An easy step by step tutorial on how to draw a rose for beginners.
This is a more simplified version of a rose, to make the drawing process more easy and fun for everyone.
I hope this inspires you to try drawing a rose for yourself, and that even things that look complicated to draw aren’t as difficult as they appear to be.
How to Draw a Rose: Easy Step by Step Tutorial
Step 1: Draw a circle or oval lightly. It’s okay if it’s not perfect – It’s just going to be a guideline and will be erased in the end.
Step 2: Draw a line going diagonally connecting two points of the circle like above. It’s okay if the line is not completely straight. In fact, it’ll make the petals more real if they aren’t completely straight.
Step 3: Draw another line starting from around the middle of the line we drew before connecting with another point in the circle.
This is the pattern we are going to continue for the rest of the steps. And just like before, these lines do not have to be perfectly straight.
Step 4: Draw another line from the middle of the line before to the circle.
Step 5: Keep repeating this all the way around the outside edge of the circle.
Step 8: Finally, we will connect the line to the first line we drew at the beginning. This time I didn’t do it completely in the center of the line, and that’s okay.
Step 9: We are going to keep drawing lines in a similar fashion, connecting to the center of two different “petals”.
Step 10: Keep creating the petals. You don’t have to worry too much about the location along the line where you should end the line… Just end it wherever it feels right to you.
Step 11: Keep connecting the lines, from the middle of one line to another… Until you get all the way to the center of the rose.
Step 12: This is what your rose drawing should look like after connecting the lines together. This is how the center of the rose will look. Now, we are going to work on the outer petals of the rose.
Step 13: Lightly draw the shape of the outer petals using a semi-circle. This will also be a guideline that will mostly be erased in the end.
Step 14: We are going to draw the outer petal shape of our first rose petal. Make the edges round and extend it a little outside the guidelines we made earlier for the general shape of the rose.
Step 15: Erase any lines that are inside of the outer petal that we drew in the previous steps.
Step 16: We are going to draw the second outer petal of the rose now. Create a round petal shape using the guidelines we drew before like the picture above.
Step 17: Erase any lines inside the petal.
Step 18: Continue doing this around the rose to create all the outer petals.
Step 19: Erase any lines that are inside of the outer petals.
Step 20: Now we are going to draw the curve of the rose petals. Draw an “S” shape like shown above in the first outer petal.
Step 21: Again, draw this “S” shaped curve for the second petal as well.
Step 22: Draw similar “S” shaped lines all the way around on the outer petals of the rose drawing.
Step 23: I decided to tighten the rose flower towards the bottom to accentuate the curve of the outer rose petals.
Step 24: Erase the prior-made lines that we don’t need anymore for the overall rose shape.
Step 25: Draw the rose’s receptacle: The part of the rose where we will draw the sepals and where the flower bud is created.
Step 26: Draw the sepals of the rose. This is what used to cover the rose bud before the rose bloomed.
Step 27: Erase the unnecessary lines around the sepals.
Step 28: Draw the stem of the rose and you are done with your rose drawing!
