Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an Artist and I'm going to show you how to draw tangled barb wire. So, this is going to be really simple but a lot of lines. So, you're going to draw the main barb wire shape, just spirals all the way around. So, that's like what you can see at the top of the fence; but, this is going to be tangled. So, what actually I want to do is draw some more squiggles all the way around. So, that's a lot of tangled in there. Now, it just looks like a lot of lines; so, what we want to do is go in and actually draw the barb wire bits, like so. The way I draw them is a big squiggly bloc, looks like twisted wire with four-bits of wire coming out. Really simple and just space them around the wire. Don't forget to put them on in the extra squiggly bit to make it look it's all tangled up. And just keep following along. If you want, you can use different colors or you can shade it in, make it black, brown, a little bit rusty or you can use do yours silver if it's going to be new wire. So, I'm just going to keep going until I get to the end of all my squiggles and I'm happy with the amount of tangleness. And there we go, my name is Daisy and that's how you draw tangled barb wire.
