How to Draw a Bee – An Introduction
How to create a bee drawing step-by-step. Bees are one of the most recognized insects around, and people tend to feel pretty fondly about them because of their role in pollinating plants and crops. So if you’re an artist looking for inspiration, here are some steps you can follow to create a bee drawing that will allow you to capture all the elegance of this flying insect.
The body of A Bee
Begin with an oval that is taller than it is wide and uses light, smooth strokes when you draw. Fill in your oval at least halfway; it will be easier if you have something to refer back to later. Once you have your shape, take your line tool (make sure it’s set on fill) and draw lines from top to bottom on both sides of your bee body.
These lines should start off thin but widen toward the middle of your drawing so they look like wings. Make sure these wings are big enough for each side of your bee drawing to touch each other when you connect them!
The Head of the Bee
Add a small circle near where your circle for its head will go; make sure there is about an inch between them. This will be its face. Use your eraser tool to erase any stray marks or points until you have a nice round face. Add two dots below your face for eyes and one dot above for a mouth, then erase any stray marks or points around these shapes.
The first thing that you are going to want to draw is going to be two small circles with two strokes. These circles are going to be used as guidelines for drawing out each of your bee’s antennae. Try and make sure that they have even spacing so they look nice when you get done with them.
It is important that you do not rush through any of these steps as rushing will only end up making your bee look sloppy.
The Legs Drawing of a Bee
We can move on to drawing out our wings and legs. You will want to draw out four long lines across your paper in order to help give yourself some sort of guide for where you are going to place all of your legs. You should try and make sure that none of these lines overlap too much as having overlapping lines could cause issues later on when we go into coloring our bee.
Now that you have drawn out four long lines, it is now time for us to draw out all of our legs in between those lines. As you can see, I drew out eight legs but there is no reason why you cannot draw out more or less if you wish to. Once again, it is important that you do not rush through any of these steps as rushing will only end up making your bee look sloppy.
- When you’re ready to add color, start with your darkest tone and work down to your lightest one. If you do it in reverse (light to dark), you can end up with muddy colors that get lost in each other.
- Pay attention: Going over an area too many times will make all of your hard work go away so try and keep that from happening! It might take a few tries before you find a style that works for you, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different approaches.
- Remember: Practice makes perfect!

Important Facts about BEE
- Bees are social insects and live in colonies or hives.
- The colony is organized into castes, with the queen bee being the reproductive leader, and worker bees being responsible for foraging, cleaning, and caring for the hive.
- Honeybees are responsible for pollinating a large portion of the world’s food crops.
- Bees communicate with each other through the use of “dance language” to indicate the location of food sources.
- The decline in bee populations, known as colony collapse disorder, is a major concern due to the crucial role bees play in pollination and the potential impact on food production.
- Some species of bees, such as the bumblebee, do not produce honey but they are also important pollinators.
- Bees are also considered an indicator of the health of the environment because they are sensitive to changes in the ecosystem.
