Flowers add cheerfulness wherever they grow – or wherever they are drawn. This is especially so when they also wear smiling faces.
Dancing, smiling flowers have been a common part of many cartoons for decades. A famous example of this is the 1932 “Silly Symphonies: Flowers and Trees” cartoon produced by Walt Disney. Today, such flowers often grace sunny window sills in the form of solar powered, plastic “dancing flowers.”
Would you like to be able to draw your own smiling, happy flower? Now you can, using this simple, easy to follow, step-by-step tutorial. All you need is a piece of paper and some drawing tools, such as a pencil, pen, colored pencils, crayons, or markers.
Each step in this guide is illustrated. Note that the new markings in each step are highlighted in blue. Sketch your lines lightly at first, as you will be required to erase some of the guide lines that you draw early on.
In just a few easy steps, you will have your own smiling cartoon flowers to brighten your day.

Now, you will add detail to the petals. Beginning with the flower on the left, add a wavy line to the interior of each petal. Each line should extend from the flower’s circle center, form three humps, then attach to the center once more.
Outline the leaves using two curved lines each. The lines should extend from the stem and come together to form a point with the leaf vein line.
Complete the mound of grass by connecting the far sides with a straight line. Add detail to the veins of the leaves by drawing one to two short, slightly curving lines extending from both sides of each leaf vein.
Within each eye circle, draw a smaller circle. You can determine the direction in which the flower appears to be looking by drawing this small circle on that side of the eye. Draw a tiny circle within each small circle. Shade the small circle.
