Hey guys, it's Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw a couch on the horizon line. So basically what you're going to want to do is start off with the arms, I'm just going to draw two circles here and then I'm going to draw the cushions by just doing a couple lines that kind of go up like that and meet in the middle and the same thing kind of underneath. So right now we have our bottom cushions and the, the kind of the arms. I'm going to bring this couple lines going down for kind of the, the fabric that meets the floor here and a couple lines just kind of emphasizing, give it a little bit of form and then from the middle of the circles or actually a little up to the side I'm going to bring a line going up and across and then I'm going to bring a line going down that meets this line right here and the same thing on the other side and then I'm going to kind of round these edges here just a little bit, there we go and then a lot of times couches will have buttons on them and you can kind of make those like that doing them a little kind of like a star shape, kind of showing that they're kind of in the, going into the, into the cushion. Alright, so there we go we have our couch. Now, if we want to draw a horizon line you can just start from back here and draw a line across and a line across and now maybe this a pretty, maybe it's like kind of like an epic couch because it is on the horizon so maybe you can draw a sun setting behind it just like that and maybe some lines kind of coming out just to show that the sun is radiating, now this is not your ordinary couch of course. Alright, but there you go guys if you want to add a little bit of shadow you can do that as well and there you go guys that's how you draw a couch on the horizon line so good luck and stay creative.
