Joel Hickerson, Today we're going to learn how to draw a rose in barbwire. First thing, is you try to get a nice dynamic shape that you want, so start with the bulb of the rose, which is kind of an elliptical shape. Stem, which kind of falls maybe similar to an S. What we're doing here is we're using our pencil to get our basic construction elements. I start with a pencil to get a shape you want. None of these lines matter. Don't worry about erasing. We're going to come back with a marker and finish the line work. Okay? So we've got the stem shape, and then on the other side we'll do the barbwire, which may be a contrast with the stem of the rose. Barbwire kind of goes in and out of itself. Alright, and wherever it comes together sometimes you run into a barbwire itself. You don't need to do overkill even though there's probably more barbwire, more barbs on a barbwire. Just pick the shape, or pick the barbs where you want to put them so it doesn't get too cluttered. Okay? And you can cover up the barbwire every now and then with a leaf. And once you get your basic construction elements in, and like I said don't sweat the details when you're doing the construction lines, come back with your Sharpie, just pick the lines that you want to use on your finished art, like your rose. Finish out the shapes. Petals kind of fall away from the center on a rose. Makes it a little easier to draw that way, almost like peeling an onion. Don't be afraid to use dark shapes, or dark shadows, especially if you want to enhance the dynamic, dynamisms of your drawing. And then come down with your rose stem to where barbwire actually crosses it. Remember barbwire has two strands of wire. Alright, so finish the wire. Throw in a couple leaves on it. Maybe put one barb to where you can really accent both the wires and the barbs. That's pretty much it. Then you need to come back in and you can add your shading wherever you think you might want. The one thing that you want to kind of contrast is the softness of your rose here at the top versus the harder edge of the barbwire. And there you have it. And that's how you draw a rose with barbwire.
