In this lesson drawing, I will tell you how to draw a simple cube. Drawing geometric shapes is very useful for novice artists, so I hope that it will be a great training of your skills.
You might think that drawing geometric shapes is pretty boring. However, it is really necessary for artists. Drawing cubes, cylinders and pyramids helps to quickly and efficiently create geometrically loyal contours of more complex objects.
In addition, drawing figures is a practice during which you will quickly feel your progress. To achieve the best result, I advise not to use a ruler or any other auxiliary tools.
Don’t take this lesson as something very simple. Drawing geometric shapes is a very important matter that requires maximum attention. Even if you don’t notice it, your progress will grow with each geometric shape drawn.

How to Draw a Simple Cube
- Draw the top.
Depict a parallelogram at the top of your sheet of paper. It also looks like a slightly flattened rhombus. Use light smooth lines so you can adjust them if needed.
- Draw the side part.
Add another parallelogram that is adjacent to the shape from the previous step. In fact, these are two parallel lines that are crossed by another line diagonally.
- Add an angle.
Draw just two lines to form the complete outline of the cube-like in my reference. Be sure to use the lines from the previous steps as a guide. Ideally, you should have the effect of tapering the front of the cube slightly downward.
- Color the cube.
Use any colors you like. I chose light blue. If you want to complicate your drawing, add shadows and highlights.
