Description: I want to submit another lesson that is military related, but this time have it be on something from the Navy. I have two lessons on two different military tanks, as well as a few tutorials that teach you to draw military weapons. For this tutorial I am going to teach you “how to draw an Aircraft carrier step by step.” One thing I like to do is draw stuff that nobody else has just to stay original and creative. I know that you guys must know that by now anyway, but I just figured I would get that out on the table just to let you know why I choose to draw the things I do. Well lets get on with this learning experience shall we? First off aircraft carries are humongous warships that stay idol on the open sea. The sole purpose for these ships is to enable aircrafts to deploy using a swift command. The planes will also come back to the aircraft carrier to land and park until it's next mission. I guess you could say that these warships are floating airbases much like an airport. Now the reason why aircraft carriers stay so far out on the sea is because it makes striking and protecting enemy planes a whole lot easier because the reach is a lot more attainable opposed to being inland. The very first aircraft carrier was placed on March 20, 1922. The vessels name was the USS Langley, and the ship was the Navy's first flight carrier. By the time July rolled around of the same year, congress allowed all unfinished battleships to be transformed or converted, into aircraft carries. The two battleships that were converted was Lexington and Sarstoga. Did you know that the first landing area for a plane on sea was made of wood? It's true, in the year of 1910, a polite named Eugene Ely flew his plane off a strip or platform made entirely out of wood. The wooden area was built aboard the USS Birmingham over the bow of the ship. Pretty cool huh? By the time the attack on Pearl Harbor came about, the U.S. Had several aircraft carriers out at sea. When the bombing happened, three vessels were untouched due to the fact that the carriers were not in the area at the time of attack. The ships that were left standing was the USS Saratoga, the USS Lexington, and the popular USS Enterprise. I did the best I could with this tutorial on "<b>how to draw an aircraft carrier</b>". I couldn't find any good pictures to reference from so I had to improvise, a lot. As of right now I am practicing on bettering my drawing skills for things like ships so later on down the road I can submit a lesson that will teach you “how to draw a battleship” in clarity. This lesson is going to be placed under the advanced category, but anybody can give it a go. I will be back later with another fun tutorial. Be sure to join me live tonight as I am drawing another dragon for a project I am doing. If you want to read more on aircraft carriers, just visit the <a href="http://www.navy.mil/navydata/ships/carriers/carriers.asp">US Navy</a> and you will find all the information you need. Peace out people and happy drawing!
