How to Draw – 3D Cube step by step – Pencil Shading

Hi friends, as I always say sketching are very important for drawing. You can follow my tips to improve your sketching skill.

            So here are some tips how to sketch 3D cubes, how to draw and shade.

Tools: Type of pencil-HB,2B,4B,6B and ruler.




 It is very easy to make a cube if you know the right steps. So draw a square and give a point in the center of the square. Then draw another square of which the vertex is the center of the first square. Join respective corners to get the cubic shape. To make it a proper cube erase the inner lines of the first square and also erase the inner line of the right plane of the cube.



STEP 1: If you are very beginner then I recommend using ruler for drawing a cube. First draw a two perpendicular line, then draw four vertical lines parallel to the perpendicular (first should be 1/2 inch from the perpendicular). Then draw four lines 1 inch from the horizontal and draw 10 boxes. Then give a point half inch from the box. And then use same method in the side box of exact lower step then same as other steps till the end. Then add all the points. Then you will get the cubic shape just erase the extra lines left here. Then finally correct and draw the outlines.

Very carefully follow the step 1. It is very important step. Carefully follow the recommended measurement.



STEP 2: Then let us consider light coming from left side. Then lightly shade the left side of the cubes. Then deeply shade the right part of the column of cubes. Then you will get the proper 3D cubes.
