You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Start by outlining the hull. Draw a long curve with a “U” shape on one end and a spiral pattern on the other. The spiral head is called the sternum, and the opposite end is the tubular bone.

Step 2

Draw the bottom of the hull with a long curve. Use a series of curves to outline the mouth and teeth of the wooden dragon head on top of the straw. Use the pairs of curves to draw the dragon’s ears and paint an oval for its eyes.

Step 3

Draw a curve from the top of the sternum and the hull to the bottom of the hull, outlining the hull. Then, draw a straight, thick, vertical line up from the center of the boat. This forms the masts that will support the sails.

Step 4

Draw a curve from the hull to the stern – that is, front to back – directly above the hull. This points out the opposite side of the ship and gives it a three-dimensional shape. Then, draw two pairs of lines across the column, erasing as needed. Connect each pair of wires at both ends. This is called the pitch.

Step 5

Draw a long, wavy line between each side of the yard and the hull, erasing as needed. The ship’s side structure is made of curves, boards or ligaments.

Step 6

Draw lines from the mast to the ship below. Draw curves around the stem and flower tail where some ropes are tied.

Step 7

Draw shields, erase as needed. For each shield, draw a circle within a circle.

Step 8

Draw the paddle. Next to each barrier, draw a thick, dark line toward the water surface. At the top of it, draw a “U” shape and connect the ends with a line.

Step 9

Complete your drawing for the last time. Erase where you need it. Next we will color the viking ship.

Step 10

Color your animated Viking ship. The color and pattern of the shields on its sides often indicate who is on board.
