Step 1: To draw a ladybug, begin with the pronotum. This looks like a long curved line like a hill, connected to a large, wide "W" shaped line.

Step 2: Draw two dark circles below the pronotum for the eyes.

Step 3: Connect the eyes with a small head. This looks like a much smaller, stretched "W" shape.

Step 4: Draw the mouth part by drawing an oval connected to the two points of the head.

Step 5: To draw the antennae, begin on the head below each eye, adding several small circles on top of one another as they extend away from the head.

Step 6: Add the pattern to the back of the pronotum by drawing two squiggle "W" shaped lines, one within the other.
