How to Draw Cartoon Flowers: Step-By-Step
On your drawing sheet draw vague circles as many as you want; they need not be perfect. You don't need a compass or a stencil to get the circles right, just free hand circles, which look like in the picture alongside. If you are trying your hand at drawing for the first time make sure you use a HB pencil (which has a light and soft lead), it will give you the liberty to erase the pattern clean, if you are not happy with it. If you are confident enough, go in for a marker or sketch pens straight away, then lead lines from each circle as shown in the picture, which will act as their stems.
The next step is to add petals to these circles. Petals would be oval-shaped. It is not very difficult to get the shape right, and in fact you may draw ovals around the circle lightly (meaning it is OK, if the petals happen to overlap the circle you have already drawn). You can rub off the unwanted part of the oval that overlaps the circle. Check picture 2 to get correct judgment of the fully bloomed cartoon flowers. You can also use your creativity to add variations to these flower petals.
Just as these flowers look good in a bunch they look cute lone too. Now, you just have to thicken the slight arc, (which we said would act as the stem) you already created in the first step. Once you have thickened the arc, add two leaves on both sides of the stem. Position them anywhere on the stem; it is up to you! It is not necessary that all your leaves look similar, don't be afraid if the shapes vary a little.
Great job! Your cartoon flowers are almost done. It is time we add a finishing touch to the flowers we have created. Erase the unwanted lines, if any. Now, splash your cartoon flowers with bright colors. You can also blend darker and lighter shades to create an amazing effect. Use your finger or an eraser to smudge the colors. The angry flower in the album below will give you a clear picture of how two colors are blended together to create a little texture.
Now, comes the most interesting part; emoting. You can make the flower look like, it is smiling, crying, sad, angry, or even thinking. All you have to do is draw two small circles in the main circle as eyes, a small curve as nose and curved lines that emote your feelings. Given below are some expressions created, in case you want to use any of them, to make your message interesting. Take a look.
