Learn how to draw a great looking Black Hole with easy, step-by-step drawing instructions, and video tutorial.
By following the simple steps, you too can easily draw a perfect Black Hole.
What resides at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy? Some researchers believe it is nothing other than a black hole. You can learn to sketch one with the help of this easy, step-by-step black hole drawing guide.
A black hole gets its name because it is a body of gravity so intense that even light cannot escape from it. But this drawing isn't just a black dot on your page.

In the drawing, you will notice a swirling pattern indicating matter falling into the black hole. Relativistic jets sprout from the top and bottom, displaying particles of a star the black hole has "eaten." Additional distant stars can be seen in the background.
Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Black Hole
How to Draw a Great Looking Black Hole for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin by drawing a half circle. Notice that the line segmenting it is curved, not straight. This is the event horizon - the point where gravity becomes so strong that nothing can escape.
Then, draw a curved line alongside the black hole and extend above it. This indicates the relativistic jet - a blast of particles and radiation from the poles of the black hole.

2. Use a long curved line to draw the opposite side of the relativistic jet. Then, use curved lines that meet at sharp points to begin sketching the round, spiraling accretion disk around the black hole.

3. Continue sketching the accretion disk, using curved lines that meet at sharp points to draw the spiral shapes.

4. Draw more spiral arms of the accretion disk, again using curved lines that meet at sharp points.

5. Draw another spiraling arm of the accretion disk using curved lines that meet at a point.

6. Use curved lines to create long, double-pointed shapes at the edges of the accretion disk.

7. Draw more pointed shapes at the edges of the accretion disk. Then, from below the disk, use long curved lines to sketch the relativistic jet at the opposite pole.

8. Draw small four-pointed stars in the background.

9. Draw many more four-pointed stars in the background. Notice that these are smaller than the first.
Color Your Black Hole Drawing
Your black hole drawing is now complete. Color the phenomenon and the space around it. We've shaded the gas and dust of the accretion disk in orange and purple. The center of the black hole - the event horizon - is black as its name suggests, since even light cannot escape.
