When you want to learn how to draw a grasshopper that looks real, but is still kinda cute, try this step by step tutorial.
Most of the grasshopper tutorials that I have seen have either been meant for kids just learning how to draw (the circle head is a dead giveaway) or best for high schoolers learning how to shade. That’s quite a gap, to say the least.
What’s an older elementary student to do? Well, here’s a new easy tutorial that has all the necessary science-y body parts (head, thorax, wing, abdomen) with a touch of cuteness too. A little twinkle in the eye adds some storybook charm to what otherwise might be just more of a grasshopper diagram. Why not have a little of each?
