Red Rose -- Pencil


This is my first attempt at doing a shaded pencil drawing of a rose. I have wanted to draw one for a while, and have been looking for weeks for a rose to draw.  I finally found the inspiration for this one in a flower magazine last week. It was  fun to do, and I learned a lot drawing it.

  2. This is a fantastic rose. You've drawn every petal perfectly and your shading has given it a 3D effect.

  6. If my mom sees this, she'd say "See Alex? Why won't you draw more of these instead?? Those zombies and motorcycles... bleh... ROSES are more beautiful!" And I have to agree with her too if she said that, this is really beautiful I am mesmerized by it. ^^ Thanks for your comments on my drawings and I am glad you like those ice sculptures too.

  9. This is really pretty. You did a wonderful job. I could see this printed out on watercolor paper notecards with a pale wash of color over it to make a gift set. Very nice.
