How To Draw An Ant

Today’s tutorial will be over how to draw an ant. Ants are found on every continent on Earth, aside from Antarctica. So needless to say, they are pretty much unavoidable. However, if you’ve ever wanted to draw one of these little buggers, today’s your day.


What you’ll need:

The first step in drawing your ant is to map out three shapes for the head and body. One large circle for the ant’s head, a thin oval for the midsection, and the largest shape, an oval for the abdomen.

Just like all insects, ants have six legs, three on each side. We first are going to draw the legs that are facing the viewer.

Draw these in two parts, one small section that directly connects to the body, and points horizontally outward. And the other much longer section that stretches down to the ground.

To draw the rest of the ant’s legs, repeat the same process for the other side.

The main difference here is that the opposite legs should be a little shorter than the legs facing the viewer. This will give the illusion that they are further away.

Now we need to draw in the details of our ant’s head. Luckily enough, ants have very simple head structures.

Two very tiny eyes that sit on each edge of the ants head, with two large jaws at the end of its head.

Draw you ant’s two long antennae between the eyes and jaws, and its head is done.

At this point, your ant is pretty much completely drawn. All that is left to do is to add a few lines that run around each segment of the ant’s body, and add a few coarse hairs.

That’s that! Hopefully you have enjoyed this tutorial. Don’t forget to comment and like us on Facebook.
