Step 1

First, draw a few petals using mostly broken lines. The outline of each petal can be colored in brown. As you can see below the shapes are really simple and not filled with too much details.

Step 2

Next, you can sketch a few leaves below the flower. The outlines of each leaf can be colored in green. In the middle of the hibiscus, you can create a filament and an anther using circles and a single rectangle.

Step 3

Time to add some colors! The petals are colored in yellow. The leaves are green and the details inside are yellow and red. Simply look at the illustration below if you need more assistance for this step.

Step 4

Now that the most obvious shapes are done, you can add some lines inside the petals. These lines are filled with a dark red color. Inside the leaves, you can also add a few green lines.

Step 5

Every vector application comes with a tool to help you create gradient fills. Basically, this tool enables you to add two different colors on the same shape. Inside the petals, add a dark red color. Make sure that the yellow is near the outline while the red is located in the middle of the flower. You can also add a darker green color on the top part of each leaf.

Step 6

Inside the hibiscus, sketch some large red shapes as shown below. These shapes are surrounded by a pink outline that must be removed (it was only added for readability purposes).

Step 7

Finally, draw a large black circular shape in the middle of the hibiscus. This shape is represented by a pink outline. Use transparency to partially hide the outline of this shape. On top of each leaf, draw a solid shape filled with a dark green color. Use transparency to partially hide the bottom part of these shapes.
