We are here with how to draw hot-air balloon for kids and beginners which are also the predates of airplane. These are also called as airships or dirigibles which are humans first successful attempts at flight.
Are you interested in drawing hot air balloon? Now, this requires you to follow the given step by step drawing tutorial which is very simple and easy. Along with this tutorial you also need a paper, pencil, an eraser and some fancy bright colors. There is no requirement for any other spcial tools, always try to draw free hand rather than using compass or scale.
So. lets begin the drawing with this tutorial and render our manned craft in easy way.
How to draw a hot-air balloon:
Step 1: Hot air balloon is very big in size so mark the height and width of the balloon. Draw a circle with a long line passing from the center.
Step 2: Draw a small line on the long line and draw a diagonal line from it joining towards the outer wall of the circle.
Step 3: Draw one more horizontal line and a small rectangle as a hook and another cube attached to it for the basket.
Step 4: Draw flatten oval inside the circle covering the width of the circle, draw another 2 ovals at the lower end.
Step 5: Draw longitudinal lines going towards the upper part from the lower end.
Step 6: Shape the upper part with small curved lines. Attach the basket with the 4 strings with the hoop.
Step 7: Shape the upper part of the oval into small curves, also shape the lower part with ovals and the basket.
Step 8: Darken the lines and the outlines of the drawing. Add few shades and the clouds in the sky.
Step 9: Erase all the guidelines and the lower part of the ovals and contour the drawing.
Step by step hot-air balloon:
Hot air ballon working is quite interesting. It is filled with hot air, helium, or hydrogen, gasses which are lighter than air, they provides a lift to the ballon. When it was discovered wool or light materials are used to burn below the ballon and with its heat gases put pressur in upward direction to help rising ballon. But now a days special type of burners are used.
As the technology groe the usage of this balloon diminishes but in initial days they are also used for scientific research. Also helpful in studying in earths upper atmosphere. Weather balloon have many instruments which can measure temperature, pressure, wind speed, and other variables. They are also man crafted.
How to draw a hot-air balloon for kids:
Step 1: Draw a small oval, and start drawing a curved line in an upward direction from both the ends and form a big oval on the top or a bulb shape. Ten further draw a curved line in the lower part.
Step 2: Draw 4 lines from the oval coming out for the rope and joining them with the small flat line.
Step 3: Draw 2 curved lines attached with the rectangles. Draw clouds around the balloon using the number of curved lines in a random manner.
Step 4: Draw many long curved lines intersecting them with 2 horizontal curved lines so that stripes of the balloon formes. You can decore it with the other pattern also, only by drawing horizontal or vertical lines.
Step 5: Color your drawing using bright pop-up colors.
