how to draw the Moon step-by-step

Begin by drawing a circle. This will outline the moon itself.

Draw a cloud passing in front of the moon. Begin the top of the cloud using short, connected curved lines.

Completely enclose the shape of the cloud, using short, connected curved lines to outline the bottom of the cloud.

Add another cloud beneath the moon. Again, use short, connected, curved lines to outline the cloud.

Enclose the cloud using short, curved, connected lines to outline the bottom portion.

Erase the guide line of the moon's circle from the overlapping cloud.

Add detail to the moon. Draw craters by enclosing irregular shapes of various sizes within the moon.

Add additional detail to the moon's surface. Draw dots, small circles, and irregular shapes to indicate craters.

Draw additional clouds above and below the moon using connected, curved lines of different sizes. Draw a star nearby.
