How To Draw A Space Creature With Your Own Ideas.

This printable worksheet offers a technique to use to gain inspiration to draw a creature that is different from anybody else's.

Parents and teachers and home school families will find many ways to use this in class and at home.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT. Drawing takes practice and learning to find new ways to be creative takes time and practice too. If your first attempt does not turn out the way you wanted to do not give up, use it as a first draft and try again. Try to trace over it and change things, sometimes you have to draw a project several times before you are happy with it.

To donate use the Paypal button on the left.

To print the worksheet below just highlight it and send it to your printer or save to your device to print later. Some printers work better if you first drag the image to your desktop and print from there. If you have problems see the How to Print tab above or try one of the updated links below.

To get ideas start by drawing shapes randomly on the page, like doodling; in the worksheet, I started with random circles; I admit I had a few ideas about one being the head and another being the body.

Just like doing connect the dots start to organize the circles into legs and arms or other parts.

Add variety with contrasting shapes like triangles. I used triangles for a collar or armor like thing.

For arms or legs start with a stick figure approach to get the position right then go around the stick figure arm to give it thickness and form.

Go over the lines that you like and erase the rest. Add things like eye-stalk, ears, wings or sucker cups.
