1. Introduction to This Course and Supplies You Will Need: Hey, friends. How are you? I hope you're having a great day today. I'd like to welcome you to this course. This is my garden bugs course designed especially for beginners. So you do not have to have any experience at all Withdrawing to be successful in this course, I'd like to go for the supplies and the materials that you will need in this course. The first thing that you'll need is paper. I just use copy paper from my printer. It works very well, but you can use any paper at all Any old scrap of paper that you confined. He'll also need, uh, something to draw with. So I like to use a Sharpie marker because it offers a really dark line. But you can use other things as well. You can use a pencil. You can use oil pastels. You can use crowns, you can use color pencils or you can use markers or you can use a combination of these different materials. I'm so excited that you are going to be following along with me in this course. Please continue to watch this video to see examples of the designs that we're going to make today. See, in a minute 2. Let's Draw a Butterfly!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great D today. Today we will be creating at Butterfly. So let's get started. The first thing that you want to do is make the butterflies head, so it's just going to be a circle coming out from the circle. Let's make a couple of antenna. I like to make mine with a little swirl at the end. Now let's make a nice round I So for this butterfly, we're going to make his body go diagonally. So we're going to make a diagonal curved line going this way and then another one coming this way. And did you see how I crossed out the bottom? That just creates a little bit more interest. Now I'm going to double up this first line just like that. Now I'm going to create our butterfly's wings and they're going to be a little bit fancy, so they're going to be a little bit curvy. I'm going to come out and I'm going to come up like this. So I come out and they come up and then I come down. So it's a curved line coming up in a curved line, coming down. That's further wing. That's closest to us and then for the wing. That's a little bit further away from us. We're going to go like this. So it's a curved line coming up and a curdling coming down because the butterfly is playing this way for the bottom part of his swing. Just going to make a couple of curved lines. That's the one in the front, and then this is the one in the back. Now you can add any designs that you like into the interior up your butterfly wings. So I think what I'm going to do is keep it simple. I'm just going to make some curved lines, some loops, so I've made a straight line with a curved line on the top. It's like an upside down U. And then I'm going to make some pedals on my flower underneath only like this. That will make another one here a little bit higher. Remember, if you're hitting something with your marker, then you just make sure that you jump over it and then come back up so it looks like the other object. Whatever it ISS is in the front, and I think I'll make one more, and maybe it'll go this way a little bit. And then let's put some stems on her flowers coming out from the bottom. I think what I'll do now is I will make a couple of clouds in the sky around my butterfly, maybe one up here, because I have a little bit of space to fill. That's what I do. I just look at my picture after I have the main objects in it, and I decide what needs to go in there so it could be a cloud. It could be a a small bird flying in the background or the sun. I just look at my picture or my painting or my drawing. And then I decided that time. I hope you enjoyed this lesson. I'll see you next time. 3. Let's Draw a Ladybug on a Leaf!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be creating a ladybug on a leaf. So let's get started. We're going to start by making our leave first. And we'd like to make it really nice and big and pretty much filling up the whole piece of paper. So let's come down with a curved line and come up with a curved line that goes to a point. Now we have a space. Where are ladybug can sit. So to make a ladybug, we're just going to make a circle that's almost complete all the way around. Let me show you what I mean when you're making your circle going to go around like a regular circle. But before you completely close up your cervical, you're going to stop. That's going to be the back side of our lady Bug. Now what you're going to do is you're going to make a V here, and then you are going to make a straight line like this. This is going to be one wing of her ladybug and this is going to be the other wing. Now let's close up the space. This is the ladybugs body right in here. And these are the ladybugs wings. Like I just told you for your ladybugs head, it's going to be an upside down letter. You and I like to put a couple of little eyes in here, so I'm going to make to curve lines and then some eyes. And then I'm just going to make some little antenna sticking out this way. It's kind of funny that it looks this way, but it because it's a cartoon you can do your intent is anyway that you'd like. Some people like to make him out this way, and you might choose to do that as well. Now let's make some circles for her spots. And remember, if you make a circle on this side, you need to make a circle in the same spot on this side. This is called symmetrical, so I'm going to make another one here, here, maybe one hair here, and I think I'm going to put one more. Maybe about right here, right here. So I have five circles on this side and then five circles on this side. Let's put some little beat. This ladybug has six legs and feet. And now what we can do is we could put in a little bit more detail on relief now that we know where our ladybug is. So let's make a vein for our relief. You want to double that up, go ahead and do that. It will come out this way. And then, if you may like to make more like this, more little veins on your leaf to give it a little bit more detail and then maybe even a stem down here. There you go. There's your ladybug. I hope that you had fun with this lesson. I'll see you next time. 4. Let's Draw a Mosquito!