# How to Draw a Box

If you often visit Drawingforall.net, you probably already know for sure that we set out to create drawing lessons on absolutely everything in this world.
So we were just obliged to create a tutorial about how to draw a box. In fact, in one of the previous drawing lessons we were already drawing a box, but it was a cardboard box, and today we will draw a wooden box.

## Step 1

So, first of all draw out the outlines of the box (that looks like a cube) with the help of straight, clear and dark lines. You can use a ruler, but if you want to learn how to draw straight lines as a professional artist, we advise you not to use it.

## Step 2

Draw out the lines on each of the faces of the cube as shown in our example. Try to observe proportionality and evenness when drawing these lines. You should keep all the lines approximately the same distance from the edges.

## Step 3

Make the box drawing more voluminous as in our example. By the way, a lesson about drawing a box will be very useful for those who want to learn how to draw everything related to games, because in games we can often find all sorts of boxes and barrels.

## Step 4

Now with the help of straight lines draw the boards on each of the surfaces of the box. Try to maintain the correct distance between the boards so that they do not look uneven and disproportionate. Again, you can draw all the lines using a ruler, but to improve your skills, try to manage without a ruler.

## Step 5

Using curved and uneven lines, draw the texture of the wood. Add shadows using hatching. The lines of the tree pattern should not be exactly the same. But the lines of the hatching on the contrary, should be clear, smooth and the same.

Today we showed you how to draw a box step by step. You can draw this box either separately or as part of some other picture.
