Hello! Creative enthusiasts. Welcome to ArtsyBeats – the go to place to unwind your creative spirit! In this tutorial, I will guide you through a beginner friendly tutorial to draw a Hibiscus Flower. Let’s dive into this easy drawing guide, packed with tips and techniques to help you bring the vibrant beauty of a hibiscus to life on paper.




Before we dive in, let's ensure we have our tools ready. You'll need a quality sketchpad, a pencil, some pens of different thickness (I have used Sakura micron pens in this tutorial) and an eraser (I have used a kneaded eraser for erasing the pencil guidelines mess free).

Step 1: Start with a Basic Outline


To kick off your hibiscus drawing, begin with a basic flower outline sketch. Sketch an oval-shaped, and then add outlines for adding the stem and leaves. This simple yet crucial step lays the foundation for your masterpiece.

Step 3: Drawing Hibiscus flower Petals


Now, let's focus on the petals. Hibiscus flowers have distinct, overlapping petals. Use soft, flowing strokes to define the edges and curves of each petal. Remember, nature is our guide, so embrace the organic, irregular shapes that make each hibiscus unique.

Step 5: Elevate with Shading and Texture


Bring your hibiscus to life by incorporating shading techniques. This brings depth and texture to our hibiscus. Use shading techniques with hatching strokes. This creates a three-dimensional effect, making your hibiscus pop off the page. Take a moment to fine-tune the details.
