Once you have the image or actual sample to use as your reference, you’ll also want to have some inspiration to get you started. How about starting with a nice tasty Frappuccino topped with just the right amount of whipped cream? You might be asking why? Well, this is a matter of perspective. The image that you see from that caffeine-filled drink is actually the base outline that you’ll need to start drawing your rose. It’s one of those memes that you’ve heard before once you see it…’ that will stick with you. And for good reason since this simple drawing base shape is what makes learning how to draw rose shapes -a cinch from this point. The curved plump little crown of whipped cream will form your unfolded flower petals. Inside that little dome, you'll want to curve a line that follows the opposite side with almost an equal distance within the dome. Now, complete this line by creating another curved line that forms a 'Y-shape' inside that dome. When you finish this, add another line that gives another layer between the Y-shaped gap. Now you're ready to start adding rose petals to the outside of your little cup shape. What looks as if you have a robe slightly covering a t-shirt, you want to copy the first line drawn inside the dome that seemingly begins at the backside of your cup. This line swoops over and swings back to rest on the center bottom part of your cup. Repeat this like a mirror image on the opposite side of the cup, only this time- that line is tucked inside the first petal line that was drawn. Erase the overlap with your eraser if needed. From this point it's a matter of giving your rose some (petal) buddies, starting with a cushy backrest for your cup. Why not add a couple more pillows behind that on each side of the backrest. Try to fold each line behind the previous one, so follow the last two petals that the cup is now sitting on. It's easy to draw a stem and leaf at this point that comes out from under the sitting pillows that create the bottom petals. The final touches are to add folding lines around the front and back rim of your cup, similar to your first curved dome line. Start basic shading inside deep areas where shadows would appear. You can start to clean up lines and erase overlapped sections where it appears that each petal is hiding behind each other. You don't need to go over these lines with heavier pencil marks just yet since you might consider the possibility of adding colors or special sparkle effects.

To make your petals appear three-dimensional, always follow the highlight and shadow rule where light is hitting your rose. Little drops of water might have dots of sparkles or along the leading edges of each of the petals. You can use special pens that have gold or silver ink to add metallic shine, so be sure to select a fine tip version. You may also want to use a glitter glue pen that has a finer application tip or use a toothpick for very fine detail. Dip your toothpick into a small blob of glitter and decorate your rose as you like. You can use a small amount of embossing powder and apply this with a makeup brush or Q-tip. This can then be heated with a blow drier to seal the powder onto the paper. If you use regular sparkle or shimmer onto your roses drawings, seal them with matt spray. You might also want to check out glitter color pencils that will be perfect for adding more sparkling dazzle to your colored roses. This is how to draw a rose with customized colors that are exciting and different each time you decorate anything on paper.
