Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a diamond with shading. So, let's draw the diamond first. So, you're going to draw the top, which is a diamond shape. And then, draw triangle coming down, so it's a 3D diamond. So, that's our diamond. Now, we've got shading that we want to put in. So, we got to figure out which side the light's coming from. So, if the light's going to come from here, we're going to shade this side. Now, if you keep these shapes really simple, you can just shade in the lines. And then, I just graduate the shading around, like so. If you want to put shinier bits, I just fill these in with a lighter color. And, if you want to make it look like it's casting a shadow, say here's the ground, you just want to draw a similar shape, and color that in. And, there we go. My name is Daisy, and that's how you draw a diamond with shading.
