I see that many of you are loving the dragon face tutorial that I submitted a little while ago. It was pretty cool huh? Well for my fourth lesson I am going to show you “how to draw a galaxy step by step”. Now drawing a galaxy can be a bit tricky because it's not going to come out looking colorful or bright unless you go over your pencil drawing lines with colored pencils or color it using water colors. A galaxy is probably the most fascinating concept that exists bar none. Now have you ever wondered what exactly a galaxy is? Well I sometimes used to ask that question and finally found the answer. When I read what a galaxy really is I realized that something this incredible deserves to be written about as well as drawn about. Galaxies are nothing more than large systems of stars and matter. Just one galaxy has several trillion stars and large amounts of masses that are between several trillion times that of our sun. Our world or planet's galaxy is a giant spiral called the "Milky Way" galaxy which is one hundred thousand light years in diameter and contains a mass of about a trillion solar systems. There are also thousands of clusters and nebulae. To break it down in more precise understanding, a galaxy is a humongous gravitationally bound system that contains stars, gas, dust, and a bunch of dark matter. The galaxy is such a wondrous place and to think that us humans are the only life form living, is absolutely ignorant to say or even think. This tutorial will show you how to draw a galaxy step by step. I hope you guys will like this lesson, there is really nothing to it except for lightly sketching the swirls and adding the stars. I shall return with two more lessons.
