Step 1: Draw a circle to identify the pistil and the direction of petals. Depending on the view, the circle will have a certain change in shape, circular or elliptical.
Step 2: Draw the first layer of petals, note to make it soft and show the curvature of the petals. By the way, draw a smaller circle/oval inside the pistil to impress the center.
Step 3: Draw the outer layer of petals a little more blooming, depending on how much you want the flower to bloom:> Remember to draw it as soft as possible UwU
Step 4: Redraw the main details (petals, pistil...) by lining pen, and erase the hidden part of the pistil.
Step 5: Do the same with the other flowers. Draw some leaves to make the picture less empty:>
Step 6: Full the color. Lotus has 2 main colors: white and lotus pink (the color of the goddess's lipstick that the sisters dodge like avoiding evil =))))). For the water surface, here I use 2 main colors, turquoise blue and lake green for the lake surface. Don't forget to shade the petals and leaves so the picture looks more lively. You can use blending techniques with watercolors to make the transition smoother.
That's it done UwU. It's simple and easy to do right, good luck to everyone<3
