This dragonfly is perfect for an on the job design but still with a colourful and wow effect. It’s elegant and funny at the same time.
Let’s get started!
With a filbert brush paint the dragonfly wings, similar to the butterfly’s but much thinner.
Add with a sponge some white highlights in the centre of the wings.
With a round brush paint the head and body of the dragonfly in the centre of the eyes.
Outline in black the whole design and paint the veins of the wings too. Paint in the head of the dragonfly a tiny smile.
Paint the antennas with a squarish ending and add some white highlights in between the wing veins and on top of head and body. Add a little star on top of one antenna.
Stick a pair of googly eyes on top of the dragonfly’s head and add lipstick for an extra touch.
If you don’t have googly eyes you can paint them of course!
