First, you're going to draw a circle.
This will be the bud so make it whatever size you want the bud to be.
Next, you're going to cut that circle in half
- at an angle as seen below - with a sort of messy line.
And now you're going to do that again on half the bud.
Make sure to make these lines obviously imperfect.
Now add a line in the center, you should have a messy triangle shape in the middle.
And yet again, you guessed it, cut that triangle in half with a messy line.
See this is easy!
Now down on the side of the bud you're going to add another petal on the side.
This one can go anywhere, or you can copy my placement down below - remember, make it imperfect.
The next step is to simply make the petals a little more rounded and bulge-y.. bulgie? Bulg... make them bulge, you get the idea.
Make sure they look like they tuck into one another.
Add some details, petal creases, shading, etc.
All that's left is to add some leaves!
Go over it with pen if you'd like, color it in, etc.
