Hi, my name is Patricia. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw falling ribbon. Now when you draw falling ribbon have fun with it. You can do a nice curly line and you know your ribbon might have two points like this and it's going to be moving, so let's see here notice how I'm drawing my lines, I'm having, oops, we'll erase this. We have two lines parallel to each other and they're moving. Remember with the ribbon it's very flowy and moving so you really want to have that movement in there and you can portray that with the curvy lines and so you have it together but then as the ribbon twists and turns, the lines come together and then they go apart again and then here it doesn't become invisible but the one line goes over the other and so again, you know, just make it fun but when you have that falling ribbon, you're going to have, let's see, let me get to the point. You can also do a simpler one like this. Notice how the two lines are parallel and I didn't overlap any of them, but let's say I did want to overlap, just go like this, bring those two lines together and you overlap it and you can even make it thinner, can you see that? Here let's get another pen, here's the pink, here we go, there we go. So see that and then again you have the overlapping or if you want to keep it simple just keep the lines parallel but keep the movement in there and there's your falling ribbon. Enjoy.
