How to Draw a Cartoon Ladybug

Learn how to draw a Cartoon Ladybug with with a cute and silly face. This one is made from some pretty simple shapes.

Although this tutorial is more about drawing a make believe version of a ladybug, students can still learn some interesting facts about them as part of the lesson. Here are a few that I found at Treehugger.com.

  1. They’re actually lady beetles, not ladybugs.
  2. Not all ladybugs are red with black spots.
  3. Ladybugs consume a lot of pests.
  4. They hibernate in the winter.
  5. Their spots serve as a warning to attackers.
  6. The name “ladybug” is legendary and dates back to the Middle Ages.
  7. They have hidden wings.
  8. Ladybug numbers are declining.

Aside from those tidbits, you may find young students can relate to these amazing insects a bit more if they add a fun face to their ladybug body. This example will help students draw a cartoon version, with big eyes and cute antennae. It’s exactly how many cartoon artists get inspired to create new characters.
