How to Draw a Satellite

Artist: Dawn / December 5, 2009

Step 1.

Even though this is very simple, I still needed to place the lesson under the intermediate category for those of you that are novice artist. You will first draw a rounded window like shape and then add the guidelines for the metal design. Next you wi   

Step 2.

You will now draw window like shapes of the body of the satellite, and then draw the satellite dish at the tip of the body as you see here. Draw an inline inside of the panels to add detail and depth.

Step 3.

For your last drawing step you will draw the antenna attached to the upper right side of the satellites body and then draw the attaching arms that conjoin the solar panels to the body. Detail and define your satellite, and then start erasing all the    

Step 4.

When you are done your drawing should look like the one you see here. Pick some colors and shade in your art. I hope you guys enjoyed this easy tutorial on "how to draw a satellite step by step".

Description: Another lesson that will be added to the outer space category coming up in just a few, is a tutorial on “how to draw a satellite step by step”. I'm sure that there are science and outer space buffs out there that really get a kick on learning about our universe and all the machinery that is a part of it. Satellites are devices that rotate or orbit around the earth, as well as other bodies in space. These types of satellites are called “artificial satellites”. The man purpose for a satellite to be placed outside of our atmosphere. This so that people, including scientists, can study our universe in vigorous detail. Some research teams use satellites to pick up certain frequencies to try and detect Extraterrestrial communications as seen in the movie staring Jodie Foster “Contact”. Satellites are also used to forecast the weather, and make calls on our cell phones to people we know that live hundreds or thousand miles away. GPS systems are also dependent on satellites in order to lead us to our destinations properly, and they also aid captains as they navigate ships and aircrafts across the waters and above the skies. Another big satellite user is the military and air-force. Satellites are used for coordinates when they need to send a fighter jet to a location, or launch a missile. Submarines also rely on satellites to guide them through the deep sea. These artificial manufactured objects have already been used to study objects like the moon, the sun, asteroids, and even planets Jupiter, Mars, and Venus. A lot of information is sent to our astrologers, scientist, weather men, and cell phone companies. Without artificial satellites, I guess we wouldn't know as much. Anyways, this lesson will teach you "how to draw a satellite step by step”. I didn't draw anything fancy, just something real simple and easy like the spaceship I submitted earlier today. Enjoy this lesson, and be sure to meet me back again with more drawing fun. Peace peeps!
