How To Draw a Realistic Rose

Drawing anything realistic is much more challenging than making a cartoon picture as the former requires you to depict the exact shape and size of things to bring life to your drawing. At the same time, it is much more fun to draw realistic pictures and show off your great artistic talents. Here is an easy step-by-step instruction so you can learn to draw a neat realistic rose.

Step 1

  • The same has been done with all the petals in picture 8. Just erase the round edge of each petal and make it slightly pointy; your flower will look pretty real once you are done.
  • Now it is time to work on the toothed edges (serrated margins) and the veins of the leaves so they become realistic as well. Just see the above picture and work the margins of the leaves as shown, followed by the veins.
