It is not very difficult to draw an airplane. You must know its structure to be able to draw it. The only challenge lies in drawing the wings and tail of the plane. War airplanes have a different shape from the passenger ones. In this lesson, we will learn the steps to drawing a military aircraft.
Draw a block plane.
Let's begin our drawing with the basic outline of the body of an airplane. To do this, draw a long straight line. On one edge, draw a square for the cockpit and two slanted lines for the wings. Continue toward the end of the line and draw two lines for the rear wings branched out from the aircraft. Right next to them, draw two more lines for the other wing.
The major parts of an airplane.
Now you need to carefully draw other parts of the airplane, with as much precision as possible. Start with the nose of the aircraft. Draw the shape of the nose similar to that of a rocket. Then sketch the body of the plane towards the wings. Next draw flaps. Then spend some time on the tail. Draw two pairs of smaller wings, like the previous ones. Behind them, make a line with two turbines.
Bow section plane.
Draw the details on the bow of the aircraft. To do this, draw a very large circle. Add a short line. Press harder with your pencil over your tentative lines from before and connect them to the wings in a smooth transition.
Now you need to add wings to your aircraft. First, pivot the other two lines from the midline of the wings. Add flaps onto the sides of the front. The ends of each wing look like that of a small rocket. Then work on the remaining details.
How to draw an Airplane. Final stage.
At this point, we erase all unnecessary lines from our drawing and add the finishing touches to the airplane. Remember to place turbines and fuel tanks, both of which enable the flight, near the rear of the plane.
Painting military aircraft.
Now we will paint the plane with military overtones. This can be a fighter plane. We will need three colors for camouflage coloring. If you're using watercolor, apply paint in smooth rounded movements. If you'd like, you can draw a pilot in the cockpit of the airplane. To create smoother transitions and lessen the contrast of lines in your drawing, you can swipe over the lines with your fingertip.
