Step 1: There are over 1 million species of flies in the world. We will begin our fly by drawing an oval for the head.

Step 2: Next draw a half circle and connect it to the oval to form the fly's thorax.

Step 3: Draw a larger ellipse to make the fly's abdomen. Make sure you angle the ellipse upward.

Step 4: Draw the wings as large flat ellipses. Angle the rear ellipses at a steeper angle than the front ellipse.
