How to Draw the Number 1 in 3D


Draw 3-D block letters quickly and easily with a writing utensil and a ruler. It is possible to finish three-dimensional numbers and letters by drawing freehand, but for the best results a straight edge is strongly encouraged. Starting out drawing the number 1 in 3-D is a great way to prepare yourself for taking on more complicated words and perhaps phrases. Use a clean, flat surface with enough room for you to rotate your drawing as necessary.

Things You'll Need

  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Ruler
  • Draw a block number 1.

  • Place another block number 1 slightly to the right and below the your first drawing. Make them the same size and shape. The numbers should slightly overlap.

  • Draw connecting lines to corresponding points on both numbers; i.e., connect the top-right corners of both numbers and so on. Use your ruler to make the lines as straight as possible.

  • Erase any lines that would not be visible through your 3-D object.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make your initial number 1 more ornate and with a base so you have more features to demonstrate the three-dimensional effect.
  • Be sure you know which number will be the front of your drawing before you start erasing lines.
