Step 1: Draw a horizontal rectangle Draw a horizontal rectangle to represent the sofa base. Step 2: Add a second horizontal rectangle Add a second horizontal rectangle of the same size above the first, but slant the short lines slightly inward. Top it with a third rectangle, with the short lines slanted slightly outward for back cushions. Tip Use a ruler to draw straight lines. Step 3: Draw tall, thin rectangles Draw tall, thin rectangles adjacent to each side of the sofa base to represent its arms. Step 4: Connect Connect the arms' top outer points to the large upper rectangle with straight lines, repeating the inward angle of the middle rectangle to show perspective. Step 5: Indicate cushions Indicate cushions by drawing straight vertical lines to divide the sofa back and seat into two or three sections. Then draw a horizontal line slightly below the seat cushions and stretch it across the length of the original rectangle. Step 6: Soften and define the shape Soften and define the shape of the sofa's back, adding small half-circles on top of the tall rectangles to detail the arms. Step 7: Add details Add details such as cushion buttons, legs, pillows or fabric patterns. Tip Add period details to the basic shapes to draw historic pieces. Step 8: Erase and shade Erase unwanted lines. Then shade the sofa's shadowed areas to create a comfortable and cozy looking spot to stretch out and let the cares of the world slip away. Did You Know?
