Wow, thank you for the DD! =)





Hello everyone! Welcome to my "How to Draw: Butterflies and Moths Tutorial"! I've spent endless hours, days, weeks, working on this for you.

This is a more complicated flash program than my last one on Jellyfishes. There is a total of 166 pages/frames in this tutorial

There are 6 drawing and coloring demonstrations in this tutorial, there was 12 originally, but I had to make serious cutbacks to meet the file size limit for DeviantArt. So, the other 6 drawings will be added to "How to Draw: Moths and Butterflies Part 2"!


Since my primary information source was Wikipedia, if any of the information I provided is incorrect, please let me know and I'll try to fix it.


I LOVE to see art people make using what they learned from my tutorials! If you do make art, please feel more than welcome to post a link to it.

Thank you everyone!
-Mysticalpchan


[EDIT] Added on a pre-loader that seems to have helped with the problems I had at first. Changed the font size and type so that text won't go off the screen for Windows users. Made fixes to some small typos.
