How to Draw A Cartoon Moon

Drawing a cartoon moon: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • The moon doesn't have any atmosphere or any magnetic field.
  • The gravity of the moon is one-sixth the gravity of Earth.
  • Only 12 astronauts walked on the moon.

Step 1

How to draw a cartoon moon step 1

To draw a nice moon, you need to know how to draw a circle. But the earth's best friend is more than that. The earth's satellite is gray, round and made of many craters (3). 

It is believe that the moon is about the same age as earth. The moon's rotation is set up in a way that we, on earth, are only able to see the same side of the moon at any giving moment of the day.

Step 2

Nothing special about the moon's shape. It is made of a circle and, like I said above, many craters have been formed on the moon over time. What makes the moon special is its position more than its shape. 

Since the earth can hide the moon from the sun, each month we can observe the full moon, the quarter moon or even a half moon.

Step 3

Let's try to draw a quarter moon with eyes! First, draw a circle. Then, draw another circle that overlap the first circle. I like to make this second circle a little more narrow in order to make the final shape a little thicker.

Next, keep the parts of your circles that will make the body of your moon. Then, add the eyes and the nose. Finish your work by adding the pupils and the mouth.

Step 4

You can always start practicing by drawing a very simple moon (5) or one with less details (6). You can also draw a full moon with a small shadows to make it more original (1). A moon is a not so difficult to draw if you practice just a little bit every day. Good luck!
