How to Draw a Blue Rose

Step 1.

Make a bean like shape like you see here, then add a guide down the center. This will be the base for your rose.

Step 2.

Start this step by drawing a simple opening like so. The end is pointed and so is the top.

Step 3.

Begin drawing the petal making sure that the contouring is as you see it here. The edges should be slit or torn.

Step 4.

Next, sketch out another piece of a rose petal. The petal should start folding over as it will rest on the petal under it. Take your time as you sketch out this rose for proper accuracy.

Step 5.

Again, sketch out more of the rose's petal and this time you can see how the rose starts to get bigger and wider.

Step 6.

Sketch out the base which is rounded. You will then add the opening to the rose petals on the lower tier. Sketch in the definition to bring a regular sketched rose to bloom.

Step 7.

You are almost done people. Continue to work on the rose petals like so. As you can see there is now three petals instead of one or two. Add detailing to the edges, then you're done with this step.

Step 8.

Lastly, sketch out the rest of the rose petals like so. Take your time because this is the bedding or foundation of your rose. Add the detailing and definition accordingly. Erase the mistakes and guides like so.

Step 9.

When you are all done, here is how the rose looks. Of course if you used pencil and you where sketching, the rose will look more realistic. Color in your bloom and that's it.

When you think of a flower, the bloom that often comes to mind is a rose. Now because the rose is such a versatile flower to recreate and incorporate into art and drawings, I have chosen to make a tutorial on "how to draw a blue rose", step by step. I didn't want to just make a regular looking rose like I often do, nor did I want this drawing to come out looking too cartoony or kiddie. I took my time and started a sketch on a detailed fully bloomed rose that has drops of water or dew, and has some minor torn edges. The rose reminds me of a sad girl in sorrow as she weeps over a lost love, or over a bad life. I don't know about you, but this is definitely one design I would love to have inked on my body if I was the tattooing type. Anyways, this should prove to be fun and exciting to tackle so enjoy. I will be back soon so don't go away. Adios folks.
