how to draw
In this tutorial, we break down the process of creating a hand-drawn star into 12 easy-to-follow steps. We show you how to ensure that all of the sides are equal in length.
begin with a
We are going to begin our stars sketch by drawing a simple isosceles triangle. Find the center of your canvas, and place the upside-down triangle there.
draw a second
In this step, you are going to draw a second triangle at a slightly different angle to start laying the foundations of two more points of your star drawing.
You are now going to repeat the second step but as a mirror image. Draw a third triangle that lies on the opposite side of your five-point star.
You are simply going to add a centerline through each of the five points. Beginning at the midpoint of the star, take a straight line to the tip of each point.
FINISH THE PENTAGON
Within the internal pentagon shape, draw an additional small line from the center of the star to the top right corner of the pentagon.
To begin this step, repeat the previous step on the left side of the pentagon, adding in a secondary line.
Begin coloring your hand-drawn star with a gold color and a sharp brush. At this stage, you want to color only the right side of each star point.
You can now fill in the rest of your star drawing with a lighter gold shade. Use a fine brush to fill in the blank halves of the five points.
Find a soft shading brush and use a touch of black paint to lightly add some shading to each of the points of the star.
In this step, use a small blending brush and some white paint, and use this to trace the center lines of each star point.
To finish your five-point star drawing, you can now erase the black outlines to create a seamless stars sketch.
If you want to add a little more three-dimensionality to your star drawing, you can use a small blending brush with some black paint to add a shadow along the edges of your star points.
