STEP 1. Start with some basic guidelines so you have a nicely drawn out frame to work with for your row boat and old man. You will draw a shape that looks like half of a banana and then draw out the head and body guidelines of the random guy that is rowing the pretty boat.   STEP 2. Okay, now you will start drawing out the old man's face and shape of his actual head as seen here. He is bald on the top of his head so all you will be drawing is some hair on the side of his head. Next draw out the man's eyes, nose and mouth which is exaggerated to emphasis on how old he is, and then draw out the fingers on his hand which is holding the oar.   STEP 3. You will start sketching out the shirt starting with the collar lines and then the shape of his arm which is also the sleeve. Next draw a vertical line to complete the shape of his torso and then draw out the other hand as well as thicken the handle shape of the oar.   STEP 4. You will draw out the rest of the old man starting with his sleeve which is folded above the elbow, and then draw out the forearm. You will do the same to the other arm and then draw out the shape of his bent leg and knee.   STEP 5. Step five is the second to last step and all you will do here is draw out the boards on the wooden boat as you see it drawn out for you here. Once you are done drawing out the wooden boat, you can finish drawing the lower end of the paddle or oar. Draw a water line that is covering most of the paddle and then add water lines on the bottom of the boat. Erase all the guidelines that you drew in step one and then move to your last detailing step.   STEP 6. All you have to do here is sketch out all the water ripples that will make your row boat look like it is actually in water. That is all you have to do, you can choose to do some last minute touch ups before you move onto the last step.   STEP 7. Once you are finished your wooden boat should come out looking like the one you see here. All you have to do now is color in your work and you have just learned how to draw a row boat step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
