Hey, what's up? Chris here, and today we're going to be learning how to draw a three dimensional balloon. Let's begin. Now the first thing we're going to do is we're going to draw the balloon which we're going to start at the top and we're going to come around and we're going to come back down to the bottom. And we're going to top that off and we're going to draw a little yellow line here, like there's some string and here comes the string. I'm going to make the string a little thicker because you're kind of looking at the balloon close up so the string itself is going to have a little more width to it. Now to give this balloon the appearance of three dimensional is we're going to do some shadowing so you can start from this end and you want to just do some lines to connect it. As it goes up closer to the top they kind of stop. Here you can have them where they're medium, not too much, just enough, just enough and as you're coming down come around in and it just dies out. Make it do the same thing over here but you can start like from here. The line starts to come around and it gives the illusion that the balloon is kind of turned by you drawing these lines this way you're giving it kind of, you're kind of looking at it like a two quarter, maybe three quarter but you're not looking at it dead on, you know what I mean? Then you can have some at the top, a little bit at the top see, like that. And that would be about it, a little more down here. And that's it, you know, some more lines. And there you have it. I'm Chris and this is how you draw a three dimensional balloon.
