Today, I will show you how to draw an asteroid. This is a very easy creative task that any beginner can quickly handle.
If you are interested in the topic of space objects, then you will be happy to complete this lesson, because here you will learn how to draw an asteroid step by step. An asteroid is a celestial body in the solar system that orbits around the sun.
Asteroids repeat the behavior of planets, but cannot be called planets due to the fact that their mass and size are much smaller than those of planets. Asteroids are irregularly shaped and have no atmosphere. There are many asteroids in our solar system that revolve around the Sun in an independent elliptical orbit.
Every day, many asteroids, called meteorites, fall into the atmosphere of our planet. The meteorite moves very fast and burns up in the atmosphere during its movement before reaching the Earth‘s surface. It is such an asteroid that you see in the figure. Here the asteroid is irregularly shaped and flames form on one side of the asteroid.

How to Draw an Asteroid
- Draw the outline of the asteroid.
With the help of uneven wavy lines, depict a rounded figure.
- Detail the surface of the asteroid.
With thin lines, add several circles of different sizes.
- Depict a part of the flame.
Sketch out a jagged line around the asteroid.
- Add the rest of the flame.
Draw several pointed flames to end up with a closed path.
- Add the small flames.
With short, curved lines, draw small elements of the flame, as shown in the example.
- Color the asteroid.
For coloring, you will need different shades of red, beige, and orange.
