Meteor refers to space material such as cosmic dust and solid blocks running in interstellar space, which are attracted by the earth's gravity when approaching the earth, and light trails produced by electronic transitions when passing through the earth's atmosphere at high speed.
Most of the meteoroids will burn up before falling to the ground, and a small number will fall to the ground and are called meteorites. When a large amount of comet debris enters the earth's atmosphere, it will form a beautiful meteor shower.
How to Draw a Meteor Step by Step
Step 1 Draw the outline of a big meteor
You can think of a meteor as an irregularly shaped stone. Just like the picture above, this does not need to be precise, please draw the outline of a meteor with confidence.
You can even go outside and find a random rock to use as your reference object.
Think this meteor isn't real enough? That's okay, we'll add more details to it later.
Step 2 Draw the outline of another small meteor
In a similar way, add another small one to the right of the already drawn meteor. This small meteor is lower.
You can also pick up a small rock as a reference object when preparing for the first step, if you go outside to pick up a rock.
Step 3 Add lines on the big meteor
Draw a sloping line in the middle of the big meteor.
Starting from the top edge of this meteor, draw lines connecting the top end of this sloping line.
Starting from the bottom end of the sloping line, draw lines to connect the edges of the meteor.
This gives the meteor a three-dimensional look.
Step 4 Add details on the big meteor
With the lines we added in the previous step, we divided this big meteor into four areas.
Add a small circle to that area on the left. Add a small circle and lines to that area on the right. Add a dot to the area below.
Step 5 Add lines on the small meteor
Let's look at the small meteor on the right. Take a point near the center and draw three lines from this point to connect the edges of the meteor.
In this way, the small meteor also becomes three-dimensional. You can also add some lines and small circles to this meteor.
Step 6 Draw the flame around the big meteor
On the outside of the big meteor, use irregular lines to draw the flame that are burning on this meteor.
The left part of this flame is nearly oval, and the right part is like its tail. Does it look like a tadpole?
Step 7 Draw the flame on the small meteor
In a similar way to the previous step, draw the flame around the small meteor.
The appearance of these two meteors is quite similar, like a mother meteor with its baby.
Step 8 Draw some sparks next to the meteor
Draw some ovals above the big meteor. Draw an oval to the right of the small meteor. Draw two ovals between these two meteors.
You don't need to draw these ovals perfectly. Draw them at will to get a more natural effect.
Step 9 Color meteors
We color the two meteors grey and then add a little white as reflections of them. On the outside of the meteors, the colors gradually change from bright yellow to yellow to orange from the inside to the outside.
