Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw ribbons in perspective. I'm going to start with the ribbon bow. I'm just going to draw two triangles that are very rounded and then a square in the middle to give us the nice simple shape of the bow, more triangles coming out to be the bottom of the ribbon. Let's make this one a bit thicker so there we've got our basic shape of the ribbon itself and we want to put this into perspective so the way I've angled the lines like so we're going to see a lot more detail underneath and we can even make these a lot rounder on top so you can look like you're looking right next to it. So round off some of these lines. It's really easier to start square and then round it off, same with this side, we're going to see right inside the ribbon and round off the top there to match. And to really sell the perspective, we're going to shade underneath so it looks like there's depth underneath the ribbon. We'll give this a little bit more detail, these can be a little bit more flat. It doesn't need too much shading or anything like the top of the ribbon, clean up our lines a little bit and if you want to make this look like it's on a box that's where we'll get this perspective. So let's say this is the top of the box and that's going to come right down like so and this is the side. And there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw ribbons in perspective.
