I create a lot of drawings with months in them so I decided to make a blog post dedicated to the ideas of drawings with the moon.
Moons are such a simple thing to draw, but they add an element of dreaming and aesthetic beauty to your art.
I hope this inspires you to add even more months to your doodles!
Drawing tip: I recommend that you first create a pencil sketch of your drawing. Then, if you want, you can go over that sketch with an ink pen. Then wipe the sketch underneath once the ink dries.
Also, if it helps – use a round object to help you draw a circle (roll of washi tape or the base of a cup).
Honestly, I think it’s okay if the shape of the moon isn’t perfect, because it gives a more hand-drawn feeling 🙂 I hope this helps!
And most of all, enjoy the scribble!
Let’s start by drawing a crescent. Below are a few different styles to draw them.
2. The Full Moon
Next, let’s practice drawing a full month.
I created the drawing below using a pencil. Create craters by creating darker round shadows in your circle.
3. The Moon and the Sun.
This drawing idea is from the other blog post of my 40 simple tattoo ideas.
I combined the moon and the sun into one drawing doodle idea.

The drawing was inspired by a story I heard about Natsume Soseki telling one of his students that in Japanese, the saying “The moon is beautiful, isn’t it?” it is a subtle, poetic way of saying “I love you.”
