STEP 1. Ok this is a pretty basic step. We must first define the frame of the dragonfly so drawing the outer pieces of it will be much easier. The frame is pretty much the core of drawing so that you have all your proportions right. So begin with a circle then three lines. The first line has to be drawn vertically and the two others have to be drawn horizontally. I hope your ready for the next step!   STEP 2. Now in this step we will begin to draw the outer lines of the dragonfly. This should be fairly easy because of the guidelines we added. Add the trim of the wings at the top of the wings and the second set of wings. Dragonflies have two sets of wings.One set lays at the top and the other lays in the middle. Don't forget to draw in the abdomen and the thorax as well.   STEP 3. Ok now this is the fun part. This is where we finish all of the outer body parts that are important! As you can see there are swirls extending from the bottom of the wing. These are unnecessary but you can add them in if you want. I added these just for fashion. After you have added the wings its time to draw the eyes and mouth for the dragonfly. This is pretty much the end of the step!   STEP 4. This is where we will add in the unique and pretty designs for our dragonfly. The designs we will be adding are the ones on the thorax and abdomen. This will customize your insect so it looks really nice! After you have done that draw in the legs and some fancy antennas. Then draw some detailing to the wings so that they look more realistic.   STEP 5. Alright people, this step is really easy. All your doing is adding the scaly looking lines into the wings. This is definitely easy to accomplish. You can add in your own designs for the wings if you want. After you've done that you should be done.   STEP 6. Well folks this is where the journey ends. Make sure you erase the guidelines from step one and you should definitely be done. A lot of people ask me how do you know what's guidelines or not. I tell them that most of the guidelines are drawn in step one and sometimes step two or three. I hope this tutorial was exceptionally easy for you! Learning how to draw a dragonfly can be really easy! Have fun once again! Oh and don't forget to submit your art at!   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
