How to Draw Pyramids
- Draw the triangle shape.
The triangle should turn out to be slightly tilted, so you need to first sketch out the bottom horizontal line, the right edge of which is slightly raised. After that, draw the left part and notice that it is slightly shorter than the second, that is, its slope is less. After that, draw a right segment by connecting the first two.
- Second triangle.
Similar to the first step, draw a second triangle right after the first, as shown in the sample.
- Lateral line.
Draw the side face of the second pyramid, which creates the volumetric shape of the pyramid.
- Add the line.
Similar to the previous step, draw a line at the first pyramid. Try to draw this line so that it is parallel to the right pyramid.
- The last line.
Now draw a line for the bottom edge of the pyramid.
- Color the drawing.
Color the drawing using your coloring supplies. Paint the front parts of the pyramids in a darker color, and the left parts in a lighter color. These details will add a more three-dimensional look to the drawing.
