Hey guys, my name is Chris, and today we're going to show you how to draw a bookcase. So basically a bookcase is pretty simple. All you're going to do is you're going to start with a line across this top here. Make it just a giant rectangle. Could be a thick bookcase, could be a thin bookcase, really however you want. But make the bottom line just a little bit thicker as it's like the base of the bookcase. Want to make sure that it's holding up here. At the top, we're going to probably do a little bit of a design like make it a little bit fancy. So you're going to do a couple just lines like that on the side. And then just do one giant wavy line so it looks like the top of the bookcase. And then maybe just do like a little design or something maybe. Something like that. Now we're going to do the shelves. Going across here like parallel line going horizontally. And now maybe we draw some books in here. First row of books, just kind of like a little rectangle with a couple lines. Maybe you want to make some books kind of like falling down. So just make them lines at an angle like that. And then continue along the side here. Maybe a couple books are just laying like laying down. And I leave a little bit of space because usually on bookshelves like these, usually there's a little bit of space between some books like we got here. If you want, you can also make the books different colors. Basically just keep going down like that. Maybe throw in some green here. Just to give the books a little bit of color. And really you can use whatever colors you want. And basically just keep going down just drawing in books, drawing whatever else you want to the shelves. You can put maybe like a globe like one of those world globes you see on a desk or something. But really just get creative and kind of do whatever you want. All right. Couple books falling down. Throw in a little green here to make sure that looks like a little globe. All right guys, well you get the point. Thank you so much and that's our bookcase for today.
