I wanted to try something different with laying out the steps for each tutorial. Let's start by making a circle for the middle of the flower, and then draw a line on the upper part of the shape. This is going to enable you to draw out each pedal. Dra   


Now start sketching out each pedal which should be curled back in shape and form. When this is all done you can move to step three.


Continue to draw out the pedals and also detail the pedals to give it a look of a two dimensional texture.


Now you can draw in the long stamens. The tops of each one should look like hammer heads. The lily is one of the flowers that have protruding stamens.


Now it's time to draw out the stem, and loose leafs that run up and down the stem like so. Add some detailing inside of the leaf before leaving this step.


For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw out the spots on each pedal, but before you do that you have to erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.


Here is what the flower looks like when you are all done. Now you can go ahead and color it in. I hope you liked this lesson on how to draw a tiger lily.
