Flies, when you think of a fly, you think of those annoying insects that surround your food in the summer at cookouts, you think of, how gross cow’s look up close with those flies surrounding their poop, or sitting in your house with a fly swatter waiting for them to land near you to stop that constant buzzing sound when your just trying to relax. Finally, their offspring, maggots have to be by far one of the most disgusting insects ever. Even though flies and maggots are gross, what inspired me to draw this fly was the information I found out about them. Don’t get me wrong; once you know the part flies play in our ecosystem, it’s hard to remember again that they really are a necessary part of our world. There are more than 100,000 different kinds of flies. There accentually found all over the world, even in the coldest parts like Antarctica. When drawing a fly remember it’s basically line art. I only used a regular pencil in my sketch which I later scanned into my computer to color and modify it. The best part of drawing a fly, you can really use your imagination. When starting your sketch there is only two things you need, a pencil and a piece of paper. This tutorial will show you how to draw a fly by using line work and subtle details on the legs. After you’re done, don’t forget to show off your finished work.
