The initial step is to draw a 5-corner star that will serve as the main figure of your drawing. If you are still not familiar with how to draw it, check out the step-by-step guide below:

  1. The first thing to do is sketch a 5-corner star using your pencil. Start the drawing on the left side of the supposed 5-corner star by creating a line that goes up and down again until you form the star, as shown in the figure.
  2. If you need to become more familiar with making a 5-corner star, you can easily use the arrow as a guide to drawing the figure.
  3. Once you have made the 5-corner star, you can create an outline using only the border of the star you created. You can use the market for this step. Then, erase the remaining outlines on the inside part of the star.
  4. Finally, draw a pair of curve lines on the right side of the star that depicts the star’s movement.

Step 2: Adding more Details to the Shooting Star

  3. Finally, you can start coloring the shooting star using any color of your choice, watercolor, crayon, or colored pencil. The recommendation is to use two colors that are not too contrasting.
