Hey guys, I hope you are all having fun with todays tutorials. Up next I have a really pretty lesson that will teach you guys "how to draw a butterfly on a flower", step by step. As you know I have drawn a lot of butterflies in the past so this one is no different. I actually had a pretty hard time trying to think what type of butterfly I wanted to draw on the flower. Ultimately I chose to go with a butterfly that looks a lot like the monarch. The flower is a pretty reddish orange, with various petals. As for the tutorial, it should be pretty simple to replicate because I made sure that the steps where drawn to be easy to follow. Well, I guess that's all. Drawing butterflies is always fun so have fun drawing a butterfly on a flower. Peace out and have fun!
