You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Start by drawing a single flower. To do so, draw a “U” shaped line with a slight indent at the bottom of the “U”, Then draw more indented, pointed “U” shaped lines in different directions . Allow seams at the top of each “U”, forming a flower with five petals.
Draw a second flower, partially covered by the first flower. Again, use concave “U” shaped lines, allowing them to connect to form the outline of the flower.
Draw a third flower above the other flowers. Again, use “U” shaped lines with dented, connected bottoms to enclose the shape of the flower.
Draw a fourth flower, again using “U” shaped lines with concave bottoms.
Next, you will begin to weave the flowers with a cherry branch. To draw the branch, extend a pair of parallel, roughly “S” lines between the two flowers. Notice the knot extrusion at the bends in the branch. Below the bottom set of flowers, extend another set of twists. Connect them at the end using a short, curved line.
Extend a short branch between the top flowers using two “S” shaped curves. opposite. Connect the lines using a short, curved line.
Add subtle details to the branch. Place two sets of curves between the bottom flower and the branch. Extend three sets of curves from the tip of the stem to the top flower. Next to the flower, draw a “C” shaped line. Attach a cog shape inside it using some short curved lines that meet at “V” shaped points. This forms the base of an unopened flower bud.
Using some curved lines, enclose the shape of the flower bud. Notice how the inner lines indicate the overlapping petals. Encloses an unusual teardrop shape underneath the flower, showing a fallen petal.
Draw a small circle inside each flower. Extend six short, curved lines from each and end each with another small circle. This represents the anther and stamen of the flower.
