STEP 1. Obviously start by drawing a big round circle. This shape should be as big as you want your moon to be.   STEP 2. You will now sketch out, or shade in the dark patches that is scattered more to the left side of the moons surface. Remember when I said that the dark areas of the moon are frozen over lava from erupted volcanoes? Well, that is what you will be sketching out here.   STEP 3. Continue to shade out the dark patches that seem to outline the dark areas you just drew in step two. AS you can see the color get lighter and lighter as you move away from the center of the moons surface. The lighter areas are being lite by the sun.   STEP 4. Color in the remaining parts with a lighter color, and then you are all set. There is no lines or shapes to erase because you shaded in all the areas instead of drawing them in. This technique was done to show the contrast of texture on the moon.   STEP 5. Your finished drawing of the moon is complete. That is all I have for you, and hopefully you have learned something new. Drawing moon is fun, and educational wasn't it.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
