Today we will show you a very simple way to make a 3-dimensional Star of David or 6-pointed star. This type of star is also called a nautical star. Follow the upcoming step-by-step directions and you will be able to draw it easily in the future.
How to Draw 6-sided Nautical Stars with Easy Step by Step Drawing Tutorial
(A) Draw a circle either with a compass, by tracing a cup, or just freehand. Keep the legs of the compass at the same distance apart as they were when you drew the circle. This distance is the radius of the circle.
(B) This distance, the radius, will go around the circle 6 times as seen in image B. You will then have 6 marks on your circle…each equal distance apart.
Now draw a triangle from the top dot to the 2 bottom-side dots. You should do this with a ruler or a straight-edged object.
Now draw an upside down triangle with the remaining dots. You now have a ‘Star of David’ or a ‘6-sided star’.
Now erase everything other than the outline of the star. Then draw a line, with a ruler, from the top to the bottom of the star. Then draw a line from the side of the star to the other side of the star. Then draw 2 ‘x’ shaped diagonal lines to the remaining corners of the star…as seen in the picture above.
You can now add shadows to every other triangle by coloring these ones in black.
I hope that this tutorial helped you to draw 6-sided Nautical Stars and that you had a lot of fun 🙂
