How to Draw a Rose

Monday, May 19, 2008 |

Here's how to draw a rose, step-by-step. It's really simple. Even with no drawing skills, you should be able to come up with a fairly nice looking rose. And even if you can't, it's the thought that counts, right?

  1. First draw a vertical line, which will be your stem and the foundation for your rose. It should be a pretty straight line, but it's okay if it is not.
  2. Next, draw some thorns coming out of the stem, but not too many. To do this, draw lines upwards coming out of the stem. Then draw a sharp point at the tip of your thorn pointing down.
  3. Now draw a horizontal line with two half-spheres to make the top of the leaf. At the end of the leaf, draw a line that goes back through the leaf and into your step to make the leaf shape. Go ahead a draw a couple more leaves to the side as well.
  4. Make one line going through the center of the leaf, and another smaller line attaching that canter line to the edge of the leaf.
  5. Now start drawing banana shaped leaves at the top of the stem. You can make about 8 of these in different sizes an shapes.
  6. Make two large teardrops on the top of the leafs, and then a few more behind them.
  7. Now you can ad the bud in the middle of the flower, which should be slightly open.
  8. That's it! Now color and shade.
