Okay, so I know you guys have seen these bamboo plants in the stores like Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowes, or wherever. Well I finally bought one after procrastinating that I would the other day and let me tell you, I love it. This lesson is going to show you "how to draw a bamboo plant", step by step. My bamboo doesn't look like a heart like you see here, instead it has a cascading intertwined look that is almost perfect in design. You can buy bamboo plants in a variety of styles. Shoots that go straight up, ones that are twisted within one another, or you can go and get the plants that are like mine, a a maze like pattern. One thing is certain, no matter what type of bamboo you like, they are all great. I chose to make a heart shaped bamboo plant because of Valentine's Day, but you can go with whatever you like. Have fun and stay tuned in for more tuts on the way.
