How To Draw 3D Shapes


This tutorial will teach you how to draw 3d shapes. Begin by drawing a line across your paper. This is the horizon.

Now draw a rectangle. Draw it carefully so the top and bottom are parallel with the horizon, and the sides are parallel with the sides of your paper.

Draw a second rectangle, and congratulations, you're done! You've just made a 3d box!

Now play around a little, and try making more boxes. Change the length and width of your rectangle, and make your boxes above and below the horizon. Experiment and have fun!
