How to draw an airliner in flight – 3d – with easy step by step instructions – A380 787

In this video, I break down the essential shapes that go to make up a passenger aircraft in easy, step by step stages, so you can draw or design your own airliner in flight, in 3D.

I show how planes are made of sections of cylinders and how they are drawn with ellipses.

To learn more about ellipses, see this video in my “Everyone Can Draw” free course. Follow the simple, step by step instructions, and you will be able to draw most modern airliners, as they are all built to pretty much the same plan.

I visited the National Trust property, Tyntesfield, especially to see the Sopwith Pup that was on show in a tent in the courtyard. Kelvyne Baker found it in a barn in Dorset in 1972 and has been restoring it ever since. It is truly a thing of beauty.

I heard all sorts of tales being told by old-timers who had flown or built similar things in the past. The airframe is lacking a linen covering, which allows us to see the intricacy and workmanship of the frame.

Everyone asks about the tools I use when I’m out using my sketchbook. Here’s a video to show you what and how I use them.
