How to draw a May Bug(cockchafer) tutorial

Let`s learn how to draw a may bug.

Cockhafer

Have you ever seen a may bug? In my childhood in may these beetles were flying in flocks and  eating very hard the foliage from trees. But years have passed and now  in spring I meet one or two of them.

Let us learn how to draw such a rare bug.

First draw with a pencil the outlines in general.

This bug is quite large – up to 3.5 inches. The structure is quite typical for beetles. When viewed from above, appears not so  oval,  but more rectangular-box-shaped.May bug -cockhafer drawing

The pronotum has the shape of a knight’s shield and very convex.  On strongly bent head we see black eyes and antennae with “leaves”. The legs  are of usual structure, like all insects: thigh – shin – foot. Front legs pointing forward, the middle pair and the rear-to-back.
