As you now I haven’t uploaded any insect tutorials lately, and because of that I thought I would show you guys "how to draw a wasp", step by step. Now the reason why I chose to draw a wasp is the fact that my seven year old sister was stung by one of these bugs over the summer. She described to me what the pain felt like and all I have to say is I felt bad. The area where the wasp stung her was not only red, it also formed a big welt on her leg. Now wasps look a lot like bees, they are just a bit slender and longer then a bee. They kind of have a mixed appearance between a bee and a hornet to be honest with you. There is a wide variety of wasp species, and among them is the stinging wasp. Now, the females are the only ones that have a stinger, and male stinging wasps do not. Therefor, if you get stung by a wasp, you most likely got bit by a female. The strange thing is, wasps are not known to sting humans at all. They only do this out of defense which means the one that stung my sister must have felt threatened. Did you know that if you are hypoallergenic, just one wasp sting can kill you. Anyway, I wanted this drawing to convey how people view this insect. Not only do we freak out or scream if there is a bee in the car when driving, we also flip out if that insect turns out to be a wasp as well. I think you will enjoy this tutorial on "how to draw a wasp". All you have to do is complete a few steps, and then your done. I have three more submissions coming your way so stay tuned in to see what they will be. Adios people, and have a happy drawing day.
