Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Bee" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle as a guide for the upper part of the bee's body or thorax. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw an oval on the left as a guide for the bee's head. The oval should be placed lower than the first circle, and it should be a bit shorter in length.
Step 3: Draw two circles as the first part of the guide to draw the back portion of the bee's body or abdomen. The circles should gradually get smaller. They should also be placed gradually lower. The four shapes should end up forming a bit of an arc.
Step 4: Finish off the guide for the bee's abdomen by connecting the two circles. On the right side, draw a couple of lines that resemble a triangle.
Step 5: Draw a long U-shaped arc that connects the bee's thorax and abdomen and serves as a guide for the wings.
