Hi. My name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to a Trireme Battleship. This is an old style boat, lots of oaL so I'm going to try and keep it as simple as possible. It's got a lot of detail. So, a long line going across and then the back is going to be shorter than the front. So, the front here we just fill in like so. So, let's see some water in, so this will never see the bottom of the ship. That's really a basic ship outline. We're going to draw a mast, so just a straight line at a little bit of an angle coming at its back. And then this one, straight up and down. Both of these have more wood coming across which holds the sails. And we can draw the sails like so. Let's get rid of these lines as we won't really see them behind the sails. Connect them with some ropes. Lots of old ships have a lot of ropes so you can go crazy with lots of lines straight and not straight. So, now we get into the detail of the actual ship. I'm going to add a curved triangle in the back. Color that in. And then lots of lines coming out into the water. And these are all the oars that are propelling the boat, lots of people inside and using these to make the boat go forward. So, we can use as many lines as we want. Keep this as simple as possible. And then the front comes out a little bit further with a long intricate design. And these differ. Mine is just going to be a lattice work. Put some more rope down here. And then I'm going to put in a really simple shading through here for where the actual oars come out. It looks, obviously they need windows to come out. But let's keep it simple because there's a lot of oars to deal with. And there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw a Trireme Battleship.
