How To Draw A Roller Coaster

Artist: koreacow / February 5, 2010

Step 1.

First draw the guidelines for the railway of the roller coaster. Then draw two squares to be the guidelines for the train.

Step 2.

Now draw the frames for the railway. And also draw a basic outline of the train. You will only draw the outside the train and leave some open spaces to put the seats in later. The trains will kind of shape like two half way done-pick up truck now.

Step 3.

Now draw the seats in the train. Then you will draw the railway and add on the framework on it. You will only draw the middle railway now, because it’s the closest one, and we will give it more details than the ones behind it.

Step 4.

Next you will draw few details on the train, such as the headlight and wheels. Then draw the frameworks on the back railways.

Step 5.

Give all the railways more details.

Step 6.

Now add on the shading lines on the train. And don’t forget the little flags on top of the roller coaster.

Step 7.

And we did it! Now all you need to do is color it as you like. And I will see you guys again in my next tutorial!

Description: Hello my friends from Today I am going to do another tutorial of my amusement part series. And what I will show you today is "<strong>how to draw a roller coaster, step by step</strong>". How could you forget about roller coasters when you think of theme parks right? Roller coasters are definitely one of the most popular rides in amusement parks. The first Roller coaster was built in Saint Petersburg, Russia, in the 17th century. In 1884 Coney Island opened up the famous Switchback railway. Just like the Ferris wheel, today every country is competing who has the highest or fastest roller coaster. If you had joined me in my Ferris wheel tutorial, you probably know that I have a phobia of Ferris wheels. Roller coaster seem to be scarier than Ferris wheel, but maybe because it is so fast, I can’t even tell that I am hanging in the sky, unless the engine breaks down and we are actually stuck in the sky hanging upside down, that would seriously freak me out! I’m not even going to think about it any more now. Anyway, I really hope you guys will have a good time joining me on drawing the roller coaster. This might be one of the hardest tutorials after The Great Wall of China. Because the structure is pretty complicated, so I hope you all will be really patient doing the drawing, and if you love <a href="">roller coasters </a> like I do, you will have fun coloring them in as well. Good luck!
