Would you like to learn how to draw a cartoon rose? This simple, step-by-step flower drawing tutorial will guide you in sketching the perfect cartoon rose outline.

Our cartoon rose is a flower with a face - a personification or anthropomorphization of the flower to make it a character.

Did you know? Real flowers may not have smiling faces, but they do communicate. In the book The Hidden Life of Trees, forestry professional Peter Wohlleben describes the social nature of trees and other plants.

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

How do they communicate? Flowers release chemicals that attract pollinators. Plants can also communicate danger to each other through airborne smells.

And, plants that grow in the same soil often have interconnected root systems, through which they can share food, water, and electrical impulses.

What will this cute and cheeky blossom have to say?

Cartoon Rose Drawing - Step 1

Cartoon Rose step-by-step drawing tutorial: step 01

1. Begin the cartoon rose outline by sketching the feminine eyes. Draw a circle within a circle, and shade the inner circle to indicate the pupil. Then, use curved lines to enclose a curved triangle at one corner.

Shade the triangle to indicate the eyelashes or cat eye style eyeliner. Then, begin sketching the second eye. Outline the curvy triangle and shade it.

3. Use two curved lines to craft the lower lip. Then, draw a long "U" shaped line around the facial features. This outlines the basic shape of the face. Then, trace a curved "Y" shaped line in the mouth of the "U." This outlines the overlapping petals of the flower.

6. Draw a spiral line in the center of the flower. Use additional curved lines to fill in petals as needed. Then, draw sepals - small leaves - at the base of the flower, erasing as necessary. Use curved lines that meet at points to form the leaves. Below them, use a curved line to enclose a half-circle shape.

7. Extend a pair of curved lines below the flower to form the stem. Then, use pairs of short curved lines that meet at points to complete the sepals. Extend a curved line from the side of the stem. This line will become the central vein of the leaf.
