STEP 1. Start with a circle for the back end of the body, and then draw a bullet shaped tip for the head. You will then end this step by drawing three very long leg lines.   STEP 2. You will now start sketching out the layered scales that you see here that make up the flea's body form. Once this is done you can sketch in the small hairs that they have on top of their bodies.   STEP 3. Draw an eye, and then sketch out the three tentacle like mouth parts as you see here. Next draw the underside of the insect, and then start sketching out the front legs, and the middle legs. In all reality, the flea has three different sets of legs, front, middle, and back. The back legs are longer so that they can jump. Did you know that a flea can jump as high as four feet?   STEP 4. For your last drawing step what you will need to do first is draw the full shape of the abdomen. Draw the detailing lines, as well as the back layered scales. Next and lastly, sketch out the rest of the legs and then add small hairs that are sporadically placed on the limbs. Erase all the guidelines and shapes, then move to the line art step.   STEP 5. This is how you insect looks when you're done. Color it in, and then you have a finished sketch on "How to draw a flea, step by step".   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
