Learn how to draw cartoon bugs with an easy step by step tutorial, and then repeat them in different sizes for a fun summer drawing.
Bugs don’t always have to be “creepy crawlies”. When you draw them, you can make them as cute as can be! Bugs are a necessary part of our planet and deserve to be displayed as such. This cartoon drawing tutorial shows another way that we can view our multi-legged friends.
Here are two little tips for today’s cartoon bug drawing.
One, is that it’s very easy to make your drawing have a little perspective, simply by altering the sizes of similar things. After you have drawn one bug, try making some bigger and some smaller, possibly at different angles too.
Two, your grass line doesn’t always have to be a straight line. Some yards are hilly, and go up and down, so why not try that simple change once in awhile? Sometimes it’s the little details that make a drawing extra charming.
