STEP 1. Begin by making two sets of circles with the outer shape being more like an egg, and the inner shape like a yolk. Next, draw the stem line too.   STEP 2. Now starting in the inner circle for a guide, you will begin drawing out some of the lily petals. Its best that you start from the bottom and work your way up the bloom. There is seven petals to draw in this step so take your time to get perfect results.   STEP 3. Now that you drew in some cone shaped petals for your lily, you can now draw in three larger shaped petals that will act like a resting bed for the smaller petals. Once this is done you are ready to move to step four.   STEP 4. The lily petals that are going to be drawn from both sides should have sort of an arch to them since these are the petals that start forming the roundish shape for the lily. There is three cone shaped petals on each side that you need to draw in, and try keeping them close to each other.   STEP 5. Continue to draw lily petals but this time have them drawn in a spiked position like so. The petals at the top of the flower are more erect and sturdier then the bottom, and outer flower petals.   STEP 6. Keep drawing in those petals like so, and when you are done, you should have a crown formed at the top of the lily like so.   STEP 7. Now you are ready to draw in the center of the lily which is filled with hair like stamens. Take your time with this step so the center comes out nicely drawn.   STEP 8. Now you are ready to finish off the flower by drawing in the thick stem. The lily stem is very strong, so be sure to draw it the way you see it here. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 9. Here is what your flower looks like when you are all done. Now you can have even more fun as you color in your newly drawn lily. I hope you had fun guys as I taught you how to draw a water lily.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8. Step 9.
