How to Draw A Cartoon Rocket



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! You can start with the video version below. The written tutorial can be found after the video. :)



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.

Step 3
