Drawing a cartoon boat: some fun facts before starting sketching!
This tutorial will help you learn how to draw a simple boat. This boat is made of a mainmast (2), the bow (3), some nice decorative flags (1) and a rudder (5).
Don't forget the main sail and the deck! This boat is a pirate one. That's why it looks a little messy! Since there are many many kinds of boats, you won't be able to learn all the different parts in this tutorial!
The shapes of our little pirate boat are really simple. The body of the boat could hold in a long rectangle. The main sail is long and tiny. The rudder is a small triangle. The four flags are made of a long and very narrow triangle. The rest of the boat is drawn with simple lines and a couple of rectangles.
For this example, let's draw a simple white boat. Draw a rectangle like the image below to form the body of the boat. Next, draw a square in the middle (and on top) of your rectangle. Now try to draw a more detail outline of the body of your boat.
Next, draw three rectangles to form the roof and the chimney. Draw a circle for the port-hole and add some color for a better looking boat!
Now you can try to draw a smaller boat (like a launch) if you prefer (2). You can also try the simplest way to draw a boat (5) by drawing one rectangle and two triangles. Drawing a boat is not so difficult. Just keep practicing and have fun!