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be making a mosquito. So let's get started. The first thing that will want to do is make a circle for our mosquitoes head. Now we're going to make two straight lines up, and then we're going to make some eyes for our mosquito. Her eyes were going to be pretty big, so let's make some round circles with some dots inside. Now we're going to make a very long letter B, and we're going to attach a body onto our mosquito, and that's a long backwards letter. C. Let's put some wings on our mosquito, and those were just going to be some curve lines. And then let's put some legs. Mosquitoes have six legs, so here we go. One, 23 and then remember, we need to make the back legs as well. Four five, six. And did you notice how on the front legs, I made sure that they went over a body and for the back legs, they went behind the body. Let's put a few little stripes on our mosquito, and then I wonder what kind of background we can have. I'm thinking I'm just going to make some clouds around him that will show that he's flying in the sky. You can do whatever you'd like those faras a background or your mosquito Already. Friends. I hope that you enjoyed this lesson. I'll see you next time. 5. Let's Draw a Bookworm!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be creating a bookworm. So let's get started. The first thing that we're going to want to do is make a circle towards the bottom of our piece of paper, not all the way at the bottom, but about right here, about 2/3 of the way down or 1/3 of the way up. We're going to make a circle and then attached to this circle. We're going to make some more circles coming up this way. And as we're making our circles, they're going to get smaller and smaller and smaller because we are going to know that our book Warm is moving away from us. So let me show you what I mean. Let's make another circle here, but because part of it is hiding behind this initial circle, it's going to be not a complete circle. So another circle another circle and notice that my circles are getting smaller and smaller and smaller. They're also kind of going off to the side a little bit, so it looks like our bookworm is curving a little bit. Let's go back to the front of our bookworm. This very first circle is going to be our bookworms face, So let's make some eyes and then let's make some glasses for our park warm. So some circles bookworms loved to wear glasses and then an upside down U to connect these two pieces of glass together. Let's put some lines for the arms of her glasses. And then let's also put some lines like this for a little antenna and then maybe a little smile for a bookworm because he loves to read books. Let's make a book for our bookworm. It's Our book is going to go down here in the way that you make a book Is this. You make a B, Then you go down a little bit and make another V and make sure these two B's line up. You connect these two lines and then you put two lines right here. This is the spine of her book, and this is the front of her book, and this is the back of our book. We need to foot put a few pages inside of our book, and those are just straight lines and let's make a picture on the front of her book. Maybe a little happy face. All right, so this is the book that our book Warm is going to be reading. And what we're going to do now is we're going to make a background for our bookworm. He is going to be on the floor. Yeah, Let's see. I'm going to start maybe right here with a straight line jump over my bookworm just like that. Then I'm going to make another line jump over my bookworm just like that. This is going to be the floor. So I'm going to make some lines, but they're not going to be solid lines. So I'm going to have a very light touch with my marker just like this, because I wanted to seem like it's some wood flooring. Then I can create at a background for my wall, so maybe I'll make some swirls for the background. Maybe I'll even add a few little dots in there for a little bit more interest. So basically it looks like my book Warm is reading a book on the floor of his house, and he looks pretty happy already. I hope you enjoy this lesson. I'll see you next time 6. Let's Draw a Rosebud!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be creating a rose. But so let's get started. The first thing that you'll want to dio is make a small upside down V just like that. Now, from that be what we're going to do is make a curve line coming out this way and a curved line coming out this way. Now we're going to close thes two curved lines up with more curved lines down like this down like this and then a small curve line right here. Now we're going to go back up to this space right here, and we're going to make our actual rose. But so what we're going to Dio is we're going to make a curve line coming up and then a curve line coming down inside this shape. We're just going to make a few lines because our rose but is closed up. So we're going to start at this tip right here, and we're going to make a curve lying down, and then we're going to start about right here, and we're going to make a curved line and then one more curve line like this Because remember our rose, but is closed up. Now what we're going to do is make the stem in the base. So for this area, you're just going to make a shape that looks like this. It's like kind of like a fancy letter you and then for the stem would come down and then we come down. And then if you'd like to make a leaf, you make a small stem for the leave, and then you come up and then you come up and then we put the being. I hope you enjoy this lesson. Thank you for watching. 7. Let's Draw a Fly!: Hey, friends, How's it going? