In our drawing, Neptune is a simple circle encased in wispy clouds. Neptune is known to have five faint rings, but these are not included since they are so difficult to see - even through a telescope.

Neptune was named after the Roman god of the sea because of its blue-green color. The Roman Neptune is the same as the Greek Poseidon; you can learn how to draw the sea god here.
