Hey guys. It's Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw a simple 3D chair. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to start off with the back of the chair here and do a line that's just kind of going horizontal. You can kind of make the back of the seat as wide as you would like. I'm just going to make it about there. And I'm going to take another line that's kind of connecting to that one, bring it at an angle going this way, and the other one is going to be going at a kind of a similar angle but a little bit more the opposite way. So you're just going to bring it out just like that. And I'm going to connect those so you have almost a weird shaped square there. Bring a couple lines going vertically at each point here. And then connect all of those. And there we have the basis for the seat of our chair. And then what we're going to do is we're going to bring up a couple of lines going up like this, connecting at these points and this is going to be the back of the chair here. You can make those as thick or as thin as you want. It's really up to you, whatever kind of chair, whatever chair you please. And then we've got another line that's going up this way and it's going to be the same exact length as the one on this side. And then for the top of the chair what I usually like to do is I usually like to do an arc but if you want to do a flat chair top, you can do that as well. Kind of do your own thing and keep it your own style. That's how I'm going to do it there. I'm going to do another line going this way. There's a hole at the top of the chair. And then you're going to do the back of the chair. Which I'm going to do as a bunch of boards here. And I'm just doing a couple of lines that are going up and down in parallel lines. And you can keep them as close or as far apart as you want. And do as many as you want. So there we've got the back of our chair and the seat started off. Now we're going to do the legs and you're going to bring a line kind of going down just a little bit of an angle on this side. And then on this side you're going to do the same thing. And you're going to keep it just the same length as that first one on the other side. You're going to do a couple of rounded edges on the bottom here. And then you're going to continue on, on both sides, following those lines parallel. And then for the back legs you're going to do kind of the same thing. Make sure you're following the same direction of line as the front. Do that, another line going like that. And depending on how, what angle you're looking at the chair, is going to determine the way the back legs sit. So you're not going to make them as long. But that looks about right there. And then on this side since you're not going to be able to see the entire leg, you're just going to match it with this, kind of eying where it comes down from that corner. And you're going to go just like that. If you want you can connect them. Just for extra support. And maybe on this side as well. There you go guys. And that is your 3 dimensional chair. Good luck to you and stay creative.
