Learn how to draw a great looking Monarch Butterfly with easy, step-by-step drawing instructions, and video tutorial.
Begin by drawing the butterfly's body. Draw a circle for the head, an oval for the thorax, and a long narrow oval for the abdomen.
Erase overlapping lines from the body. Then, draw the antennae and wings with long curved lines.
Extend a long curved line from the bottom of each wing and double it back to the abdomen forming the remaining wings.
Band the abdomen with short curved lines.
Detail the wings. Draw two curved lines from the middle of each wing and connect them. Add teardrop and oval shapes.
Draw a curved line on each hindwing and add teardrop shapes and ovals along the edge.
Add detail to forewings by drawing curved lines from thorax to wing edge and connecting them to create a pattern.
Draw a curved line inside the hindwing and double it back, then connect it to the inner edge with more curved lines.
Add a wavy shape for the mouth and ovals for the eyes. Detail the back with small ovals. Erase any unnecessary lines.
