Let’s draw a cute flower today with this step-by-step tutorial:
My inspiration for this drawing was to create an illustration for Valentine’s Day.
I wanted to create something simple, but something that projected love, romance, and positive vibes.
It’s my way of saying “Thank You” to you for drawing and creating with me. For being brave and sharing your drawings in our Facebook group, and inspiring me every day to keep going.
This kawaii flower is sending you a hug. Can you feel it? 🙂
Please enjoy it for personal use, and please give credit and link back to this post if you share it with others.
- This drawing is based on a circle shape, but the circle is slightly squished down to make the flower cuter (see step 1).
- Divide the top part of the circle roughly into thirds to create the petals.
- I’ve added a few pencil guidelines, so you can see the structure and the big shapes within this drawing. But you don’t need to draw them, if you don’t want to. Since you know what big makes up this drawing, you will be able to draw it accurately.
