How to… draw a submarine by Simon Abbott!

All of our Convertibles have been illustrated by the wonderful Simon Abbott, who brings the vehicles to life in colourful detail. To celebrate the release of Convertible Submarine, Simon kindly shared his artistic secrets and a step-by-step guide for drawing your very own submarine. Now you can have a go...

Draw the body of the submarine. It looks like a balloon on its side!

Add a front and end section to the body


Add fins and connections to the submarine

Draw the periscope and propellers on so you can see where you are going

Draw a nice big porthole to look out of

Add details to the submarine so that it looks life-like

Finish by drawing yourself inside!
