Step 1

How to draw a cartoon boat step 1

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!

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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!

Step 4
