Hi people! I'm trying to draw a flower, something totally new for me :3

Here is my 1st attempt! (The Quotes are because I didn't like how it resulted, it's a "Flower", not a Flower XD)

I was practicing, it was not my intention that this is the final drawing, so I didn't make the background, and I did not take much care about petals outlines.


I don't know, It doesn't look good, I don't like it!

Any tip, something .-.? I have a lot of trouble with polluting the draw, how can I prevent that?

Hope you don't like it >.< !

Negative drawing can be tough ... not bad for a first try

Negative drawing? I'm not following. The picture is good for a fast first try.

Flowers are tough. It's something I struggle with. Nice first try.

When the draw gets dirty with graphite.

Thank you all guys, maybe I'll do the 2nd try today. The flower idea is meant to be a gift for a friend, wanna draw it nice u.u

So, here is my 2nd try... I liked more the 1st XD

I used the pencil in a different way this time, just to see what happens.

What do you say? o.O?

Oh yes, this is much more 3 dimensional. I like the shading you put on it. Good job Fanki.

thank you girls...

Now, this is suposed to be the final version of it...
The idea is to give it as a birthday present, sending it by mail to a friend who is living outside the country... as a surprise.

I don't know, I don't really like it, my first reaction was a "Dagh" followed by a Sigh :P

What would you say if you receive (if I manage to send it to the right location without she notices xD) it as a gift? I'm not sure if I should send it :confused:

Guess I'll have some sleep now, it has been a frustrating weekend, I should judge it tomorrow, perhaps I like it more .-.

I think it's lovely. Flowers are tough to sketch...they look so simple until u start drawing them!!

I vote send it :-)

Absolutely send it! It looks great and I'm sure she will love it. You improved on the shading and the background leaves makes the flower pop out.

Oh yes, yes, send it, it's so sweet and pretty, I would be glad to receive such a gift :D The flower pops right out of the page, it look really good :)

It looks very good.. and I would send it! Only thing is if you see this before you send it.. I would get a few more darks and shadows in the leaves.. they are very (too much) uniform) leaving them a bit flat looking

It's not that great but I still like it. And in real life the flower's inner side looks a bit darker, or that's what I remember... I sent it to a friend and now I think it's lost in wind cuz she never recieved it .-.

Hope you like it too (I know... the background it's not so cool xD)
