I'm Parker Pierce, and this is how to draw 3-D art in MS Paint. If you'd like to practice two-point perspective, but you don't have a sketch book, Photoshop, or a drawing tablet, this video's for you. Open MS Paint. Click on the line tool. The line tool in the newer versions of MS Paint allow you to select corners and readjust the direction until you click away. Make a horizon line. We will be using this for two vanishing points. A light gray is a good choice to start with, instead of black. From the two corners, drag out lines, meeting in the center, to make a box base for a cube. The rest of the lines for height will be vertical. When you're done, color in the gray lines with the paint bucket tool to return them to the background tool. This is how we'll get rid of the construction. When your cube is finished, you can select various grays to fill in the sides. Be aware of directional lighting. On the darkest side, you can cast out a shadow. It will be following the same angle direction as the corners of the cube. When those finish, you can place a highlight on it, and you're done. Thanks for watching.
