I love drawing cute kawaii food and animals.
These make perfect drawing projects for kids because they can stick these drawings on refrigerators or in their notebooks.
In this post, I will show you how to draw a cute kawaii bee in this step-by-step guide so that you can easily make a cute kawaii bee drawing!
You can check out my other kawaii tutorials here.
Whether you’re a kid or an adult learning how to draw, these steps are extremely easy to follow; let’s get started!
I’ll even show you how to color the little bee; here’s what you’ll learn to draw:
But you can use any tool – a pen and paper or color pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.
How to draw a cute kawaii bee – Easy Step by step instructions
The bee is very small, so we will use very simple shapes to draw the little kawaii bee.
We will first draw a simple oval shape.
This will be the whole bee’s body.
Next, we are going to draw the stripes of the bee.
The face is going to be on the left side of this drawing.
So, close to the middle of the bee’s body, draw 2 stripes like this – sort of like concentric semi-circles. This will be a brown stripe on the bee’s body – we will color it later.
Let’s add one more stripe on the bee’s bottom. We’ll leave a little space and draw one more line like this at the bottom of the bee.
Take your time to draw this cute kawaii bee – there is no rush.
You can even print this guide out and trace the steps so that it’s easy for you to draw the bee.
Now, let’s draw the face.
I’m going to draw 2 small eyes and a “u” shaped mouth in the middle of the eyes.
This is a standard kawaii face for anyone who wants to draw cute kawaii faces on animals or food.
Let’s draw the little wings.
On top of the bee in the middle of the bee’s body, we’re going to draw 2 small tear drop shapes – these will be the bee’s wings.
Now, we’re nearly done. We just need to add the final details. You can also check out these books if you’re looking to learn to draw more kawaii animals.
Now, let’s draw the sting and the legs – these are the typical bee characteristics.
We will draw a small pointy triangle near the bee’s bottom – this will become the bee’s sting.
And draw small legs at the bottom of the bee. You don’t have to draw all 4 since 1 is behind the bee. Just make the legs as simple as possible.
This will make your bee look very cute and kawaii – the idea is to keep the shapes very simple.
Easy, isn’t it?
We’ve just finished learning how to draw a cute kawaii bee.
Now, we can move to color the bee.
Let’s begin with a mild yellow color. Just color the bee’s body yellow. Any yellow will do! You can even color the bee a lemon yellow.
Next, color the stripes a nice, dark chocolate brown.
Don’t forget to color the legs and beesting too!
Next, color the wings light blue. This will add some color to your honeybee.
Lastly, you can add 2 cute pink blush spots to your bee to give it that extra cute kawaii effect.
I do this for most of my drawings!
And we’re finished!
Remember, you can color your bee any color you want!
Tadaa! We’ve just learned how to draw and color a cute kawaii bee
