How to Draw Venus – Step by Step
Step 1: Sketch the outline and add topography to the Venus
- Begin by sketching a large circle in the center of your paper. This will serve as the foundation for Venus.
- Study the images and videos of Venus on the internet or television, you might realize that this planet is composed of diverse topography. Thus, start drawing this feature using strong curves.
- Within the curves, add smaller details to suggest the topography. Vary the length and spacing of the curves to create a sense of intensity and texture.
- Add more curves until you think it’s enough. You can draw small circular or elliptical shapes to represent the craters in real life.
Step 2: Shading and blending
- Once you’ve sketched the major features, it’s time to give your drawing a natural-look by adding colors.
- Since Venus is often depicted with shades of orange, choose at least 4 colors from this hue and start painting the areas between the curves. Refer to the image above for a simple way to collaborate these shades.
- Next, experiment with white and dark spots along the curves at the same time to add volume and depth. Plus, use short lines to highlight some parts as you wish.
- Well, you’ve almost nailed it. Just a little effect needed. Now, determine the darker side of your venus and lightly shade a small area from top to bottom to enhance the three-dimensional aspect of your drawing. Surprise! It really looks pop and vibran
In a world where imagination knows no bounds, drawing Venus will unleash a realm of your artistic possibilities. But don’t stop at just a single planet while you can make it shine in the universe.
Let the background and additional elements breathe life into your artwork. Consider adding a backdrop of stars and galaxies or a terrestrial landscape that provides context and elevates your artwork to new dimensions.
