You can refer to Moon Phases simple step by step drawing guide below

Step 1. Sketch the moons

Start by drawing eight circles to outline the moons.

Step 2. Draw a wax crescent shape

Let’s draw the moon’s crescent phase by creating a curved line where it begins to appear. Add small ovals to form craters.

Step 3. Next Form First Quarter Period

Next, form the first quarter phase where half of the moon is visible. Draw a vertical line then add oval craters.

Step 4. Now Add Gibbous Waxing

Now draw a curved line to form the slowly forming lemur phase, where more than half of the moon is visible. Don’t forget to add small ovals to draw craters.

Step 5. Draw the full moon

The entire moon is visible during its full moon phase. Forms the oval outline of its craters.

Step 6. Create a weakened ape

During the waning phase, part of the moon begins to hide. Draw a curved line then fill in the left side of the moon with oval craters.

Step 7. Add the third quarter period

Draw a straight line and add oval craters on the left side of the moon.

Step 8. Then draw a waning crescent shape

During the waning crescent phase, only a small part of the moon is visible. Create a curved line then draw small craters on the left side of the moon.

Step 9. Complete the drawing of the moon phases

Let’s complete the drawing of the phases of the moon by adding some colors! First, use a black pencil to fill in the hidden part of the moon. Use a light gray pencil to shade the moon’s surface. Then, color in the craters with a dark gray pencil.
