Hi, my name is Patricia, I'm an artist. And I'm going to show you how to draw a realistic chair. So first we'll do a chair from the side.There's the back of the chair. Notice how it's just you know a rectangle. But as this side is closer to us so the line's a little bit longer for perspective purposes. And notice how my lines are. I've got two parallel lines but the one closest to us is a little bit longer. And then putting some rectangles in here for the side of the chair. And then the legs. And remember when you put a chair together it has four legs. And here I did this straight line at the bottom but it's actually a little bit curved. Because the bottom is usually round or it might be squared. If it is square you could do two straight lines. And then here this back leg is going to be a little bit shorter. And then again behind here you have a fourth leg also shorter. And then you can put bars in between the back legs cause they connect the legs together for more, so that it's a stronger chair, for more strength. So the chair lasts a long time. And then here you know you can put a cushion on the chair if you'd like. But basically when you are drawing chairs most of them are all angles. Put some stripes here or you know what lets just keep the cushion aspect in it. Alright so there is a realistic chair. Now if you are doing it straight, if you are looking straight at the chair it's going to be more something like this. Again the front of the chair the line is going to be a little bit longer cause it's closer to you. And the legs that are closer to you are going to be longer. And that's how to show the perspective. And this is a line to connect the legs. And here you can do just spindles on the chair. And so there you go. There are two realistic chairs. Enjoy.
