1.

Start by taking a black pen and a ruler, and drawing a large square in the center of your page.


2.

Add another, smaller square inside this, but make the right corners slightly curved.


3.

Bring a line down from the bottom left corner of this smaller square, and then take a straight line across to the right, and up using the ruler. Add a curve to the top of this.


4.

Draw another straight line below the one at the bottom of the smaller square, and connect the two lines with a curve at either end.


5.

Add two straight, vertical lines in the space to the right, and connect these at the top and bottom with a curve – do you see the helmet starting to take shape?


6.

Now, add two curved, parallel lines to the bottom left of the helmet. Join the right end with a curve and the left end with a straight line.


7.

Add a cuff to the left end of this…


8.

And then add a hand, with a “C” shape topped by a bump for the thumbs up.


9.

Connect this arm to the bottom of the helmet with a curved line, and add a small right-angled mark inside the bottom left corner.


10.

Bring a curve down at the back…


11.

Add a long, thin shape to the bottom of the back line…


12.

And then add a slightly longer one just below this.


13.

Next bring a straight line down from the bottom of these shapes, connecting them as you go, and curve the line across to the left. Bring a line down from the front, and take this slightly towards the right at the end.


14.

Fill in the gap with another set of curved, parallel lines, and join these at the top with a diagonal line.


15.

Add a curved shape to the bottom for the foot of your astronaut…


16.

And then add a bumpy line to the bottom right of this, and a “hook” to the bottom left.


17.

Connect the hook and the bumpy line with a short, horizontal line.


18.

Now, add two angled, parallel lines to the back, pointing towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page.


19.

Add another foot to the end of this, and extend the lines at the bottom slightly…


20.

Add the same hook and bumpy line combination, connected with a straight line in the center.


21.

Take a ruler, and draw two horizontal lines at the back of the body – one at the top, and one at the bottom. Then, connect these with a vertical line, leaving the corners separated.


22.

Connect the corners with a curved line.


23.

Draw a small circle in the top right corner.


24.

Now, add a square “n” shape to the top of the square.


25.

Grab the ruler, and draw two horizontal, parallel lines across the body.


26.

Connect the square “n” shape to the back of the helmet with two curved, parallel lines.


27.

Add a shorter horizontal line behind the back square, and connect this to the back with curved corners. Then, add another shape behind this.


28.

Now, add another “n” shape in the bottom left-hand corner of the square.


29.

Add another of these shapes to the right…


30.

And then use the ruler to create two vertical, parallel lines emerging from the top of the second “n”, and take these up past the hand. Connect the tops and the bottoms with curved lines.


31.

Use the ruler to add a rectangle shape to the left of this, creating a flag.


32.

Add a circle inside the flag…


33.

And then fill this in with the black pen. Use the same shade to fill in the square of the face.


34.

Grab a blue pen, and shade the curved stripes across the neck and body, and shade the shoes the same color.


35.

Grab a red pen, and shade the circle on the back, the stripe at the waist, and the cuffs of the wrist.


36.

Grab an orange pen, and use this to shade the background.


And voila – your astronaut has successfully made it to Mars – the rest of the story is up to you!
