Draw a light horizontal line, which should be as a butterfly flight. On this line, draw a body and a vertical line, which will be used to draw wings. Add horns to your butterfly.

Before drawing a butterfly with a pencil, look at photos and pictures of moths.

And back ones, on the contrary, have more sophisticated outline. Do not forget, that the wings must be symmetric relatively to the butterfly's body.
