2) From the middle of the rectangle, draw one vertical and one horizontal line equally dividing the shape.
3) Draw another horizontal line equally dividing the upper half of the rectangle. Similarly, draw a horizontal line equally dividing the bottom half of the rectangle.

Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the picture, and the main proportions of the spaceship. Use a semicircle to show the shape of the cabin.

Step 2

Add the guidelines for the spaceship. Mark the place where the alien’s head will be.

Step 3

Draw the general shape of the spaceship, and the antenna on top of the cabin and the alien’s head.

Step 4

Outline the alien’s torso, neck, eyes, and the top of its antenna.

Step 5

Add the alien’s arms. Refine the shape of its antenna.

Step 6

Work on the whole figure, adding more detail.

Step 7

Contour the spaceship. To do this, try to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Draw the details carefully, and add stars outside the spaceship. Erase all the guidelines.
