Hi, my name is Patricia. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a 3D B as in the letter B. So first and foremost we will draw the B. Now I'm not going to touch lines or normally if you drew a B, you'd do this but we're going to make it three dimensional. So I'm drawing the outline of it and then I'm going to put two semicircles with straight lines in it to get the center openings and then we want to do the dimension and I'm going to do it in a different color so you can really see. Here we're going to add a side to the B. The line is up and a little to the left of the first line and then again we're going to do another line here and then where it hits the B right there, and then because we can see these sides, we're going to be able to see this. And then again here because of the angle, we can't see above here and I'm going to shade this in so that you can really see the dimension. Notice how my lines are parallel to the top and bottom line. They're going a little bit diagonally. When you do this with the line, it gives you the feel of shape and form. And here is your three dimensional B. Enjoy.
