Next it was time to make the lotus flower. I watched a Youtube tutorial by Easton Creations to get a basic idea how to use Lofting and other techniques to shape a petal. Then it was just a matter of duplicating, rotating, scaling and making minute adjustments to each petal to round out the shape of the flower. This took quite a while, because I wanted an organic shape that didn’t look entirely symmetrical.
One that was done I started working on the center – the lotus seed pod and stamens.
