How to draw color filled star in Python-Turtle?

  • Last Updated : 08 Oct, 2020

Prerequisite: Turtle Programming Basics, Draw Color Filled Shapes in Turtle

Turtle is an inbuilt module in Python. It provides drawing using a screen (cardboard) and turtle (pen). To draw something on the screen, we need to move the turtle (pen). To move the turtle, there are some functions i.e forward(), backward(), etc.
 

Approach:

The following steps are used:

  • Import turtle
  • Set window screen
  • Set color of the turtle
  • Form a star
  • Fill the star with the color

Below is the implementation.

Python3




# importing package
import turtle
 
# function to draw
# colored star
def colored_star():
     
    # size of star
    size = 80
     
    # object color
    turtle.color("red")
     
    # object width
    turtle.width(4)
     
    # angle to form star
    angle = 120
     
    # color to fill
    turtle.fillcolor("yellow")
    turtle.begin_fill()
     
    # form star
    for side in range(5):
        turtle.forward(size)
        turtle.right(angle)
        turtle.forward(size)
        turtle.right(72 - angle)
         
    # fill color
    turtle.end_fill()
 
# Driver code
colored_star()

 
 

Output :

 

Since, as of now, you must have learned how to draw and fill color in a star. So, let’s try something unique with this knowledge. Let’s use some creativity and programming to build a night full of stars.

Python3




import turtle
from random import randint
 
window = turtle.Screen()
turtle.bgcolor("black")
turtle.color("yellow")
turtle.speed(0)
 
def draw_star():
    turns = 6
    turtle.begin_fill()
    while turns>0:
        turtle.forward(25)
        turtle.left(145)
        turns = turns-1
    turtle.end_fill()
 
nums_stars = 0
while nums_stars <50:
    x=randint(-300,300)
    y=randint(-300,300)
    draw_star()
    turtle.penup()
    turtle.goto(x,y)
    turtle.pendown()
    nums_stars = nums_stars + 1
 
window.exitonclick()
