Hey, what's up? Chris here. And today, we're going to be learning how to draw three-dimensional prisms and pyramids. Let's begin. Now, I'm going to show you with two different types of markers: Thin edge, and a thick edge. First, the thin edge. Now, you have a basic pyramid, right? So, you got a line down on either side, and a line closing it. It's a triangle, it's a pyramid. What will make it three-dimensional is by you taking another line from the very top, coming down a little off, stopping there, then drawing a line going up connecting that end. Now, you can see more than one side. So, once again, you're going to draw a line down, another line down, and another line this way. Then, how you would connect it is you would go from here to here at this angle, and here straight across. See? And, you draw a little door, so that way someone can get in. And also, you can do it this way, one line here, then a line towards the center, a line towards the center. You can bring that down, and bring that down, and you have that. And, with a thick mark, you could take the thick marker, you can do the same thing. Line down, line down, across, and a line that way. That way, that's two sides. You can even shade it in if you like, to give the depth to it, know what I mean? And, there you have it. I'm Chris, and this is how you draw three-dimensional prisms and pyramids.
