Start Drawing: PART 9 – Draw a Simple Boat

More videos

Did you know you can draw a boat by using a number ‘8’? I’ll show you how in this drawing tutorial. Once you have identified the number ‘8’ and sketched the edges of the boat the basic shape is achieved. I’ll take you through how to draw the planks that make up the boat and how to add the shading to make the boat look three dimensional. I’ll also explain how to create and draw the reflection of the boat in the water. This art tutorial is aimed at beginners and those who want to improve their drawing skills.
