How to Draw a Helicopter (drawing tips)

Step 1

To doodle a helicopter, begin by drawing what looks like a teardrop. However, whereas a regular teardrop has a point at the top, our helicopter teardrop has its point on the right. This teardrop will now become the cockpit or main body of our helicopter doodle.

Next, let’s doodle the landing legs of our helicopter. Drawing our landing legs can be a little tricky. It involves using curved and straight lines. Notice also how these lines are spaced and the length of each line within the example.


Step 3

To doodle the propeller of our helicopter, use curved lines that kind of look like elongated teardrop shapes. Because this is a cartoon helicopter, we won’t draw the propeller to size. We’ll rather make it smaller than it is in real life.

The next step is to doodle the window for the cockpit of our helicopter. Use a curved line for this purpose as shown within the example.


Step 5

Let’s now add the final touches to our helicopter doodle. First, use slightly curved lines on the body and window of our helicopter to showcase that it has a rounded and reflective surface. You can then add a slight shadow effect on the top and back propellers using straight lines. And to show that the propellers are spinning, use curved lines around the propellers as shown within the example. When done, add the finishing touches to your helicopter by giving it some color.
