How to Draw an Astronaut
- Draw the outline of the head.
You can depict the astronaut’s head as two circles of different sizes.
- Add the torso.
Draw it with straight lines below the head. This part looks like a rectangle without one side.
- Picture the astronaut’s legs.
Use straight and rounded lines to represent these elements.
- Add the astronaut’s hands.
Depict the two arms on the right and left sides of the torso. They should look the same.
- Add an astronaut backpack.
Depict it from behind the astronaut. You can use curved lines to do this.
- Draw a few elements.
Outline a panel on the astronaut’s chest and also draw the lines of his sleeves.
- Complete the drawing of the astronaut costume.
Add two lines on the helmet, details on the sleeves of the costume, and also outline the hose.
- Erase the auxiliary lines.
Remove any unnecessary lines from the drawn astronaut with an eraser.

Use different shades of blue to color the astronaut.
