Astronauts seem to have one of the coolest jobs in the world; they get the chance to explore space, to enjoy the wonders of the Solar System, and the chance to encounter incredible new things – including the chance of alien life! Ready to bring your astronaut to life? Then let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a pencil and a drawing compass, and add a small circle to the center of your page, close to the top.
Grab a ruler, and use the pencil to draw a horizontal line halfway across this. Then, add a vertical line to the bottom section, extending to the bottom of the page.
Add a curved line just above the horizontal one…
And then a curved semi-circle shape just above the bottom of the circle, with a straight line just below the top.
Now, add a small semi-circle to either side of the bottom of the circle for ears.
Draw two small circles below the middle line, and add smaller circles to the top of each.
Bring two parallel lines down from the bottom of the face, and connect these at the bottom with two curved lines.
Add a small rectangle to the bottom of this…
And then add a long, thin rectangle inside this, with two smaller circles.
Next, add two parallel, horizontal lines below this shape.
Connect these lines to the curved section above with curved lines at the side.
Now, bring lines down at the bottom on either side and connect these at the bottom with a horizontal line, just short of the central line.
Bring a line up on either side of the central line, and then add a curved foot to the bottom of each leg.
Add short lines to the belt in the center…
And then use a drawing compass to add a large half-circle shape to the right of the body.
Add a soft, curved “square” shape inside this, and add a large and small circle to the top – this will be the helmet.
Add a curve to the top of this helmet, and then add two curved “V” shapes to the left side for an arm.
Add a hand in an “OK” sign to the end of the arm…
And then add the edge of a square behind the back.
Add two stripes to the legs of the suit.
Add two small rings to the bottom corners of the suit, and bring curved lines across to the sides.
Bring two sets of bumpy lines down from the bottom of the head to create the hair…
And then use a black fineliner to go over the lines so far.
Grab an eraser, and remove any remaining pencil lines.
Use an orange pen to shade the face…
And use a dark brown pen to shade the hair.
Use a black pen to shade the eyes…
And a gray pen for the inside of the helmet, the tubes, the shoes, and the gloves.
Grab a red and green pen, and use this to shade the buttons in the center of the body.
And there we have it – your very own astronaut, ready to blast off into space and explore new horizons – and who knows what she may uncover?
