How to Draw An Ant

Learn how to draw an ant mostly made from circular shapes. Carefully drawn with basic shapes and based on a design that is cute and easy to duplicate, this adorable cartoon animal is part of a huge collection featuring all your favorite cartoon animals (whether it's from the farm, the sea or even insects like this one!).

Most insects are easy to draw and usually quite recognizable. However, drawing an ant can be more challenging. They don't have anything special (unlike the bee, which is yellow and black or the caterpillar who is drawn with so many small legs) and representing this cute insect properly is more difficult.

How to draw an ant

Step 1

Let's proceed with the creation of a beautiful cartoon ant. First, sketch a medium circle to illustrate the head. Then, add a small oval shape below the head to form the top of the body. Finally, draw a similar shape (but slightly larger) below the first one.

Step 2

Continue working on your ant by adding the legs on the bottom. You need to draw two lines and two circular shapes (the top part only) to create these elements properly.

Next, repeat the same technique to create four more additional arms. This time, you can use complete circles. Everything is symmetrical in this drawing, but you can draw a fun posture if you prefer.

Step 4

Antennas are created from long curved lines. The eyes and the pupils are represented with large circles. Notice on the illustration below how the pupils are slightly closer to each other.

Finally, you can add a big smile on the face of this happy cartoon character. Also, the creation of oval shapes on the pupils is a good thing if you want to create a more interesting insect.