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be creating a fly. So let's get started. The first thing that we're going to do is we're going to make a circle almost. It's almost actually like an oval shape. If you'd like to make it a little bit elongated this way, underneath that, we're going to make another shape that looks like an oval. And then underneath that, we're going to make a shape that's a little bit more pointy at the bottom like that. So this is going to be the body of our fly and then the head of her fly. Now we're going to go back up to the head, and we're going to make some lines that look like this. It's almost like a forward see in a backward See and inside those lines were going to make some straight lines, and these are going to represent the flies eyes. So after we put those and then we're going to come down so it makes some small squares in each of these shapes that we've created just like that, So these air that our fly's eyes let's make some of those little I don't even know what they're called that. I know that flies. Do you have this feelers? Maybe. And then we're going to move to the midsection of his body. Let's make, um, a couple of lines that come out like this, and then they kind of go in a little bit like this. Now, at the end of these legs were going to put this some hooks just like that. So if you look at a fly really closely, you can see that they have a little, well, hooks on the end of their legs. I don't know if they're actually hooks. That would be a really good question. Let's make some wings. So we're going to come out and down and then back up so out and down and come back up. Close that up there a little bit. Now let's make some current lines on his body and some straight lines down here. Now flies have six legs, so we're going to make another pair here. So it's the double lines and then we come down. And don't forget the little hooks. And then the last pair with the little hooks so straight line. Straight line, straight line. Coming in in a small hook in the end. All right, so for the background for your fly, you could do anything that you like. Mm. I'm wondering. I think I'm just going to have kind of a crazy background. I think I'm just going to have some zigzag lines going like this because flies could get a little bit crazy. Can't pay. This just adds a little bit of detail, But you can certainly make a different type of a background if you like. If you want more. There already. I hope that you enjoyed this drawing lesson. We'll see you next time. 8. Let's Draw a Dragonfly!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be creating a dragon fly. So let's get started. The first thing that we're going to do is we're going to make a circle or are Dragonflies head and above that circle we're going to make to lines with little swirls at the end. Those are going to be our antenna. And then let's move down to our Dragonflies face and we're going to make two curved lines inside our circle, and we're going to put dots inside of those lines, and those are going to be our eyes to our dragon plight. Let's make his midsection, which is, I guess it probably looks like an long gated see that's upside down. And then for the lower part of his body, we make a curve line and then another curve line and see how it crosses at the bottom. Let's put a little bit of detail inside of his body. You can do anything that you want here. I'm just going to make some lines. Now let's go back up to his midsection and let's make some really long wings. Let's make four of them two on each side. So basically, you come up your curve around and you come back down. Go out, curve around and you come back in now for around our dragon fly. I think I'm going to just put some very large daisies. Daisy is a type of flower. So the way that I make daisies is I start with a center circle, and then I just make pedals all the way around, and they're really long elongated sees. So I'm going to make some larger ones and some smaller ones. Kind of like my dragon fly is flying around in the garden. Oh, do you see how I ran into that flower? I skipped right over it. There, I did it again. So it looks like this flower is in front of this. Left lower. It looks like this flower is in front of this flower as well. And sometimes I almost go off the page. So what I dio is I just pretend like I keep going and then I bring my pedal back in. So let me make a couple more here going to go pretty quickly. If you can think of different types of flowers that you'd like to make. Go ahead. Do that as well. Here we go. I actually think that I might make a couple of flowers up here to fill in a little space and maybe one more over here. Flowers all around. There we go. I hope you like this lesson. I'll see you next time. 9. Let's Draw a Bee!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great D today. Today we will be creating up be. So let's get started. The first thing that you'll want to do is make a circle that is going to be Arby's head. The next thing that we're going to do is make a body. I'm going to make the body of might be a little bit diagonal meeting going to the side a little. You could make your straight up and down if you like, but I'm going to make mine a little bit to the side. So we come out and we go in. We come out and we go in and this is going to be the stinger of RB. Now we're going to bet. Go back up to his face and let's add some eyes and a cute little smile. Let's add some antenna and then I always like to add some stripes or are be that way when we're coloring or are we're painting RB. We can paint it black and yellow, black and yellow, so black, yellow bet black, yellow, black, yellow, black. Let's put a few little legs, three on each side and then some wings. So we're going to start our wings like a backwards letter C and then a forwards letter. See, things were pretty big. And then our bottom wings are just a little bit smaller. Pretty much the same shape. How cute is that? So what we can do in the background for this is we can just put some really giant flowers because bees love flowers. They love to be in the garden. Did you see how this flower went off of the page? That's okay. That happens all the time with artists. You just have to pretend like it continues off of the page and then bring your marker back back around like that. It actually looks kind of cool. Okay, maybe I'll put a smaller one here. Here we go. I think what I'm going to do is I'm just going to finish this drawing and put these daisies all around