Hi, my name is Daisy, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a 3D couch. So going to start with a rectangle facing us like so. And then lines going all the way up the length of the couch to the other armrest. So I'm going to draw a modular couch, it's a little bit modern. Another line coming around and then a straight line right there. So then we need to draw the back. There's another rectangle on top. Make sure the angles are right. So that's the basic structure of the couch. We want to put cushions and some more interesting things on there. So I'm going to do two lines like so just to give me an idea of where the cushions would be. Then rough them in taking out any lines we don't need and then rounding them out. The cushions up top. It's probably going to go over our back line a little bit. I'm also going to do three cushions like so. There's a lot of erasing in this one because when you want to do something in 3D you have to put the groundwork in first. So we've got our basic shape. Now what I want to do is just give it a little bit of shading. Going to fill in the rest of this arm over here. Going to shade from that side. Shade all the way in these pillows. It really makes them look more 3D. I'm going to graduate these shade out so it doesn't look like it's all coming out here. Because we're going to have the light coming from this side that way. If you want to put a little more cushion underneath. I'm going to color that one in. A little bit of cushion sticking out. Last but not least we really want to make this 3D so you can just put a shadow coming off from the couch like so. And there we go. My name is Daisy, and that's how you draw a 3D couch.
