Why learn to sketch beetles? Well, did you know that approximately 25% of earth’s animal species are beetles?
That’s right, entomologists believe that there are over 350,000 species of beetles in the world. So, it’s likely you’ll encounter one on your nature explorations. They can be found worldwide on every continent except Antarctica, in every habitat and every niche imaginable.
I presented this video and downloadable beetle sketching cheat sheet as part of a Facebook Live tutorial I created (so it’s a little grainy but still useful I believe).
So gather a pencil and paper (or click HERE to download the beetle sketching cheat sheet shown below the video) and follow along as I show you how to sketch beetles. You’ll also learn some fascinating facts about their anatomy along the way. Enjoy!
