# How to Draw a 3D Pyramid

## In this tutorial, I want to show you how to draw a 3d pyramid. This guide is simple and is specially designed for beginner artists.

I bring to your attention a new lesson that will be very useful for you, and now you will learn how to draw a 3d pyramid step by step. The lesson includes only four steps, and it will be a great exercise for your creativity.

Drawing simple geometric shapes promotes the development of spatial imagination, and this quality will definitely come in handy in the future when you want to draw more complex objects. All artists at the beginning of their career learn to draw simple geometric shapes, such as a cube, a ball, a cylinder, or a pyramid.

The pyramid is a polyhedron in which one face is a polygon, and the other faces are triangles that have one common vertex. In this tutorial, you only see two faces. For coloring, you should use two different shades so that one side is light, and the other is dark. Thus, you can show the volume of this geometric figure and make it more realistic.

How to Draw a 3D Pyramid

1. Draw one edge of the pyramid.

Depict one straight vertical line that is slightly slanted.

On the sides, add two even, straight lines that converge at one vertex.

3. Depict the base of the pyramid.

At the bottom, draw straight connecting lines between the edges of the pyramid.

4. Color the 3D pyramid.

Use two shades of blue or light gray.
