Here’s how to draw an easy airplane that carries just a couple of passengers, instead of your average jumbo jet. They have a lot of shapes in common.
Airplanes come in many shapes and sizes so it’s fun to know how to draw more than just one. Jumbo jets that carry hundreds of passengers are on one end of the spectrum, and single engine planes, on the other.
This tutorial shows students how to draw one of those smaller type planes, one that can carry just a couple of people. The wings and tail are the same as a jumbo jet but for this plane, the front end keeps a more old-fashioned look. The blunt shape and extra large propeller account for that.
With a bit of alteration, this could be turned into one of those vintage fighter planes, or perhaps like the one Amelia Earhart flew back in her day. A little bit of detailing added to the wings and body will always give any plane an extra cool look!
