How to Draw a Rose in Illustrator

Drawing in Illustrator can be done by creating vector shapes and editing the paths and anchor points. Using the basic shape tools and the pen tool, we can create the petals of the rose. After that it’s simple to create the stem, leaves, and thorns using all the basic Illustrator tools.

Use colors that are a little less saturated and less bright to create a more natural look to your rose. In Illustrator you can create global swatches that allow you to make automatic color adjustments to your entire design.
