in your favorite colors.
