How to Draw a Meteor Step by step guide

Kids love learning how to draw things easily that they see in everyday life. When it comes to meteors, kids will be excited to learn how to draw them accurately. They will impress their friends with this new skill!

In this blog post, we will teach you how to draw a meteor for your child in just a few easy steps. So, get ready and let’s begin!

1. Trace the shape of the fiery outline.

This drawing will begin with the fiery surrounding of the meteor and, in this case, the outline of the flaming mass. To finish this outline, extend a few more curved and pointed lines to create the meteor’s tail.

For the tail to signify the trajectory the meteor is traveling, it will be thicker as it gets closer to the meteor itself and thinner as it gets further from it. When the outline is completed, you’ll be able to add your own details and ideas to the image. 

2. Complete the meteor outline.

Make an outline similar to the one you just created at the top with sharp lines in the downward direction. 

3. Draw the meteor’s surface.

We will begin our step-by-step guide on how to draw a meteor by examining its shape of it. Since the meteor’s shape is straightforward, this should not be a difficult step to complete.

As in our example, the shape will be rounded and chunky. Considering that the meteor appears to be a big chunk of rock debris, its shape should be pretty irregular and bumpy.

4. Draw shapes on the surface. 

A meteorite’s surface can be adorned by adding some irregularly shaped oval shapes all over it. Adding simple line details around these rounded shapes will add depth to them once you have drawn them.

5. Sketch an odd shape.

The circle of a meteor should also have an irregular shape on the suface of the meteor. 

6. Draw inner flames.

Make the flames start around the meteor. The speed at which meteors fly through the air will cause them to build up great heat and leave behind a fiery trail as they enter the atmosphere.

7. Add downward lines.

Adding downward pointed lines completes the flame as per the previous step.

8. Add finishing touches.

The remainder of the little fire should then be drawn around the meteor.

9. Double check your work.

Check and see if your picture look like this.

10. Color the Meteor in.

And in the last step, as always, we use color. Please remember to draw some simple shades on the surface. You can color it any color you want!

Congratulations!

How to Draw a Meteor Step by Step

What is a meteor?

A meteor is a small celestial body that enters the earth’s atmosphere. They are usually made of dust and debris from comets or asteroids.

As they enter the atmosphere, they heat up and create a streak of light, which we call a shooting star.

Some meteors are large enough to survive the journey through the atmosphere and hit the ground, where they are known as meteorites.

Meteors can range in size from a grain of sand to a boulder, and they can travel at speeds of up to 700,000 km/h. When they hit the atmosphere, they create a sonic boom that can be heard for miles around.

Most meteors burn up in the atmosphere, but you might be lucky enough to see one.
