You know that Dragonflies are very good at zipping around through the air, and they’re able to do this thanks to their four wings. Now, you will start drawing the wings for dragonfly. Extend a long, curved line from the top of the chest. The curve returns to itself until it touches the bottom of the chest, completely enclosing the wings. Dragonfly wings are very thin and have many small details, you need to show that in your work. You will have to use closed curves for the wings then you will decorate the dragonfly’s wings beautifully by drawing different dots on the wings. Repeat this process on the opposite side to form the second wing. Again, using a long, curved line, connect at both ends to the chest. You will continue to draw the lower wing. Again, you’ll extend a long, curved line from the chest, allowing it to duplicate itself back to enclose the shape. Draw the final of four dragonfly wings. Extend a long, curved line from the chest and allow it to duplicate itself back to enclose the shape.
