Draw A Sun In Python Using Turtle

In this tutorial I will show you how to draw a sun in python using the turtle module, turtle is a GUI library which can be used to draw anything from characters, cartoons, shapes and other objects in python.

Python Code To Draw A Sun


# Import the turtle module and all its functions
from turtle import *

# Set the fill color to orange and the pen color to yellow
color('orange', 'yellow')

# Begin filling the shape with the current fill color
begin_fill()

# Loop indefinitely (until the program is stopped manually)
while True:
  # Move the turtle forward 350 pixels
  forward(350)
  # Turn the turtle left by 170 degrees
  left(170)
  # Turn the turtle right by 280 degrees
  right(280)
  
  # Check if the turtle's position is close to the starting point (within 1 pixel)
  if abs(pos()) < 1:
    # If it is, exit the loop
    break

# End the fill operation
end_fill()

# Stop the turtle graphics window from closing immediately
done()
