The written step-by-step video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Draw a curved, vertical line for the front part of the boat. From the top of that line, lightly sketch a longer line that slopes to the right for the top part of the boat. The longer this line is, the longer the boat will be. When you get the length right, darken the line. On the right side, draw a smaller vertical line for the back of the boat.
Step 2: At the front, draw another curved, vertical line to make the ship wider and three-dimensional. The top part should angle a bit to create a pointy tip.
Step 3: On the bottom of the front side, draw a series of curved lines for the water splashing. On the left side, the lines for the water should curve to the left, and they should curve right on the right side. Add a few wavy lines at the bottom for the surface of the water. Now draw a series of wavy lines along the bottom all the way to the back of the boat for the surface of the water.
Step 4: Draw a couple of lines along the top part of the boat for a striped design. The stripe on the left of the boat will be short, while the stripe on the right will be long. The stripes should be parallel to the top edge of the boat. Sketch lightly at first. The stripe should gradually get narrower toward the back. When you get the shape right, darken the lines.
Step 5: Draw three to five circles inside the stripe for windows. The circles should gradually get bigger the closer they are to the front of the ship.
