Hi, my name is Jessica, and I'm an artist, and today we're going to draw a 3D transparent cube. So we're going to start with the front piece of our cube. Which is just a square. And all sides of the square should be the same size. Now we're going to go up to the top corners and we're going to take a line that's going to go over here. So we're going to do a line on that one, and we're going to go to this corner and do the same thing. It's going to be in the same direction and the same length. Just like that. When we get to that area here, then we're going to connect those two. Just like that. And that's the top of your cube. And then we're going to bring a line from the top down. And this line is going to copy this line here. We're going to bring it down. Not quite all the way. It's going to be about as long as this line, but since these two connect, it doesn't look like it's as long. Finally we're going to go back into the box to the back corner here and draw a line down until you're about halfway down your starting line. Then we're going to take the line from the front corner and connect it just like that. And then we'll take these two and connect them there. Then you've got a 3D cube. Another way you could do it is you can draw a square, and then you go to the about halfway into the square, you draw another square. Just like that. And then you just connect all your lines. So that's a really easy way to do it too. Let's see that again. It's so easy. Do a square, and another square, and then you connect those lines. Just like that. And that is how you draw a 3D transparent cube.
