Artist: Dawn / February 9, 2013

Step 1.

Begin by drawing an oval shape like so, then draw in the strings as well as the boat shape.

Step 2.

The shape of the airships is going to stay the same as the guide you just drew, which means what you have to do here is draw in is all the pieces that makes up the surface of the airship. You will need to color in the small bolt or rivet holes, then    

Step 3.

Next, draw in the support ropes, as well as the two tail fins. Sketch in the detailing on the fins like so, then move to the next drawing step.

Step 4.

Define the shape of ship or boat which is almost exactly the outlined structure that you made in the first step.

Step 5.

Here you will begin sketching in all the detailing and definition to make the boat look wooden. Add some texture to the front and back part of the boat. Draw in two different sized, and designed windows as well as the rope loops along the edge of the   

Step 6.

Before we finish this airship off, we will need to draw out the steam stacks like so, as well as the great big steam cloud that is coming from the steam stack. Erase the mistakes and guides before you sketch in the detailing on the rest of the boat.

Step 7.

When you are done your airship should look like the one you see here. Color it in using the shades of your choice.
