STEP 1. Since you are drawing two blooms, you will need to do double the work. Start by making two shapes with the one on the left being larger then the one on the right. Next, add a smaller circle in the middle, and then draw six spider like lines coming from the center.   STEP 2. You can no start sketching out the leaves that have wavy like edges, and be sure to take your time. The petals look a little like seaweed at this stage, so be patient as they will develop more in later steps.   STEP 3. Continue to sketch out the petals, and also keep drawing them in the same uniform pattern like you see here. Now they went from looking like seaweed, to looking like starfish.   STEP 4. Now it's time to draw the loose green leaves that embed the bloom like you see here. This is why the poinsettia is such an awesome festive Christmas plant, because they are red and green in color. Make sure that the tips are drawn to look a bit wispy.   STEP 5. Here you will finish drawing out the leaves for the poinsettia to the right, and then start sketching in all the definition and texture detailing to the petals. These are what you call rib lines. Keep at it until your flowers are completely detailed like you see here.   STEP 6. For your last drawing step, begin erasing all the shapes and guidelines you drew in step one. Once that is done you can then add the centers of the flowers like you see here, and add some more definition to the leaves and petals.   STEP 7. Guess what you did? You just learned how to draw poinsettias all by yourself just by using this simple drawing tutorial. I hope you had fun, and I know you will still continue to have a good time because you have to color them in as well.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
