How to draw a 3D triangle (+ coloring)

3D drawings are very popular now. People admire hand-drawn realistic images that seem to be able to come to life at any moment.

It only seem that to create an image in three-dimensional space is difficult. We offer you to learn the fundamentals of 3D art with the help of our step by step instruction.

You need:
1

Basis

Draw a square of a medium size. You can make your basis bigger if you want that your drawing will be bigger.

2

Contours

Draw a triangle inside the square in a flat dimension. The lower side is a part of the square.

3

Extra figure

Erase the square carefully because we don’t need it any more.

Corners

Draw a small rectangle in the figure’s upper corner to make it overlap the corner. Pay attention, its width is equal to the width of the triangle at the top.

Corners

Erase the rectangle at the top, cutting the corner. Draw such figures at the bottom. They must be slightly inverted.

Lines

Add the same line from the front side of the left corner.

All must be connected with the help of the last line, which starts from the first horizontal one.

Coloring

You must color 3D triangle in a proper way to make it look realistic. You can use one color as it’s shown in the picture, but make the inner details look more darker.

Coloring

You can also color the 3D figure online.
