Hi. My name's Erik. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to an image in 3D. In this instance I'm going to draw a chair.. So, let's start out with just the seat or the base, which is going to be, it's going to be square shape but it's going to be three dimensional. So, I'm going to draw it as such and I'm going to add dimensions to it here. Bring that down, that's a straight line across, and a straight line across here. OK. Then I'm going to ass the legs to it, which are going to be long cylinders, one, bring that down, do another one here, bring this down, bring this one over here, and then one more here. And notice that the legs need to match the level that they're on here, for the front ones here and this one here. OK. Then I'm going to add the back of the chair, which is going to be one large arch. Bring that down, connect through there, bring this up and over. And this is going to follow the back of the chair. And then I'm going to add the lines for the segments there, or the support for the back of the chair. There we go and then one more here, bring it back down to the base. All right. Just add some support lines there, and just a base line to show where it is on the plane. And that is how you draw an image in 3D.
