Do you love astronomy? We hope you love drawing space objects because today we will be telling you how to draw the moon. In this tutorial, we tried to maintain a balance between cartoonishness and realism. We wanted to make our moon not look like an ordinary yellow circle, but at the same time we wanted to make the lesson as simple as possible.


Step 1

As you know, there are several phases of the moon. In our guide, we will show you how to draw a full moon, so the first thing we will do is draw a circle in the center of our sheet.
