Description: Well guys, I’m nearing the end of my tutorial day because I only have one more lesson to upload after this one. I was going to make a lesson on something wicked cool, but I ran out of time to do so. Maybe I will get back to what I wanted to do another day and surprise you all with the concept that I have in mind. For now, what do you say we tackle a task on "<em>how to sketch a rose</em>", step by step. There are plenty of sketched rose lessons on Dragoart, but I felt like making another because I know there are a lot of members and visitors that just can’t get enough tutorials on roses. It took me about two hours to sketch out the rose to a style that I like. The shading and tutorial layout took another hour, so I guess you could say that in total it took me roughly three hours just to sketch out a rose. I love roses as well as other flowers that start blooming in the late spring, to early summer months. My family has two Knock Out rose bushes that they planted last year, so hopefully they come into full bloom once again this year. They smell so fantastic and are so beautiful when the bushes are full of dark pink colored roses. Unfortunately, we won’t be seeing any blooms until May sometime, but the wait is worth the while. Anyways, I had a lot of fun sketching flowers based on a single rose. If you love tackling roses should enjoy this lesson on how to sketch a rose too. I shall return with my last lesson so be sure to stick around a while longer. Adios people and enjoy!
Description: When you start sketching out the rose petals, you can begin to see how the S actually forms the base of the rose bud or center part of the rose bloom. Sketch in some nice rounded but pointed petals that has a nice center swirl.
Description: Now that the rose is all sketched out all you have to start doing now is sketch out the leaves which are in three. Sketch in the center of the leaves like so, then proceed to the next step.
Description: Once you have cleaned up the rose freeing it from mistakes, you can start sketching in the shading starting at the center of the rose, and then slowly work your way out on the first fold of the rose petal. Notice how there are light spots which are not shaded to darkly.
