Hi, my name is Daisy, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a twisted ribbon. So going to do this in a few stages so it looks really 3D. Going to draw a curved line like so, and then this line comes like this, so this one attaches. And this line can just keep going, then underneath here, another twist. And like all the way until you're really finished. So I'm going to draw the top of the ribbon up here so we can see the whole thing. So looks a little bit abstract right now. So we need to use shading to make sense of it. So you're going to shade underneath all the little twists. So it looks like it's a different side of the ribbon. You can do this by coloring the whole thing in as well if you want different colors on each side, but lets make this one the same color so I can show you some shading. If you want to get crazy, this side can flip up and you can also shade on the other side of the ribbon. And the same down here. Just shade underneath. And just make the shading get less and less. You can flick out your wrist to get a natural gradient. Same up here. And there we go. My name is Daisy, and that's how you draw a twisted ribbon.
