This simple drawing lesson will show you how to draw a cartoon rocket! Since the beginning of time, man has always been fascinated by the moon. The first sci-fi movies were depicting man travelling to the moon using simple rockets. 

Of course, we now know that it takes more than just a rocket to travel to the moon... and come back! Still, let's try to draw one of these amusing objects right now!

Step 1

How to draw a cartoon rocket

To create the body of your rocket, sketch a long and thin oval shape. Try to find the perfect balance between a large rocket (which should not be effective enough to work) and one that is too thin (after all, we are not drawing a missile!).

Step 2

To illustrate the fins of the rocket, draw a square at an angle close to 45 degrees. Then, add a triangle below this shape like shown above. For the fin located in the middle of the rocket since it's visible only from the side, a rectangle will do for now.
