Prerequisite: Python Turtle Basics

Turtle is an inbuilt module of python. It enables us to draw any drawing by a turtle and methods defined in the turtle module and by using some logical loops. To draw something on the screen(cardboard) just move the turtle(pen).To move turtle(pen) there are some functions i.e forward(), backward(), etc
Approach to draw a Spiraling Star of size n: 

  • import turtle and create a turtle instance.
  • Using for loop(i=0 to i<n) and repeat below step
    • turtle.forward(i*10)
    • turtle.right(144)
  • close the turtle instance.
     

Python3




# importing turtle module
import turtle
  
# number of sides
n = 10
  
# creating instance of turtle
pen = turtle.Turtle()
  
# loop to draw a side
for i in range(n):
    # drawing side of 
    # length i*10
    pen.forward(i * 10)
  
    # changing direction of pen 
    # by 144 degree in clockwise
    pen.right(144)
  
# closing the instance
turtle.done()
