How to Draw the Mayflower, Mayflower

Artist: Dawn / February 21, 2013

Step 1.

Begin by drawing the base of the ship. This is a box like shape that dips a bit at the top line. Add the guides in the center, then proceed to step two.

Step 2.

Draw out the actual shape of the ship, then draw the first sheet for the ship's sail like so. This is the front part of the boat.

Step 3.

You will need to draw out the post which is what supports the sails. Draw in all the rope that stretches from one side of the sails to the other. The point should also be drawn in accurately because it is the top of the post.

Step 4.

Next, draw the sails in the back of the whole set you just made previously. Draw the ropes, as well as the flag at the top of the sail.

Step 5.

Add all the detailing to the base of the boat's outer exterior. Erase the mistakes and let's see what the Mayflower ship looks like as line art.

Step 6.

Here is the Mayflower folks. Color it in to perfection to complete the task.

Description: If you study history or are learning history as of right now, you'll know that the Mayflower was the first ship of settlers that came to Native American occupied 'New World', and started the first colony here. The Mayflower transported 102 English Pilgrims who wanted to break free from England. They were the settlers who survived a harsh change of environment in the New World, with the help of nearby Indians. Did you know their first colony was set up in Plymouth, Massachusetts? It's pretty cool, being a person who lived in Rhode Island and all. Anyways, I know you guys probably won't enjoy this too much, since it's kind of an old historical lesson; but for those of you who need a Mayflower drawing for your history projects, I hope you'll have fun with this! Thanks so much for viewing and keep an eye out for more of the cool drawing tuts. Peace!
