I love watching the butterflies every spring and summer while going out on walks – So I decided to create a bunch of butterfly drawings!
Butterflies are a great subject to draw for both beginner artists and advanced artists: Whether you want to practice drawing lines and shapes or you want to capture their delicate intricate wing designs.
I tried to include various styles and butterfly drawing ideas so that no matter what level of drawing skill you are at, hopefully you can find something that sparks your creative interest to start drawing!
Drawing Tips: First start off with a pencil sketch. Once you are satisfied with your sketch, you can go over with a ink pen or other medium that you prefer. Erase the pencil sketch underneath once the ink dries – And you have yourself a finished drawing!
Above all, enjoy the process of drawing!
Drawing is a great way to relax the mind and mindlessly do something for the fun of it 🙂
Don’t worry about perfection.
The more you draw, the more your drawing skill and style will develop.
Also, thank you to all my wonderful readers and doodlers who have tried my drawings and have also left me such kind comments! I appreciate everyone <3
Alrighty, let’s get to our butterfly drawings now! I hope you enjoy!

9. Monarch Butterfly
Monarch butterflies can be pretty complicated to draw so here is a step-by-step drawing tutorial of how to draw a monarch butterfly.
I hope you find it helpful!

10. Butterfly Wings
I’ve included a lot of simple butterfly doodles so here is one that is a little more realistic.
11. Trail of Stars
I created this drawing inspired by The Butterfly Effect.
Even something as small and miniscule as a flap of a butterfly’s wings can create something big.
12. Girl and Butterfly
Here is an adorable drawing to try out of a girl and a butterfly.
13. Butterflies with 3’s
You can also draw a butterfly using the number 3 for the wings.
14. Blue Butterflies
Blue is a very rare color in nature – so let’s draw some blue butterflies next!
15. Blue Morpho Butterfly
Here is a more realistic version of the blue butterfly drawing.
I’ve always seen these blue butterflies in art and photos but I never knew they were called Blue Morpho butterflies until now.
They are so beautiful and I hope to see one in real-life one day 🙂
16. Fluttering Butterflies
Let’s draw a bunch of butterflies fluttering above a girl’s head next.
17. Cat and Butterfly
Here is a drawing I drew from my other blog post 23 Easy Cat Drawing Ideas.
18. Attracting Butterflies
Here is another aesthetic drawing idea of someone holding up a flower to attract some butterflies.
19. Luna Moth
Moths aren’t butterflies, but moths can be just as pretty!
Here is a drawing of a Luna Moth flying to the Moon from my other blog post 30 Easy Moon Drawing Ideas.
20. Butterflies from a Book
