Version 1:Easiest way of Drawing a Perfect Star

We are really excited to share this tutorial with you as it’s the easiest way to draw a perfect star! And it’s only 4 steps! You can draw it with a pencil and outline your end drawing with a marker, or just leave as it is, with all the lines – since these kind of stars look pretty cool anyway.

Step 1

Start by drawing a letter A, without the horizontal line.

Step 2

Draw a horizontal line, in the upper third of the “A” letter.

Step 3

Almost there, only two pencil strokes away. All that is left to do is to “connect the dots”, draw a line from one end of the horizontal line let’s say left to the bottom right end of the “letter A”.

You are almost there

Step 4

Do the same with the other side.
