In this drawing lesson you will learn how to draw a helicopter. This guide is very helpful and consists of only nine easy steps.
So, now I will show and tell you how to draw a helicopter step by step. I created this drawing lesson especially for children and beginner artists, so you can easily cope with it. If you follow my instructions carefully, you can draw a helicopter quickly and easily.
A helicopter is an aircraft with one or more power-driven horizontal propellers or rotors that enable it to take off and land vertically, to move in any direction, or to remain stationary in the air. You may have seen a helicopter many times in various movies, cartoons, and also alive or even flying it.
I am sure that this lesson will be useful for you and that you will be able to apply the skills you have learned when creating other drawings, such as a cityscape, an island, or the sky. Now you can start to draw. I wish you good luck with your drawing!