because I'm really liking how this looks. I'm gonna speed up this video and I'll be back in just a second. Already. Friends. There we go. We have a bee in a garden and he looks pretty happy to be there. I hope you enjoy this lesson. I'll see you next time. Bye. 10. Let's Draw a Tomato!: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be creating a tomato. So let's get started. The first thing that we're going to make is make the top part of our tomato, so that's going to be a star shape. So let's make a line and another line. So it's an upside down V and we're going to come out with another line this way in this way , and then we're going to come down and come down and then we're going to come out, come out and then we're going to come in and then we're going to connect these two lines together. That's the top part of our tomato. Let's make the actual tomato down here, so we're going to make a shape that looks like this. It's like an opal, and so this is the part of the tomato that we ate. Now I think it will be cute if we make some eyes on our tomato because this is going to be a cartoon tomato. So any type of eyes that you'd like to make would be just fine. And we can also make a cute little smile coming out of the top of our tomato. Let's make a small oval that we fell in with our marker. And then let's make a stem attached to this stem. What we can do is we can make the potato plant so we can start at the bottom and it doesn't have to be super straight. We can go like this, and then we can create some leaves for a tomato plant. It's up to you. However, you'd like to make leaves. And if even you see a leaf on your tomato plant, maybe you could take a look at it and draw that type of of a leaf. If you like, we can make some foliage down here of the bottom, and then, if you like to put some, maybe clouds in the sky or maybe some butterflies or some birds, it's completely up to you. I think I'm going to make a few little clouds in the sky behind my tomato. Maybe a small one right here. A small cloud. There you go, there's your tomato. I hope you like him. I'll see you next time 11. Let's Draw a Snail!: Hey, friends. How are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be making a snail, So let's get started. So the first thing that you want to do is make a long teardrop shape that looks like this. So we have a curved line, we come around another curve line and then we close up. This is going to be our snails head, and this is going to be his tail now. What we're going to do is we're going to make a very large circle that's going to go close to our snails back and inside that circle, we're going to make a swirl. So we're going to start in the middle and we're just going to keep going around and around , and we're not going to touch any other part of our line. Creating swirls takes some practice because you have to go slowly and carefully to be very , very accurate with your swirl. There you go. That's a pretty good swirl. The next thing that we're going to do is make some little antenna in riel snails. They have eyeballs up here, but because this is a cartoon we're making our is a little bit different. Maybe even a small smile for the background. I thought it would be fun if we created maybe a little bit of a garden scene. So down here, you could make some flowers up here. You could make some flowers. It's completely up to you. What I thought that I would do is just create some different huge daisies just like this. So that it looks like our snail is going through a garden. And we're just speed up this video a little bit while I'm adding these flowers already. Friends, I'm back. So it looks like my snail is in a field of little daisies. I think up here. What I'm going to do is I'm just going to make some clouds, some clouds in the sky or my happy snail. I hope you enjoy this lesson. See, next time 12. Let's Draw a Ladybug!: Hey, friends. How are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be creating a ladybug. So let's get started. The first thing that we're going to do is we're going to make a very large upside down you That is going to be the body of our lady Bug. Let's close that up at the bottom with a straight line and then on this side, I'm going to make my ladybugs head. So I'm gonna have a nice round circle and then on top of that circle and going to make some little Internet. I like to make really straight lines with a curb at the top. Now, inside this head, I'm going to make a curved line and a curved line, and I'm going to put a dot in the middle there. And then I think I'm going to make a small smile for my lady bag. Now, ladybugs have dots, so I'm going to make some dots on my lady book. You get to decide how many dots you'd like to make. I think I'm just going to fill up the whole lady back like that. Now, what I would suggest is that you color these in black or any cover color that you'd like. It doesn't have to be black, but ladybugs usually have black dots. I am not going to do that right now because it might take me a while, so I think I'm just going to leave that up to your imagination. And you could do that. Whenever you're ready. Ladybugs have six legs, so you can put the legs going straight across like this. Or you could put them like this, like I dio because this is a cartoon ladybug. You could just pretty much do whatever you'd like. All right, I'm going to make a background for my lady Bug. I'm going to make a line, and I'm going to jump over my ladybug and bring the line out the other side. I'm going to maybe put some flowers down here at the bottom. So curved line with a circle at the top. And then I'd like to put some pedals on my flowers and maybe even a little leaf. Maybe put one here. Don't forget that stem. Maybe one right here. All right. And I think I will put a couple of clouds up in the sky to show that the ladybug is hanging around on a nice spring day. If you couldn't think of anything else that you'd like to put on your during right now, it would be a good idea. Maybe I I want to put more warm or cloud here to do that. Now, before you start coloring or painting already. I hope you enjoyed this project. I'll see you next time.
