Hi, my name is Daisy, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a pirate boat. Now we're going to make sure that this is in the water so they'll be some shapes hiding. We'll start the front of it with kind of a triangle, but don't fill it in. That'll come across all the way one line until you hit the back of the boat. Which is just some curved lines like so. Let's put the water in so it really looks like it in. And then this would be what you see underneath. That's the basic shape of our pirate boat. I'm going to make this a little bit more three dimensional so we can see some of the other bits. Kind of looking down on the boat now. Just following the line up and across. Then if you want you can make railings, which are just lines that come all the way along to this point. And the same up here. Do the same on the other side, just lines coming down. Couple lines this way to look like stairs. Now we need masts. So we're going to draw a couple long big thick lines upwards. And one on the back. And then the sails. And these to keep with it looking like it's three dimensional, they're going to be on a little bit of an angle, and the sails are billowing out. Just like the wind is blowing them forward. Take out these lines. Another couple sails underneath. And on the back, we'll draw a triangle sail. You can finish off with more detail if you like. Just a couple lines and triangles. And last but not least, a crow's nest. And that can be any shape. I kind of draw a semicircle and color it in. And there we go. My name is Daisy, and that's how you draw a pirate boat.
