How to Draw the Galaxy

Step 1.


Start off by drawing a swirl for your guidelines which will help draw the galaxy.

Step 2.


Here is where you will add shading to create that misty, cloudy, milky look of the galaxy. Add some speckles and then you are done here.

Step 3.


Add some stars and small planets and you are all done.

My favourite drawing princess is a fellow stargazer? Well here's a present for you, maybe you've seen it but it's always worth to see it again: http://www.spacetelescope.org/images/heic1502a/zoomable/

That link is absolutely insane! Thank you so much for sharing this with me, now I have to share it with my other stargazer friends! It's always nice to talk to you, Serget!

well maybe some other good news then, the Keppler-telescope discovered another Exoplanet Keppler 425 B, it's in the Goldilocks zone (not too hot, not too cold for liquid water to exist) it's a bit like earths older cousin: http://www.nasa.gov/keplerbriefing0723. Can you imagine the nr of planets in that galaxy I sent you? :jawdrop:

Description: For the past couple months I have really been into star gazing and reading up on galaxies, stars, and other things that are from outer space. Today, I wanted to show folks how to draw the galaxy, step by step. I don't know which galaxy this is, but it's beautiful. Instead of doing a tut on the Milky Way (which is our galaxy), I wanted to create my own in an interesting and captivating manner. Anyways, the whole lesson from start to finish consists of three steps which means you should be able to finish it in to time at all. I do hope that some of you love this lesson as much as did making it.
