Airplane Tutorial Video
Airplanes come in many shapes and sizes, but there is one easy way to categorize them – by how they are propelled forward. Those three categories include jet engine, propeller and rocket engine. Most airplanes are flown by a pilot, but some are designed to be remotely or computer-controlled with drones.
The very first plane, was of course invented by the Wright brothers back in 1903. Since then, aircraft technology continued to develop through the development of the first jetliner in 1952. This tutorial is a nod to that classic looking looking aircraft that was in service for over 50 years.

Airplane Drawing Materials
- Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
- Pencils. Don’t waste your money on the cheapest brand. These make nice dark lines.
- Black Marker. The perfect medium size tip marker for tracing.
- Crayons. I like this non-toxic brand that is made from beeswax, not petroleum by-products.
