Hi guys. Chris here, and today I'm going to show you how to draw octagon floor tiles. So what we're going to do is you're going to start off with the horizon lines. Just kind of going just like that. And then you're going to draw some vertical lines but when something is coming towards you it gets a little bigger, when it goes away it's a little bit smaller. So we're going to just kind of spread these out as they go along. Just at the end. Just kind of like this. It's almost like a giant fan. So we have this basic outline. And then what we're going to do is we're going to draw some lines going this way for the tiles. Actually, don't ever be afraid to erase guys. If you've got to erase something, if you either make a mistake or you want to change something just don't ever be afraid to do that. It's a very important part of the process. And we're just going to go along creating the tiles. And doing the same thing along the bottom here. In order to make octagon tiles a lot of times the easiest way to do that is just to draw some diamond shapes at each connecting corner. So that when you're doing this it looks like a tiled floor. But when you get the final shape it's going to be an octagon because you have the sides going in and the corners and then you have extra sides here. And you're going to just basically do that all the way along, all the way along the side. And do it at every intersecting point. And you can make these any colors you want. If you want to throw in shading too after you're done you can do that as well. A lot of different colors to choose from. A lot of different types of tiles out there. And just complete it like this. Maybe if you want, maybe there can be a picture hanging up here. Or a door. And that's the inside of a house. So there you go guys. That's your octagon tiles for you. Good luck and enjoy.
