Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a 3D letter B with a shadow effect. So I'm going to start with the letter B, I'm going to draw a block letter and I do that by going like this. It's like you're drawing a letter B but you're just drawing the outside of it and you're drawing it thicker so there's the thickness of it and there it is, so the lower loop is a little bit bigger usually than the top one so you want to get that letter B in there and then to represent the 3D, the 3D effect you project it, the whole thing back with a line there, see how I'm doing it all at the same angle so it's as if it's made out of wood or something and it's going back and you can sort of fill that in, you can put a line there cause it would be like that and I'm going to fill that in just to give it some dimension and I'm going to shade it a little bit cause it is 3D, especially with 3D, so you're just going to put, put that with lines just use lines to get that and to really drive home the 3D effect you can even put a shadow which would be reaching back like that sort of at an angle. I'm just coloring that in, you don't have to put the shadow, but you can and that's how I draw a 3D letter B with a shadow effect.
