Description: Here is a really cool lesson on "how to draw a comet", step by step. These balls that move through our star filled skies are basically just made of rock and ice. When they come into our atmosphere, they looks like balls of white fire with long tail trails. Did you know that comets flow through our solar system are guided by the sun? It's true, the sun plays a big role as to where the path to a comet will lead. One famous comet is 'Halley's Comet' and we can look forward to seeing her zip by every seventy five years. She is best known as being a short period comet which means it becomes visible to us earthlings almost every hundred years. I really enjoyed drawing a comet because it was somewhat different to what I'm used to drawing. Have fun people, and try to leave some feedback!
