Chunky Monkey's Rainforest drawing lessons
There are lots of different species of ants
that live in the rain forest. In Peru, researchers found 42 different
species living in one tree! Our lesson will teach you how to draw
the basic ant. You can make it tiny, or large enough to add detail.
You can make lots of them marching along, or just do a few. A neat
rain-forest ant is called the leaf cutter. Leaf cutters march along
carrying cut pieces of leaves on their backs. They then convert the leaves
into a kind of compost, which cultivates a fungus the ants eat. Not
what you'd want to find on a picnic! Be creative -- there are lots
of fun ways to depict ants.
You can make your ant in three sections. This is the bottom part of the body. Kind of looks like a beetle, don't
we've added the middle section. The lines and stripes give it a more rounded,
To finish it off, we've added a head with
antennas, a round eye, and three legs on each side of the body. You can color in the top of the body as we've done
here, or just leave it striped if you like.
