In this drawing lesson I’ll teach you a high demanded topic – how to draw a 3d cube!
Now, there are a lot of different videos / lessons on drawing a cube.
I want to put an emphasis on UNDERSTANDING how a cube looks from all angles, which will allow you to draw it in ANY angle you would like.
Sounds awesome? That’s because it is.
First – watch the vid. Than, read on for the key tips.
Okay, got it?! Now for the main points:
What is a Cube?
A cube is a three-dimensional object that has 6 equally sized sides. It also has 8 pointy angles.
Here is a transparent cube depicting this.
In reality, we can only see up to 3 planes of the cube.
Here is how it looks.
If we move the cube around, we will see less of certain sides and more of others.
This happens because when we look at things from an angle, they become squeezed. That’s called foreshortening, and will be covered in a separate post (=
Anyway, here are some cubes at different angles.
Notice how the in the center most cube – we can only see ONE side.
The ones above it are tilted upwards or downwards, and allow us to see TWO sides.
The rest are tilted both upwards / downwards, AND sideways. This allows use to see THREE sides.
That’s how it works (=
Hopefully now you can draw a 3D cube at ANY angle you wish!
