click the image to enlargeDecide the approximate size of your dragonfly drawing and draw a single cross, like you see on this picture. Vertical line represents dragonfly’s long body and the short horizontal line is the place where we shall draw the eyes.
click the image to enlargeDraw a pair of eyeballs first. It is necessary because the size of the eyes will determine the size of rest of the body and wings.
click the image to enlargeAt this stage we shall draw several “guide-lines” that will help us to draw the wings. These lines are not absolutely necessary but are helpful to get a good balance while drawing the wings on both sides.
click the image to enlargeMake a simple sketch of the front wings. Do not try to draw the exact shape at this stage if you cannot. Make as many lines as necessary, even though the wings outline would look pretty thick. It is OK!
click the image to enlargeSketch the hind wings, the same way as above. I call this drawing a “sketch” on purpose because it is still very rough although the approximate shape is already visible.
click the image to enlargeErase the unnecessary lines from the wings and decide their final shape. From now on you may find the sharp pencil and pencil-shaped eraser both, as incredibly convenient tools to do this.
click the image to enlargeContinue the same procedure with eraser and sharp pencil to outline exactly the final shape of dragonfly. Now you should have almost a complete dragonfly drawing.
click the image to enlargeDraw the legs. Dragonfly has six legs that serve as a landing gear and for capturing the prey. Shade the eyeballs and draw the simple body pattern.
click the image to enlargeUsually an insect’s wings means almost impossible hurdle for many people. I assure you they are very easy to draw. They have many veins curving through the length of the wings. All you need is to decide the main ones and you can subordinate the small veins to the “main-stream”.
click the image to enlargeFill up the dragonfly’s wings with veins as you see on this picture. Please do not try to be very precise here if you don’t feel like to do so.
click the image to enlargeShade the rest of the body and you have another beautiful piece of your dragonfly drawings collection ready.
