Ant Drawing and Painting

How to draw an ant, and then paint to look round and dimensional. It’s not that hard if you have a skinny brush.

How to draw an ant

Each project includes easy to follow step-by-step tutorial, a full size line drawing for reference, and finished color sample.

Just click on the title or book to learn more.
