2
vertical line.Check her total length of the body of the butterfly.Divide the segment into two roughly equal parts (the bottom may be slightly longer than the upper).The top section of about 4 parts.
Spend the center line and divide it into parts
3
Draw in the top segment of a round head.The line may be wrong, so it is not necessary to use a compass.In the middle of the oval, draw so that you carried out a vertical line has its long axis.The width of the oval is approximately equal to the width of the head, but can be a little more or a little less.At the bottom of the draw a long isosceles triangle.The tip of the tail may be slightly cut off or rounded.
Draw the outline of wings
