How to Draw A Cube – A Step by Step Guide

The cube is a six-sided, three-dimensional shape that can be used to create anything from ice cubes to bricks to soap bars and woodblocks. If you know how to draw a cube, creating one in watercolors or graph paper can be very simple.

Step 1

How to draw a cube: Start by building up the 3D shape with some 2D squares and rectangles, using a lighter pencil for the first few steps because there will be a lot of erasing before you draw the final shape.

Step 2 – Draw in another square to build up your cube

This will give you a good idea of where to place the second square behind the first, which can be tricky to get right, which is why we’re using a pencil for now!

Step 3 – Now, we shall draw a line for your cube

Simply draw a line between the top two corners of the two squares with your ruler, and that’s all there is to it for this step; now move on to step 4: how to draw a cube with a 3D-pencil and a ruler.

Step 4 – Draw some more lines for your cube

In this step, we’ll add more lines to connect the cube’s sides; the skeleton is now complete, and we’ll concentrate on finishing the shape in the next step.

Step 5 – Now, you can erase unnecessary lines

Focus on erasing any unnecessary lines and going over the final lines in pen in this step; the reference image will help you ensure you erase the correct lines! Once you’ve erased those lines, you’ll be left with a cube, ready to color in!

Step 6 – Finish off your cube drawing with some color

What will you do with your cube drawing? When it comes to coloring it, you have a lot of options. For example, you could use some lines and shades of brown to make it look like wood, or you could make it look like a melting ice cube.

We hope this guide has shown you how to draw a cube, and now it’s up to you to decide how you want to personalize it. You can use anything from acrylic paints and watercolors to crayons and colored pencils to make your drawing stand out.

What is Cube diagram?

The cube’s skeleton (vertices and edges) form a graph with 8 vertices and 12 edges, which is a special case of the hypercube graph and one of five Platonic graphs, each of which is a skeleton of its Platonic solid.

Can you draw a cube with one continuous line?

Unfortunately, any drawing must have less than three intersections where an odd number of lines meet in order to be drawn in one continuous line. For example, consider a Venn diagram shape: each intersection has four lines meeting (2 even intersections).

What is 3 point perspective used for?

For buildings seen from above (or below), three-point perspective is commonly used; in addition to the two vanishing points previously mentioned, one for each wall, there is now a third vanishing point for how the vertical lines of the walls recede; for an object seen from above, this third vanishing point is below the ground.
