Step 1

In the first step of this meteor tutorial, we’ll start with the shape of the meteor itself. This is a pretty simple step, as the shape of a meteor is actually pretty basic.

It will have a rather rounded shape like the one we used in our example.

This is a meteorite that looks like a large chunk of rubble, so we’ll aim for a rather bumpy and irregular shape.

Once you’ve drawn the shape of this meteor, we can start adding more elements and details in the next few steps!

Step 2 – Now draw some details for the meteor

Now that you’ve completed the overall shape of this meteor drawing, we’ll be able to start adding some texture details to the surface.

Meteorites will often have holes and dents in them, and we’ll add some of these details now.

You can do this by adding some irregular rounded ovals all over the surface of the meteor.

Once you’ve drawn these shapes, you can also add some simple line details around these circles to give them more depth.

That’s all that needs to be done for this step and now we can continue to step 3 of this tutorial.

Step 3 – Draw the starting point of the flame around the meteor

As meteors pass through the air to enter the atmosphere, their enormous speed will cause them to accumulate a large amount of heat and leave a trail of fire after flying.

This fiery effect is what we’re going to start adding in this first step of the meteor tutorial.

To do this, you can draw some curves with spikes incorporated into them around the front face of the meteor.

This will show how the meteor is breaking through the atmosphere in a fiery flare! Once this is started, we can add to it in the next few steps of the tutorial.

Step 4 – Next, draw the remains of the flames around the meteor

You started the fiery surroundings of this meteor drawing in the previous step, and in this step we will finish the outline of this fire block.

To complete this outline, lengthen some more curves and spikes to create the ‘tail’ of the meteor.

This tail will be thicker when it is near the meteorite itself, and it will be thinner as it gets further away to show the trajectory it is moving.

With this outline drawn, you’ll be ready to add some final details and your own ideas to the image in step five of the tutorial.

Step 5 – Add Final Details to Your Meteor Drawing

This part of our tutorial on how to draw a shooting star will be the finishing touch to some final touches to make the picture even better.

To round out the details we’ve shown, you can add some sharper curves inside the meteor’s fiery tail. This will help add a bit of depth to this aspect of the image.

Once you’ve added these details, you’re ready for the final step of the tutorial! Before continuing, you can also add some details of your own.

One idea would be to paint a background that has aspects like stars, planets or even other meteors.

If you’re feeling more creative, you can even add something fun like a quirky alien spaceship! How would you finish this image before we color it in the final step?

Step 6 – Finish your meteor drawing in color

Now you are ready to complete your meteor drawing with some colors that really bring it to life! In our example image, we showed you how we interpreted the colors of this picture.

We used several shades of light brown to the surface of the meteorite itself to complete its rocky look. We then used various reds and oranges for the meteor’s fiery surroundings.

Do you think you will use similar color choices to the ones we used or will you use a unique color approach?

You can also have a lot of fun with your favorite art mediums, so let your creativity flow as you complete your out-of-this-world artwork!
