In this drawing tutorial, we will show that you can draw an aircraft. It’s an easy guide, but should you follow the set of steps, you’ll achieve a great outcome. Let’s start!

Step 1

Then trace the outline of the cockpit and the tail of the aircraft. The cabin shouldn’t be too large and round. When drawing something that resembles the shape of a ball, you might lose the realism of the final product. The cabin is uneven in its slope to the bottom. The rear of the helicopter is an increase in width in the center as well as small extensions on the sides and in front.



Step 2

We can now add a few elements that make our sketch appear like the real thing. With sketchy lines, we trace the outline of the rotor of the helicopter. Skids look similar to rough jagged lines found beneath the cabin. Also, in this stage, we draw out how the tail feathering is done on the helicopter.



Step 3

We will continue to follow the steps for drawing the outline of a helicopter. We have rough helicopter contours. We can now add details. We draw the glass as tiny figures, that are angular in the back, and round in the front. Then, we split the entire figure into multiple components by using two crossbars that are vertical.

In this stage, we’ll draw the contours of our tail rotor, which is situated in the rear of the helicopter.



Step 4

We will begin to work on our final cabin contours. In this phase, we draw smooth and round contours, and then erase any extra guidelines. The outside of the cab must be rounded, as we did in our illustration.



Step 5

This is the simplest step in the whole drawing lesson. In this step, we’ll erase any extra lines that are left from the back of the aircraft as well as in the tail’s tail rotor. With smooth, secure lines, we’ll complete these areas in the helicopter fully.


Step 6

We then sketched the cockpit and the tail of the aircraft. We’ll now tidy up the skids and also the main rotor. Therefore, we draw lines that have slight bends and sharpen around the edges for skids to be drawn. The lines must be as symmetrical and even as possible. The central portion of the rotor resembles the letter “T”. The blades are like regular long lines, but with a slight curve.



Step 7

In the final step after that, we’ll apply some shadows. It appears to be an illuminating shade that is at the side of the cockpit of the helicopter and the sides of the tail, and around the skids. Be sure to remember the little details that are placed on the windows of the cockpit. These tiny features can make your helicopter appear more real.
