This easy tutorial will help you learn to draw a cartoon helicopter! These nice machines are fascinating! They can fly at high speed or stay in a stationary position in the sky for a long period of time!

Step 1

Then, add some rectangles to form the tail fin and the tail rotor. Make sure the rotor is not drawn in the same orientation as the tail fin to avoid confusion. You can also sketch the landing skids.

Finally, work on the tail so that all parts are joined together. You can add the remaining part of the landing skids on the far side. I also added a small logo on the side of the fuselage to make it more appealing.
