How To Draw A Rose - Step 1

After having your favorite rose image, take a sharpened HB pencil and draw few outward lines from a center. The number of lines must be based on the number of outermost petals. Based on the pink rose image above, you can literally see there are six outermost petals. And the length should be according to the length of the petals.

Now is the best part. Start toning... You can use either a 2B or a 4B grade pencil. If you're a right-handed person, start from the upper left hand side of your drawing. You can rotate your drawing for your easiness. Stroke from inner to outer part of a petal one by one. Stroke the inner part with more pressure from the outer part. This is important so that your drawing becomes real.
