In this article, we will guide you through the process of drawing spaceships in three different styles: easy, simple, and alien. Each style offers a unique perspective on the futuristic vessels that have captured our imaginations for decades. Whether you’re an aspiring artist or just looking for a fun creative activity, follow along and create your own interstellar masterpiece!
Spaceship Drawing Easy (Option 1)
To start, we’ll teach you how to draw a world-class elongated spaceship that can return from space on its own. This type of spaceship requires launch vehicles to put it into orbit, so we will also draw the accompanying transporter.
Begin by drawing diagonal parallel lines.
Close the contours of the carrier rocket, creating a main oval shape with sharp-nosed sides.
Outline the shuttle, paying attention to each specific part.
Work on the details of the shuttle to add depth and dimension.
You can choose to leave the drawing as a graphic or add colors to bring it to life.
Spaceship Drawing Simple (Option 2)
For a simpler approach, we’ll guide you in drawing a pencil triangle as the base of our spaceship. This will give your drawing a sharp nose that faces left.
Draw a simple pencil triangle as the foundation.
Add a horizontal line above the middle and slanted vertical lines on the edges to shape the spaceship.
Extend the spaceship by adding wings and cannons. Use a ruler for straighter lines if desired.
Erase unnecessary lines and refine the spaceship’s details. You can trace the main lines with a black pen or felt-tip pen for a polished look.
To add a pilot seat, draw a glass cover on top of the ship and depict the seat as shown.
Use color to bring your drawing to life. Add orange stripes to the spaceship, color the top part blue, and paint the curves and sides with blue.
Complete the drawing by outlining the spaceship and adding black shadows for depth.
Congratulations! Your simple spaceship drawing is now finished.
Spaceship Drawing Alien (Option 3)
If you’d like to add an extraterrestrial twist to your drawing, follow these steps to create an alien spaceship using pencils.
Prepare a white sheet of paper, a pencil, a sharpener, an eraser, and some tissues for smudging.
Begin by sketching the engine of the spaceship. Draw two oval shapes, which will serve as the body of the ship. Add a wing at the bottom and a tail at the back.
Connect the ovals to complete the spaceship’s structure. Feel free to follow the provided image or use your imagination to design your own rocket.
Add details to the hull, such as plates, portholes, and guns.
Refine and add further details to complete your spaceship drawing.
Congratulations! You’ve successfully created an alien-inspired spaceship drawing.
