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. :)
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!).
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.
Work on the outline of each fins to make them smooth and curved. For the middle fin, just make the top larger than the bottom.
Add a window near the middle of the rocket. Don't forget to sketch a frame around your window!
To make our rocket a little more colorful, draw two lines to separate the middle of the rocket from the top and the bottom.
Add some colors to give life to your object!
Finally, add some shadows to add more realism and depth to your illustration! And there you go! A nice and simple rocket drawing! It might not be the latest model in the great world of technology, but it's still a very efficient one! Have fun!
