How to Draw a Dandelion

You could call this an abstract version of how to draw a dandelion. Turn the ends into dots while drawing with metallic markers on black paper. It’s a pretty addictive.

This how to draw a dandelion tutorial shares my favorite way to make a radial design that results in pretty consistent lines and patterns, without and tedious measuring.

It’s all about estimating where middle lines should go to split areas in half. If you split large shapes in half, over and over again, you end up with a drawing that looks neat, but still hand drawn.

Note: This project is a sample from a recent art project ebook. If you like it, there are 19 more in “Spring Projects” in my PDF Shop.
