1. Introduction: Hi everyone, My name is Oscar and welcome to my formula tutorial videos. In this lesson, I'm going to show you how to draw this lotus flower. 2. Supplies: All you're going to need is a piece of paper and a pencil and a pen and innumerable. So let's get right in. 3. Guidelines: Let's start with the guide fist. Start with a simple circle. And the line right through the middle. Horizontal line, and little lower than the center of the circle. Next, let's draw another circle here. And a smaller one inside is. Lastly, T diagonal lines on about 45-degree life is. 4. Basic Drawing: Now let's start drawing. I'm going to use a pen so you can see better, but you can use a pencil first angle over it with dependent data. We're going to start at the center of the flower. Use the guy in for this one side, the pestle and created last is. Now draw team on both sides inside the circle. I drew a line from the top like this. Then go along the eye. Then the next one goes like this. Using the guide again. Make a little uneven for more natural. Now, we're going to draw two more petals on these diagonal lines. Start from here, outside of the circle. Go down towards the syntactic guide. Then close this line like this. And do the same on the other side. Start from the top of the diagonal line and close. And now we're going to fill this part with a few petals like so. Now we're going to do a petals on the disparate. One on each side. Drew what I saw towards the left like this. Add an extra line for a 3D effect. We will also draw another pesto on the other side. This time a little bit slim. Now we're going to fail this person. The shape of these facilities are pretty much the same as before, but there'll be facing downwards. So let's draw one hey, inside the guide, and another one on the other side from here to the center of the flower. Let's add extra line here to show the curvature of the pestle. And then one more, right? Hey, pacing down. Make sure to stay inside the guide. Lastly, other stem, Hey, if you wish. And that's it. 5. Details: In this next stage, you're going to add details. Use a thinner pen here. I'm going to use the same pen as before. Draw lines from the base of the flower and also from the top of the flower like so. And repeat the process pixel by pixel. And the way the shadow is going to be. Lotus flowers are quite round and plump anyway, so you don't need too much details. Just to be 0 shading and other increases. Take your time and the flakes that people will append to get the nice thin lines. So let's erase the pencil lines. 6. Practice: Now let's draw a few of them together. Snap, I enjoy circles and lines as a guide. I'm going to draw a T. T for this practice. Repeat the steps I've just shown you. Start with a pencil in the center and one by one, and the PESTLE is on the top half. Then draw the bottom. Join them at slightly different angles, will make them look nice together. I then under simple good, like I raindrop shape with a few lines inside. Then at each step. Now let's add the d doubts. I feel like are the well-known bond here. So let's make a small 17 dots around if you wish. And these don't really see a lotus flowers in a few simple steps. I hope you enjoyed this lesson and I'll see you in the next. Hi.
