Hi. My name's Jessica and I'm an artist. And today we're going to draw 3D letters overlapping. So, we're going to do the word, fun because nothing is more fun than drawing. So, we've got our big 3D F, right. And we're going to make it 3D by adding some dimension to it, bringing the lines in and connecting it. OK. That looks pretty 3D. You can further illustrate that it's 3D by coloring in the pieces that you just added. See that, whoa. Now, when we make our next letter which is going to be U, we're not going to start with the U, we're going to start with the line that creates the U. So, we're going to bring it down a little bit. And then we're going to connect it around like that so it's overlapping. And on the same side in the same direction, we're going to show the 3D areas. So, this U is going to come up and go back like that. Just like the F did. Come up at an angle and go back. And then we're going to do down the inside of the U, like that. Now all the way up, just on the inside to show that the U is also 3D. Next we're going to move on to our N. And the N is going to be even behind the U. So, we're going to start with the top of the N because it's behind the, the U is blocking the N. And we're going to bring our letter down like that. First we're going to make our N, do our outline, right. And they're all kind of overlapping, they're all on top of each other. And the same thing with the N. To make it 3D we're going to take those edges bring them back and connect them, like so all the way around. And then on the inside here, we're going to bring it up and back, like so. Same on with this one. And I think I pretty much have just illustrated 3D letters overlapping for you . I don't know, if you want to go in you can add a little bit of color or shapes around the outside, make some dots. you know, if these letters are fun and 3D, you want them to be fun, right. But of course that part is up to you as always. You are the artist and you get to make those creative decisions. So, use your imagination and have fun.
