Stop what you’re doing.

Take out a pencil and paper.

Your inner child is calling out, wanting SO desperately to be set free. Artist or not, setting aside time to draw is the PERFECT way to let your creativity and inner child runwildly.

Something as simple as a lotus is enough to spark that innovative fire inside of you. So, to help you burst out of your shell, here’s a simple lotus drawing that you can follow along with, step by step!
Start with two simple ovals, one on top of the other, forming a T shape. Simple, right?!

The petal transformation is going to begin with the vertical oval! Create a point at the top of it with two curved lines, connecting to the oval’s outside.

Inside the bottom oval, draw two curved lines from the top to the sides of the oval, creating an effect of depth in the petal.

Aiming to be as symmetrical as possible, begin adding petals on each side of the center petal. Keep the lines slightly curved.

Add some smaller background petals, maintaining the symmetry.
