How to Draw a Meteor

Artist: Dawn / May 19, 2009

Step 1.

First draw a circle for the shape of the meteor. Draw the guidelines in the middle and then add long curved lines for the trail of flames that is behind the outer space object.

Step 2.

You will start drawing the craters shapes which are separate circles that are the shape of Russet potatoes. Add more lining for the flames as seen here and then move to the next step.

Step 3.

Okay, now the ball of mass is starting to look like a hairy mole at this point and as you can see all you have to do is sketch out the outlined shape of the meteor. Add detailing and definition as you see here and then move on.

Step 4.

Sketch out more detailing on the meteor and then thicken the flames to make them whole looking. These are some cool looking flames as you can tell. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one and then move onto the next step.

Step 5.

This is what your meteor should look like when you are done. Color it in and you have just completed this lesson on "how to draw a meteor step by step".

Description: Let's switch things up a bit and do something different and exciting that you wouldn't normally see as a tutorial. Space is a wondrous place and there is so many secrets that hold mystery and surprise in outer space. I'm kind of hooked on things from outer space and I think that's why I am submitting this next tutorial on โ€œhow to draw a meteor step by stepโ€. Now according to NASA, a meteor is a bright streak of light that is seen very briefly before it disappears in the sky. Who knows, you may have seen a meteor while you were walking on the beach at night or when you were laying on your blanket looking at the stars. The reason why I say this is because meteors are sometimes thought to be shooting stars or falling stars. People will often associate a really bright meteor as being a fireball which is mainly because meteor's are round and when they pass through the Earth's atmosphere, they turn into a fiery ball. Meteors are made when pieces or chunks come off of a meteoroid. These pieces are usually particles of metallic or stony matter. Most meteors glow extremely bright for about a second or so and meteorites usually disintegrate before reaching earth. Anyway, I had a lot of fun with this drawing making it my own. I will show you how easy it is to learn how to draw a meteor step by step. I have to go because there is two more tutorials that need my attention for submission. Peace out and keep drawing.
