Last week I went over how to draw and apply the perfect square. This week’s tutorial goes one step further with the fundamentals of cubic form.

Some tips to remember about planes:
As you become more proficient you will be able to envision a cube before drawing it.
Using Comic Draw app to draw cubes & planes
The Comic Draw app has excellent tools that makes drawing planes and cubes simple. I recommend taking advantage of these as much as possible to save time and quickly get your ideas out.
Mastering how to draw the cube has been an invaluable skill that can not be emphasized enough for any aspiring and professional artist. It is my sincere hope that this tutorial has helped make this skill easier to gain and master. Thank you for reading. Please comment & share!
