Hey, what's up? Chris here, and today we're going to be learning how to draw and sketch a building. Now, I'm going to show you two different ways you could do it. First way, we're going to do the basic, facing forward building, which is one line across, put it there, one straight line down, and another straight line down. And draw a little tiny box up here. That would be the ventilation or chimney, so to speak, ventilation and with smoke trailing up. And now, what you want to do is, we're going to do some windows. So, we'll do a line here, little lines across, as well down, you know. And then we'll do the same thing up under. And we'll close them off. And these are the windows. Now, for the next building, we're going to do it more three dimensional. So, we're going to draw a line across, same thing on that side,one coming down to meet it. And the other like that. Then we'll bring this line straight down, bring this line straight down and we'll bring this line straight down. Then the same thing, except we'll just do lines across and down, and so forth. So, it's the same thing. It's a big giant skyscraper, so there's lots of windows. And then the same thing, you draw those lines at an angle. The reason why I'm drawing then this way is to give the effect you're seeing more than one side of the building as opposed to looking straight on at it. And the same thing, just add the lines. And these will be the windows and so forth. There you have it. I'm Chris and this is how you draw and sketch buildings.
