Like all objects found in the physical world, geometric shapes make up the basic structure of stadium bleachers. Sharp angles and rectangles can be used to create empty bleachers that you can either leave empty or fill with all sorts of imaginative spectators. For the purposes of this article, we'll cover a 3-D drawing of a set of five tiered bleachers of the sort commonly found at school football fields and baseball diamonds.


Step 1

Use the ruler to draw a 90-degree angle that points to the left in the right center of your paper. At the top of the vertical line, draw a small line that sticks out to the left, just below the top of the line. Now draw "steps" that zigzag away and down from this line. You should now have what looks like the side of the bleachers.

Step 2

Draw a horizontal line that goes across from the top of the 90-degree line, roughly 4 to 5 inches long. Draw the same zigzag steps on the other side, mimicking the "steps" you drew in the previous step.

Step 3

Use the ruler as a straight-edge guide to draw a horizontal line that connects the top angles of the steps. Erase any angles that don't match up properly and redraw the "step" to line up correctly. You should now have a 3-D set of bleachers. Retrace your drawing with black ink to make it stand out on the page.
