Today, we’re going to draw a cube.
We talked about cylinders and now we’ll talk about cubes or box-like shapes. Again, we’re not going into any geometry, just using the shapes to start off our drawings.
Although we are drawing a cube, some of our box-shapes are actually cuboids or rectangular prisms, but that really doesn’t matter here so much. We’re going to make the shapes and then have fun adding our own twists!
Always REMEMBER when you’re starting your drawing to use a whisper line, this is important so you can erase your pencil lines cleanly when your finishing your artwork.
Here are some cubes and box-shapes that I found in my studio:
One square, then another, and draw the connecting lines and then erase the backlines….remember that whisper-line we spoke of?
Here’s another method, draw two dots and in the middle of those dots add another dot on top and one below. then drop the three front lines vertically. And make the bottom of your cube’s lines follow in the same direction as the tops.You can add a shadow, or shading or you can try making something from your box-shape, here I made a cereal box:
And the a pair of dice, a gift box with a bow, and a truck:I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Please share your gorgeous drawings with us here at The Draw Page, then we can share them in the gallery. send them to me at [email protected]
