We are starting with the petals
The lotus petals are growing in several layers. Draw the first one in the center. The next one will go from him it.
Giving the right shape
Add the second petal on the left side. The shape is the same.
Then the third one – slightly below and bigger in size.
Start drawing the right side
Duplicate the details on the right, making them the most similar to the leaves on the left.
Continue forming the flower
Gradually we are drawing the next layers of petals.
They all must be oval-shaped and sharp at the top.
Finish drawing the Lotus
We are finishing to draw the main part of the flower by adding the last petal in the center.
Now we only need to add the leaves which keep the flower on the water. They don’t let the lotus sink. The leaves’ shape are the same as the shape of the upper petals.
