Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a 3D mansion. So we're going to start by blocking out the three dimensional shapes. I'm going to start with just a very simple rectangle that goes off like so. So it's kind of like a 3D box. We're not really going to see the top of the roof so this line is a little bit more straight than as if we see the bottom corner. So that's going to be the foundation for our mansion. Let's draw our horizon line. It makes it easy to draw three dimensional shapes. So I'm going to put some really big columns on the side kind of like tarots so they'll be 3D cylinders. So a straight line and a rounded line at the bottom and a rounded line like so, same with this one, straight lines right on the corner and a round line at the bottom to create the cylinder. One last corner we see, so I'm going to put another big tarot on this corner. So then we're going to do a little bit more detail and then finish with the roof, following the lines angle from the bottom. We're going to put in some big windows and just squares, a big door and some more windows. These ones can be obscured a little bit by this tarot, more windows on top because a mansion has a lot of windows and these are just rectangles in perspective. It's always good to draw with a ruler as well so you can get the perspective right if you are really wanting to make it look really good 3D. So we're going to finish with the roof on top of our tarots, a couple little triangles and then the roof itself is going to be kind of like a trapezoid but it's going to be 3D so this one comes out with a triangle at the end. Get rid of any working lines we don't need anymore or anything that will be behind anything else. We want to fill in some windows on the tarots, just make them rounded so it looks like they're going around the shape. And then if you want to shade anything in to make it look really 3D, shade in the side and shade from the house. And there you go. My name is Daisy and that' show you draw a 3D mansion.
