Mars is a planet in our solar system, and it’s the closest of the eight known planets to Earth. It’s also called the red planet because of its rust-colored soil, called regolith.
Scientists discovered that a plume of hot material is enveloping the Martian interior. It’s called a mantle plume, and it could have implications for extant life on Mars.
1. Draw a sphere
A planet is a massive object that revolves around a single star. It’s made from a sphere and has many features such as craters, surface textures and rings.
To make a sphere on mars planet drawing easy, start by selecting a styrofoam ball and painting it in its predominant color. For example, if you want to create Jupiter, paint it orange with white striations.
Next, duplicate the sphere and resize it slightly. This will give you a new surface that will be darker at the bottom and brighter at the top. You can also add some transparency to this new sphere. This will make the sphere appear more massive inside it.
2. Draw a ring
The rings on Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune are all well known but newcomer Mars will have a ring of its own.
The ring will be the largest of its kind in the solar system and it’s also the most complicated. It will be a combination of ice, dust, and other ephemeral elements that could conceivably form over many million years. The resulting creation will be a visual wonder to see for anyone lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the red planet.
3. Draw a surface
Mars is one of the four rocky planets in our solar system. It has a similar geological formation as Earth and promises conditions that could sustain life in the future.
Water ice caps are present at the poles, and liquid water is likely to exist on surface rocks in various places on the planet. However, liquid water on Mars is not presently stable; it is prone to freezing and refreezing.
The surface of Mars looks like a Noachian landmass, with large craters buried in some areas. No process could erase only large craters and restore the surface to smoothness, so it seems that something wiped out craters everywhere at once.
4. Add some arcs
Mars is a relatively easy planet to draw. A printed blank is all you need, or just a small circle drawn on the page.
For a more detailed drawing use white card or a high quality piece of medium weight drawing paper. This will help you to see the finer details of your doodle, and make sure that the telescopic image is not ruined by your poor handiwork.
5. Add some long pointed shapes
A shape is any object that has a defined form. While we usually think of circles, squares and triangles, there are many more interesting shapes to ponder. Some even have names.
A good place to start is by examining a few of the more unusual shapes in nature, like ellipses, pyramids and elongated leafy critters. You can then use your new found knowledge to build your own. The best part? All that hard work will pay off in spades. If you are a novice artist, don’t be afraid to try your hand at more complicated designs. You may be pleasantly surprised by the results!
6. Add some black shapes
The Red Planet has always fascinated people, and it’s no wonder that so many kids find this celestial object so appealing. In this lesson, we’re going to use a few shapes to recreate the planet’s surface, making it more believable by adding some craters and texture.
For the first step, we’re going to draw the planet’s sphere, and then we’re going to add some details towards the upper and lower sections of it. In this case, we’re going to be using black colors.
