Hey guys, Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw airplanes and bi-planes. I'm going to do the bi-plane first. So, what I'm going to do is I'm going to start off here with like and arc that kind of goes up just a little bit. And then it comes back down, and then here's the propeller. I'm going to draw just a circle, a couple of propellers coming out the side. And then a line going down the bottom. And this is where the first wings come in. I'm going to bring a line going down like that and along, along the side just like that. This here is going to be the cockpit. So, what I'm going to do is I'm going to do an arc just like that, a line like that and then just a couple of lines going up. And then over on this side, another wing and that's going to be on the opposite side. So, it's going to be going behind a little bit. For the top wing, I'm just going to start up here, go along and it's going to stop just short of this bottom wing, just to make sure we have the right dimensions here. Bring it back to the top here and finish it off. Now, of course because this wing is on top, we're going to have to erase this line. Take this guy out of there. And finish this along the bottom. And connect these two here, a couple of lines just like that. And finish off the cockpit. And then for the back of the plane, what I'm going to do is I'm just going to finish this off a little bit and bring this line out and bring another line out just like that. And draw a couple, just an oval like that and a line going up. And of course we're going to have to erase that line because that line is behind. So, that's your basic bi-plane for you. Maybe if you want to draw a design on the side you can do that. Do some shading along the back and the bottom. It's really up to you. Now, for an airplane, what we're going to do is I'm going to take a line and draw it all the way to the back there, arcing a little bit down in the front for the nose of the plane. And underneath, I'm going to connect that and just bring it just a little bit, not as far but about half way. Now, we're going to draw the wing. So, what I'm going to do for that is I'm going to take one line going this way, kind of flatten out the end, and bring it back going like that. Connect that and then the other side, the other wing. Going to go like that and like that. We're going to draw the cockpit up here. And make sure you make that first line an arc just so it kind of, the contour goes along with the shape of the plane. Connect it like that. Two lines going there. Maybe some engines here. And for the back of the plane, what we're going to do is we're going to bring a line going up just like that and one that goes up like that, kind of all, keep them square edged out like that and on the other side like that. Maybe you want to put on some windows or something. It's really up to you. And they're all flying around. And that's how you draw airplanes and bi-planes. So, good luck guys and stay creative.
