​Bees are very simple creatures to draw. They are made of very simple, round shapes. These shapes should take a minimal effort to draw.

​Begin sketching very lightly, you don't want to make any of your sketch lines too dark, this will just make it harder for you to erase them in the long run.

​Before you begin the sketching process, make sure to visualize the size of your bee. This will help you decide how big to draw each shape.

​In the guide below, each step is highlighted in a light blue color.

You don't need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.
