Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw ribbons in 3D. So a ribbon is a strip of fabric and in 3D it would be like just moving and curving around and I just make lines and I keep them parallel to each other and then come around. Like this would be a ribbon shape. You just follow the lines around each other and when you want to make it twist you bring them together and let's say this is the, this ribbon is just coming around again, just back into space and there's the end of it and you could also have a ribbon, a 3D kind of bow and I would make the bow loops like that and you make the knot like that and there you can see the 3D shape of the bow flaring out and there's the end of the ribbon. You could have it coming down like that. You could have it twisting out like that and then there's the other side of the ribbon. So, oh there's even another kind of ribbon that's like an award and that has a circle and then there would be two ribbon ends coming off and it has like a thing like that and you could have it say #1. The blue ribbon is first prize generally. So that is how I draw ribbons in 3D.
