Hey guys, it's Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw roof angles and a window. So what you're going to do is you're going to start at the top of the roof here and draw a line going down like that and the same thing on the other side so it looks like the top of a triangle and then usually the roof overhangs a little bit so you're going to want to do a line going straight down but a little bit inward, same thing on the other side and you close it off at the bottom. So that's the beginning of our house. I'm going to do another line kind of going across like that and following it back down, just with the same angle at the front. I'm going to connect these two here and then a little bit inward, I'm going to draw another line that kind of connects and I'll bring that along the side just like that. So the beginning of our house maybe you want to have it be a little bit bigger house so maybe you want to do a line just like that, another line across the top and a line going down and if you're going to do it like this just make sure you bring the line all the way to the same edge as this here and connect them. I'm going to do another line kind of going down just like that and bring it in just a little bit. A line going down, another line here, kind of connect right there just like that. And that's one way of doing a house. You can follow these angles if you want or you can keep it with just this simplified version of a house. If you want to do some windows, you can do one here and a lot of times people do windows just like that, we can just do a cross in the middle or you can do a window in this way where they have a couple different crosses or you can do a circular window or you can also do a window with a rounded top. And you can't forget the door. Maybe there's a little bit of grass too. Alright guys, and that's how you do roof angles and a window. So good luck and stay creative.
