Step 1

Start by sketching the scarab’s head. Use curves to surround irregular shapes. Note the three bulges in the front of the head.

Step 2

Next, outline the chest or middle part of the beetle. Use a long curve to surround the irregular shape.

Step 3

Use a long curve to surround an abnormally shaped abdomen, leaving a small space between the belly and chest. Connect two body segments with short lines.

Step 4

Stick semi-circular shapes to the sides of the head to show the scarab’s eye. Then, contour each segment with curves at the edges. Also notice, the curve extends between the abdomen. This shows that a hole in the beetle’s shell allows it to spread its wings.

Step 5

Draw the leg of the beetle. Stretch a curve and fold it back over itself to form the first leg section for each leg. Then stretch another curve and duplicate it back to itself. Finally, draw the scarab beetle’s leg. Elongate a curve from the bottom of the leg. Then, draw a serrated zigzag line to connect the opposite side to the leg. These serrations allow the bug to cling to and climb.

Step 6

Draw the legs of the opposite side. For each of the two leg sections, stretch a curve and fold it back over itself. For the foot, widen a curve. Then, connect its end to the foot using a serrated zigzag line.

Step 7

Draw the serrated teeth or the handles of the dung beetle. For each one, stretch a long curve from the front of the head. Then, use a series of curves that meet at gentle or serrated points to form the inner face of the screw.

Step 8

Draw arches, appendages near the mouth for touch and taste. For each touch, stretch a short curve and double it back to itself. Repeat this three times with each palpation. Contour the jaw axes with curves.

Step 9

Beard drawing. For each antenna, extend a pair of curves from the side of the head. Connect them at the ends with a set of serrated lines.

Step 10

Color your scarab. They come in a variety of colors, including black, brown, and green.
