Letters are an essential part of many artworks, and drawing is no exception. What better way to make the letters in your drawing more creative by adding dimensions?
With 3D letters, anything you write in your drawing will look ten times more aesthetically pleasing!
Fortunately, we have created a step-by-step tutorial on how to draw 3D letters, summarized in 9 quick and easy steps.
What’s more, each instruction comes with an illustration, making the whole process a lot easier for you to follow.
In this guide, we will be drawing a three-dimensional letter A. So, go ahead and prepare a piece of paper and a pencil and let’s start drawing. Don’t forget to grab your favorite coloring materials too!
Have fun and use your artistic skills!

How to Draw 3D Letters – Let’s get started!
Start by drawing a triangular shape. This figure outlines the middle of the letter A.
Keep in mind that the triangle figure should not be in the very middle, rather it should be slightly on the right side of the center. This ensures that there’s sufficient space for the dimensions of the letter.
Remember, the size of your 3D letter depends on the size of the triangle. The bigger the triangle shape is, the bigger the letter A will be.
The 3D letter primarily consists of straight lines. So, you may need to use a ruler to help you draw straight lines quickly and easily.
Step 2 — Create the Top Part of the Letter A
Draw a horizontal line above the triangle that we drew previously. This outlines the topmost part of the letter A.
Bear in mind that there should be a gap between the horizontal line and the triangle figure.
Step 3 — Draw the Letter A’s Left Diagonal Line
Starting from the left endpoint of the horizontal line, draw a downward diagonal line heading further to the left.
This forms the edge of the letter A on the left side.
Step 4 — Complete the Left Side of the Letter A
Draw a short horizontal line heading to the right beginning from the bottom endpoint of the diagonal line that we drew previously.
Afterwards, draw a short upward diagonal line slightly tilted to the right side.
After finishing this step, half of the letter A should not be complete, as shown in the illustration above.
Step 5 — Next, Draw the Bottom Middle Line
From the top endpoint of the most recent line we drew, draw a horizontal line. This creates the middle line at the bottom of the letter A. This is also the line that connects letter A’s both “legs”.
Afterwards, draw a downward diagonal line slightly tilted towards the right beginning from the right endpoint of the horizontal line we drew just now.
Step 6 — Then, Draw the Right Side Bottom Line
Draw a horizontal line from the bottom endpoint of the diagonal line we drew previously. This forms the bottom line of the right leg of the letter A.
Keep in mind that this line should have a similar length to the line on the opposite side, which we drew previously in the fourth step.
Step 7 — Finalize the Structure of the Letter A
Complete the form of the letter A by drawing a diagonal line, connecting both endpoints of the horizontal line at the top and at the bottom.
At this point, the letter A should now be fully formed. And as you can see in the illustration, the letter A is off-center and situated slightly on the right side.
Don’t worry about this! This leaves enough space for the dimensions of the letter A.
Step 8 — Draw the Dimensions of the Letter A
After completing the structure of the letter A, we will now be working on the dimensions in this step.
Proceed by drawing downward diagonal lines at the topmost part and both bottom parts of the letter.
Keep in mind that all diagonal lines should be leaning towards the left side, as shown in the illustration above.
Step 9 — Make the Letter A Three-Dimensional
Finalize the dimensions by closing off the figures. Continue by drawing a diagonal line closing off the dimensions on the left side of the letter A.
Afterwards, draw vertical lines to fill in the blank spaces at the bottom of the letter.
At this point, the dimensions of the letter A is finished. Thus, your three-dimensional letter A is now complete.
Now that we’ve successfully drawn a three-dimensional letter A, it’s finally time for the most exciting part. In this final step, we’ll be choosing the colors and coloring our drawing.
This step is optional but we recommend doing so to make your artwork colorful.
The colors you will be using for your drawing is entirely up to you. Feel free to use any colors you like! You can even use more than one color to make the 3D letter multi-colored!
