How to Draw a Rocket Ship

Artist: Canttell / June 18, 2009

Step 1.

Draw a simple cylinder.

Step 2.

Add a nose cone. (Tip for newbies: this is just a triangle with a rounded bottom.)

Step 3.

Put on fins. the side ones are kind of shark-fin shaped, but for now just a simple rectangle out front. It might help to draw one and get it right and then draw a line across the rocket at the top and bottom to keep the other two the same.

Step 4.

Rocket Boosters! Each has 3 ovals. Try to make the 2 forward ones a little longer than the rear one. Don't forget the flames!

Step 5.

Put a window on. This is just one circle inside another with some little dots and a stick-man-astronaut.

Step 6.

Draw stars around and a sun in the corner.

Step 7.

Now go over the lines you want to keep in pen.

Step 8.

Erase your pencil lines. Note: You are now done. But if you want Yours Truly to give you a couple of shading tips, keep reading.

Step 9.

The shadow from the rectangle fin is the same shark-fin shape as the side fins. It will probably overlap the left rocket booster.

Step 10.

Everything on the left gets shaded. There! Now you're done! Have fun colouring!

Description: This is just a really easy little rocket ship. It might seem a little long, 10 steps, but the last two are just shading tips, so you can stop at step 8 if you want. (It's not exactly a Sci-Fi space craft, but there was a NASA one in this category, so I figured I was safe putting it here.:)
