Fly with ease using this fun tutorial on how to draw a butterfly with this short video drawing lesson! All you have to do is grab a pencil, a piece of paper and an eraser and start reproducing this simple cartoon character that was created using simple basic shapes.

All elements of the character are made with simple patterns and lines. If you have trouble drawing the butterfly, don't hesitate to use the written version found on the bottom of this page.

As a small bonus, I invite you to watch the whole video to enjoy a little animated version of the cartoon character near the end. Sometimes it can be fun to see a live version of the character that was available in a drawing tutorial.
