- How to Draw a Tulip
In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a simple tulip drawing using only a few curved lines. The shape of the flower is quite easy to duplicate, but adding all these great effects (lights, shadows, lines, colors) can be a little bit more challenging.
Be careful when drawing tulips. You can easily end up with something that looks like a rose. To create a beautiful tulip, please note that this flower has only a few petals (while roses have many). The petals of a tulip are also less curly. Let's draw one like the one below and see how it goes! :)
Cool! First, you need to draw the petals and the peduncle. You can use multiple curved lines to create this flower. Tulips are not symmetrical, but you can still use this technique to save some time! :)
Next, you can add some lines on the three most important petals. Make sure that these lines are pointed and slightly thinner than the outlines.
Then, simply add some plain colors inside the petals and the peduncle. These colors are not definitive. They might change as we are adding more layers and more effects on this cartoon tulip.
Use the gradient fill tool to add a second color on each shape. As you can see below, most shapes are darker on the bottom and lighter on top. Petals on the back also needs to be darker.
In this step, all lines added inside the petals are colored differently since the previous color was too dark. You can also add transparency to make sure that the middle part of all lines is partially invisible.
Time to add some shadows! In this step, new shapes must be added to create darker areas. These shapes are currently marked with blue outlines. You can also use transparency to partially hide the top of these elements.
Using the same technique, you can now add lighter areas and use transparency to hide the bottom of these shapes. Don't hesitate to compare the previous step with this one to see the difference.
This is your final tulip drawing!
That's it! This cute tulip drawing is now done! You can also try more flowers if you want to. You can either draw a beautiful cherry blossom, a simple hibiscus or a sunny sunflower. Enjoy! :)
