Step 1

Good! Let's start with the creation of the head using a large circle. For the body, you need a long oval shape. Notice on the picture below how the bottom of the shape is narrower and pointed.

Step 2

It's time to draw a special feature that makes a bee so unique: the yellow and black stripes. Don't draw too many lines. As long as you can create two or three stripes of featuring each color, it is more than enough.

Step 3

Another important element that can be drawn using circles are wings. Notice below how the wings are made from circular shapes, but not from perfect circles. The bottom is narrower and thinner. Don't forget the sting on the bottom of the illustration.

Next, you can draw the eyes using large circles. Repeat the same technique to illustrate the pupils. That's pretty much it for this simple step! :)
