Outline your drawing with black ink, and erase the pencil lines. Color the sky and the oval on the satellite dark blue. Use different shades of gray for the satellite and teal for the solar panels.

Make the planets teal and orange, then use orange for the small parts on the satellite. Use light gray for the stars, or leave them white. Try adding another structure to your drawing, such as a cartoon space rocket.
