How to Draw A Cartoon Ladybug

In this lesson, you will have the opportunity to create a simple ladybug using basic shapes and cute effects. Of all lessons available in this series, this is probably the easiest one to achieved. All shapes are relatively easy to create and special effects are also simple and easily done using a vector application. Of course, you can also draw this cute ladybug using a pencil and a piece of paper. The result will be different, but it can easily be visually as interesting (if not more!).

Ladybugs are cute insects. However, don't be fooled by the cuteness of this adorable animal! These pretty insects are in fact ferocious predators that can destroy and damage properties quite easily. Are you ready to draw? Great! Let's start with step number one below! :)

Step 1

In this first step, you can start by illustrating the body of the insect using a large circular shape. This one can be filled with small circles on the bottom. On top of the body, you can add a curved line to create the dark area below the head. Then, you can draw the head using a circle. Two small oval shapes are also added to create small patches. Don't forget to create the legs using rectangular shapes.

Step 2

Next, add some plain colors on this illustration. The body of the ladybug can be filled with a bright red color while the head (and the part on the bottom of the head) are filled with a black color. All round patches and legs can also be colored in black.

Step 3

In this simple step, simply add a new shape on the left side of the body of the ladybug to create a shadow. This new shadow must be small and subtle. A good tip to create a perfect shadow is to play with the opacity of this shape. Once you are finished, you can proceed with the next step.

Step 4

This step might seem complex, but it's really not. All shapes with a blue outline are new shapes added to create highlights on the insect. All these new shapes are small than the original. They are also partially transparent and filled in white. Of course, blue outlines are only used to help you see what needs to be done. These shapes don't have any outlines! :)

Nice work! This simple cartoon ladybug was not so difficult to create! Feel free to try different postures, angles or even colors. You can also create a ladybug with huge eyes, larger legs or a smaller body. Possibilities are endless! Have fun! :)
