Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the double-decker. Define the general proportions. Draw ovals that will become wheels.

Step 2

Show, with a semicircle and a vertical dividing line, a cabin. Add lines to define the width of the wheels.

Step 3

With straight lines, show a bus part where all of the windows will be places.

Step 4

Define the shapes of the windows and doors.

Step 5

Work on the figure by adding new details to the cabin. Define headlights, bus window frames and bus door rubbers.

Step 6

Draw the wheels. Add a rack and a board. Draw additional lines to show the cabin shape.

Step 7

Work on the figure of the double decker, paying special attention to small details, parts and components.

Step 8

Contour, trying to vary the thickness and blackness of the line. Draw more details. Delineate a road and trees.
