Hey, what's up? It's Chris, and today we're going to be learning how to draw a swarm. Now, I'm going to draw a swarm of bees. So first, we're going to start with little dots right, we're coming out. Basically what a swarm is is a group of anything, bees, locusts, flies, birds, it's whatever. There are so many of them in a group that it creates, it's like a cloud. It looks like one whole mass but actually it's a bunch of small insects, small birds, medium birds, whatever. So now we'll switch to a bigger marker and they're smaller because you're seeing them from a distance. Then, as they're getting closer, the dots are bigger. Then we'll get back to these little ones and you just put little dots in between those because they're behind, they're still around. They're all flying together, it's just the big ones are closer to you know what I mean and then you know you'll see some that are even bigger than those. And these are just circles as well. Then you can go behind with the green, the yellow and just add the little lines on this side, give a little bit of detail to them and there are still some little ones in the back too. After all it is a swarm. See how it comes together? And that's basically it. A swarm of bees. I'm Chris and this is how you draw a swarm. Be careful, don't get stung.
