Even if you aren't an artist, you can draw complex figures by simply dividing them down into simple geometric shapes. Whether you are drawing an aeroplane for your child, or teaching them how to draw, follow these simple steps to create the base drawing for a jet aeroplane. Once you finish drawing the basic body of the plane you can begin to add details such as plane names, numbers, or designs.
- Skill level:
Draw the body of the aeroplane. Using your pencil, draw a long oval shape with a pointed back end (the tail).
Add wings to the aeroplane. Positioning your pencil tip halfway down the length of the aeroplane body, draw one triangular wing that descends downward at an angle from the body of the aeroplane. Draw a second wing jetting upward at an angle on top of the aeroplane. Both tips of the wings should be pointed slightly toward the back of the aeroplane to give the plane perspective.
Draw the aeroplane's vertical and horizontal stabilisers. Draw two small triangular horizontal stabilisers located on the tail of the aeroplane. The horizontal stabilisers should be parallel to the aeroplane's wings. Draw a single triangular vertical stabiliser on top of the aeroplane's tail.
Draw two circular jet engines. Each jet engine should be located halfway down the aeroplane's wings, below the wing itself.
Add windows. Draw a rectangular cockpit window at the front of the aeroplane's body. Add small circular windows along the aeroplane's body.
