STEP 1. The first guidelines will be for your butterfly. So here you will need to draw a plus sign that is slightly bent looking.   STEP 2. Using the middle guidelines, draw the butterfly's head and body like so, as well as the antenna which curl out at the tips. You can design your own antenna pattern if you like.   STEP 3. As with a lot of my butterflies, you can choose to change the pattern or style of the wings if you like, or you can just follow this tutorial verbatim. No matter what you choose, you will have to draw the left side of the butterfly's wings. The edging for my wing is ruffled, and the tail of the wing has a cute ruffled tuft.   STEP 4. You will do the exact same thing on the right side that you did on the left. Draw the wing the same exact way like so, and then move to step five.   STEP 5. I usually don't include a step on the things that my butterflies land on, but this time I thought it would be helpful. Draw the freshly raised stem of a flower that will bloom any day now, or you can draw yourself a nice spring flower. Add detailing to the stem, and now is the time to draw in your wing pattern.   STEP 6. Once you have cleaned up your mistakes and guides you can start coloring in your springtime butterfly. I hope you had as much fun as I did.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
