How to Draw Cartoon Stars



Drawing cartoon stars: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • Most stars that we see in the sky are several million (if not billion) years old. 
  • Some stars will eventually, over a long period of time, become black holes.

Step 1

In this example, we will try to draw some five-pointed stars! These stars are made of five interwoven -V- shapes of 72-degree each. To make a perfect circle like the one on your left, you need a compass, a protractor and a ruler. But since this is not a geometry exam, we will try to make our star with a pencil and some imagination!

Step 2

You can see that in the middle of this star, we have a pentagon. All sides of this shape are equals. A six-pointed star is easier to draw since you only have to draw two triangles, flip one over and join them together! But I think that the five-pointed one is visually more interesting and also more challenging to draw!

Step 3

Start by drawing a circle. Next draw two lines, one vertical and one horizontal. Do this operation one more time, but with a 45 degree angles (the green lines). Now draw two small lines (the blue lines) just above the red horizontal line but below the green lines. 

Use the blue lines, the top red vertical line and the two green lines on the bottom to make your five-pointed star. This star is far from perfect in terms of geometry. But for a cartoon character, it does the job pretty well!

Step 4

It's now time for you to use your imagination to create some nice stars with a funny look (1) (3) or with a more realistic touch (5)(6). Don't hesitate to play with the point by making a thin character (4) or a strange looking one (2).
