Astronauts are incredible explorers, making their way through the stars and across the frontiers of space to discover new horizons and uncover the mysteries of the great unknown. Wondering just what an astronaut looks like in person? Well, we have all you need to know to bring your own astronaut to life – let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Use a black pen to add a large circle to the top of the page.
Add another shape inside this to create a ring.
Next, add another circle just outside the central one.
Add a large “crescent moon” shape to the bottom right of this shape. Add two small circles to the top of this section.
Add two long, thin shapes to the bottom of this shape, with one on either side.
Now, add a curved line below each of these, with a “bump” on the end. Add a larger bump to the bottom.
Next, add a curved rectangle shape to the center of these, with a smaller rectangle inside this.
Add a long, thin “loop” to either side of this shape for the belt of your astronaut.
Connect the ends of the belt to the circular helmet above with a curved line on either side.
Bring two sets of curved lines across at the sides, connecting the helmet to the hands.
Bring a line up from the top of each arm, and take this across to meet the side of the helmet.
Now, add two curved rectangles in the center of the body…
Add a large circle to the top of this, followed by two smaller circles to the right. Then, add a small circle below, and attach this to a long, thin rectangle, and then a slightly larger rectangle.
Bring a line down on both sides at the bottom, take this out at the end, and then back up to meet in the middle, forming the legs.
Add two sets of stripes to each leg…
Get a thicker black pen and fill in the ring on the astronaut’s helmet. Also fill in the little rectangle on the center section.
And then use a blue pen to shade the thinner rectangle on the center section, the large circle above, and the crescent moon shape on the helmet.
Grab a lighter blue pencil, and shade the bottom of each set of stripes, the top of the body, and the rest of the helmet, leaving the small circles white.
Use a red pen for the gloves, the belt buckle, and the stripes on the arm, as well as the circle on the bottom of the central section, and the central circle above.
Use an orange pen for the third circle, and then the same shade for the belt buckle, and the sections behind the back.
Use the red pen to add color to the top stripe on the legs.
And voila – your very own astronaut, ready to tackle the wonders of outer space – but just where will his adventures lead him to?
