Hello, young astronomers! Today, we’re diving into the depths of space to learn how to draw a black hole. Whether you’ve marveled at these mysterious cosmic wonders in books or documentaries, we’re going to capture their awe-inspiring presence on paper.🎨
Follow my simple steps, grab your drawing supplies, and let’s create our own celestial black hole masterpiece together! 🌌
How to Draw a Black Hole
Draw a slightly elongated oval on your page. This will serve as the base for the black hole’s event horizon.
Inside the oval, draw a smaller circle off-center towards the top. This represents the singularity or the central point of the black hole.
Starting from the bottom of the oval, draw a curved line that swirls around the inner circle.
Add another line as shown in the picture. This line should mimic the rotation of matter being pulled into the black hole.
Draw another line parallel to the first swirl line, keeping the distance between them consistent to give the effect of a spinning disk of matter.
Continue adding swirl lines, following the shape of the previous ones to create a layered look.
Repeat the same process by adding swirl lines.
Repeat the same process by adding swirl lines. These represent the accretion disk, which is the matter that spirals in towards the black hole.
Once you have several swirl lines, refine them by adding depth and making some lines thicker or darker than others to create a sense of movement and three-dimensionality.
Begin shading your drawing, with the darkest part near the inner circle, gradually lightening towards the edges of the oval. This gradient creates the impression of intense gravitational pull towards the center. Fill the inner circle with solid black, and darken the surrounding areas to represent the point of no return. Optionally, add a bright white dot or shine to the singularity to depict intense energy.
