Hey guys, it's Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw a WWI German triplane. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to start off with the front here and just kind of draw an arc and then continue this down almost at a swoop and this is going to be the front of the plane and this is going to be the back. So it gets a little bit smaller at the back. So I'm just going to start off with doing something like that. Now we've got the propeller in the front which is going to kind of go just like this and it could be spinning. You can make them any color you want so it's really up to you. If you want to make them white, that would be perfect. I'm going to draw a couple dots here in the front and then what I'm going to do is I'm going to draw the wings. So a triplane has three different sets of wings so what I'm going to do is first at the bottom, I'm going to draw just a line going just like that at a little bit of an angle but not too much and if you want to fill it in a little bit on this side that's totally fine. And then I'm going to draw another one. This one is kind of going along the top here and make that go at a little, an angle going a little bit up and you can fill that in if you want underneath just like that and then we have another one at the top. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to take another, have another line and start from here and kind of bring it up just a little bit. And that one goes a little bit past all these so they should be kind of going at a little bit of an angle going up and what I'm going to do is draw a line going diagonally there and then a line going here, a line going here and then kind of connect them. And then I'm going to color this in just to show that it's the top of a wing here, draw a couple wheels underneath. You could do that just by doing that and then connect them here. And then for the tail what we're going to do is we're just going to kind of close this off at the end and bring it back up like that and now all of these have to be connected so what I'm going to do is I'm going to connect one here and one here to where the wings are. That's going to be a V there and I'm going to connect one here and connect one here and then underneath the plane I'm going to finish off the tail. I'm going to draw just a line going up like that and a line going like that. And then on the side German triplanes usually have the logo of the cross so what I'm going to do is I'm just going to draw a little cross logo there and some room for the cockpit. It's flying along. And there's also a wheel in the back. Alright guys so that's how you draw a WWI German triplane. So good luck and stay creative.
