Steps To Draw A Honey Bee
You can either follow our video tutorial or the instructions below. You can preview today’s tutorial in the image below.
Draw Full Circle
We’ll begin with the head of the honey bee. Start by drawing a circle for the head of the honey bee as shown in the image above.
Body of Honey Bee
Now, draw an oval to represent the bee’s body as depicted in the image above. Ensure that this oval is attached to the head of the honey bee as shown in the image above.
Draw Two Wings
Next, draw an oval-like shape to represent the honey bee’s wings. Note: draw this shape at the top of the body, as shown in the image above.
Two Charming Eyes
Similarly, draw a small circle at the head to represent the eye of the honey bee. Then, draw another small circle right next to it as shown in the image above.
Draw Hand and Sting
Now, draw the forelegs of the bee as shown in the drawing above. At the back of the bee, draw a sharp sting, as depicted in the drawing above.
Erase Rough Lines
Now, erase any unwanted rough lines, particularly around the eyes and wings, as shown in the image above.
Draw Lines in the Body
Now, draw some lines on the body of the bee as shown in the drawing. Also, add some lines on the wings of the bee as depicted in the image above.
Draw Charming Eyes with Smiley Face
In the final step, draw a small circle for the charming eyes. Inside the eyes, draw another small circle for the pupils and color it black. Next, draw two antennae at the top of the head, and then draw a smiley face for the bee, as shown in the image above.
Coloring a Bee
After the drawing of a honey bee is completed we move forward with coloring the honey bee. For coloring, we had chosen some basic colors.
Since the honey bee is naturally yellow and black in color, fill in the body of the honey bee with yellow and black colors. Then, add light blue color to the wings of the bee and use orange for the antennae.
- Light Blue
After coloring, we get a realistic honey bee. You can use a pencil color (we made it digital).
