Already as a child I knew how to draw Earth. When I was a faraway child, I always dreamed of traveling a lot. In my room there was a small globe, which could take me in my imagination to anywhere in the world. I read a lot about new discoveries and places, drew at length the vast planet Earth. I wondered how it could fit on a single sheet of paper. And now I will share with you the knowledge of how to draw Earth.
The basics of how to draw Earth
For a drawing in its simplest form, you will need:
- Globe or map of the Earth
- Pencils (felt-tip pens, paints, gouache, etc.)
- Drawing album
It doesn’t take many things to end up with a blue planet on a leaf:
- Blue Water
- Green continents
The circular can replace any handy objects with which it will be possible to draw the shape of a circle. Although our planet is not perfectly round, it is customary to draw it in the shape of a ball. Next, we need to divide our sphere with a slightly rounded horizontal line down the middle. It will divide the world into southern and northern hemispheres.
Complement the same curved lines at the top and bottom, a total of 7-8 pieces. Then depict the meridian lines vertically. The uppermost point in the middle, connecting all the vertical lines is the North Pole, and at the bottom – the South Pole. There will be 6 vertical semicircular lines and a flat line in the middle. You will get a grid of degrees, which you can then (if you wish) erase.
If you can’t do it at all, I suggest circling a round cookie cutter. The colors should be as bright as possible. The kids want to get a beautiful planet as soon as possible, so coloring with paint is much faster than with felt-tip pens or pencils. But no one forbids that either.
Drawing the Earth’s Continents
We outline the continents very roughly:
- Top and bottom glaciers – making arcs
- Eurasia – the bird looks to the right, it has a large belly, and from the tail fly feathers
- Both America is a drip flowing from top to bottom
- Between them Africa is a heart
Looking carefully at a map or globe, show Antarctica at the bottom and the Arctic at the top. You don’t have to go into too much detail. Then move Asia and Europe to our sheet. Only then will it be convenient to draw North and South America. To make the map seem more clear, you need to outline the continents more boldly. Then you can start coloring a miniature copy of the Earth. Most often the continents are colored in green, orange, and brown, while the area with water is colored in blue, blue, or turquoise. With each step the drawing will become more and more similar to the original and give a lot of joy.
So the circle is drawn, which means that half of the job is done. Now you have to choose which hemisphere will be represented in the drawing. Let’s say it will be the Western Hemisphere, which means you need to start drawing the details. By drawing these little squiggles, you should try to reproduce the outlines of North America as accurately as possible. By the way, it will be a little easier if you start at the top and gradually move lower.
You can say that everything is ready, the only thing left is to color the dry land with green and the water with blue. You can lightly rub the drawing with a piece of folded paper to make it more saturated. Now we have to add something, since the Earth is not hanging in a space as white as milk. It is necessary to “put” it in space, and for this to finish drawing some stars and, of course, the moon. That’s it, now you know how to draw Earth and you can practice on our ideas for drawing the Earth.
