A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing

  • Nothing too tricky but the petals are a lot of curves and swirls. The very first step looks like a side-ways “S”.

Let’s Draw A Rose – Step By Step

Step 1: Draw an “S” sideways. This is the outline of the biggest petal of our rose.
Step 2: Add a little wavy line on top of it as shown. Take note that the left tip should not touch the edge.
Step 3: Let’s draw the side of the large petal by adding a little slanted line downwards.
Step 4: Create a semicircle on the top with the edge of it touching the tip of the first petal you made.
Step 5: Add two curves on both sides of the semicircle you made. The one on the left is smaller than the right curve (which is connected to the edge of your semicircle).
Step 6: Draw another petal connected on the right curve. You can start from the middle of this and end it on the common point with the semicircle.
Step 7: Draw a line with the edge curved towards the other tip of the first petal you made.
Step 8: Let’s add another petal from the back portion of the rose. Look at the guide above.
Step 9: Add two strokes of curvy lines on the petals marked above.
Step 10: Now time to work on the sepals. In the middle part of the large space below the rose, draw the two curved lines as illustrated.

Note that they should be a little bit closer to the edges of the petals.
Step 11: Complete the two sepals to form like tiny leaves.
Step 12: Add two more leaf-like drawings on each side, touching the edge of the petals. This will complete our sepal.
Step 13: From the middle of the sepals, draw a curvy line downwards to start forming our stem.
Step 14: Follow the another stroke of line just parallel to the first one. This should be a little bit longer to complete the stem.
Step 15: Add an oval shape with a little circle in the middle at the tip of your stem. This will make it appear like it was nicely trimmed.

Let’s also start making the leaves by adding that curved line on the stem as guide.
Step 16: Draw one leaf downwards.
Step 17: Draw another smaller leaf above it.
Step 18: Add some little thorns.
Step 19: Time to add a cute face! Just make two round circles for the eyes. Add two circles on the upper left side (to which they will remain white) – one is smaller.

Make one stroke to on each side to make the eyelash.

Add a little smiley almost in between the two eyes.
Step 20: Almost done – just color your pretty rose and you’re all set! Sweet!
