Whether it's a big, bright green one or a small, gray, spiky one, learning how to draw an alien can be a fun and creative process. The key to a good alien drawing is all in the details. In this article we will show you how to draw an alien by following a series of simple steps.

To start, sketch an egg shape for the alien's head. Make sure to draw the outline very lightly so you can erase it later if you make a mistake. Next, draw two large eyes. You can choose to make them more realistic by giving them pupils or you can make them more cartoonish by leaving them blank. Also, add some antennae if you want to. For the mouth, just draw a short, curved line.

Now that the face is complete, we can draw the arms. On the left hand, we can draw a pair of V shapes connected to the shoulder, and on the right hand, we can draw a helmet. The helmet is pretty much an oval and it overlaps the alien's body slightly.

To finish our alien drawing, we can draw the legs and feet. We can also draw a tail if you like. Finally, we can erase all the messy lines and we're done! Now we can color our alien. We can use colors that match the environment on the alien's planet or we can use bright, unnatural colors to make it look more out of this world.
