How to Draw a Constellation

Step 1.

We will begin by drawing the shape of the eye for this constellation symbol. It's a series of lines that form a rounded shape and a point on one end.

Step 2.

Next, draw in the shape of the neck, chest and some of the jaw.

Step 3.

Continue to work on the nose and head, then draw in the spikes on the back of the head which is the spurred feathers.

Step 4.

Add the constellation points almost like a connect the dots scenario.

Step 5.

Now for the last drawing step, create the tree line just below the constellation. Make sure the tree line is small and distant looking.

Step 6.

And that's all she wrote. You can color in a nice background to bring this drawing to life.

What better to draw then a fictional constellation up in the night sky of a griffin head to go with the telescope lesson that was uploaded a bit earlier. Today, I will show you "how to draw a constellation", step by step. Constellations where used back in the early days as maps for travelers that used to use the open waters and land to get from one long distance to another. There are a total of 88 constellations that is recognized by The International Astronomical Union. Of course the constellation you see here in this lesson is not real. It's just a made up concept that I thought would be exciting to recreate. Thanks guys and enjoy.
