Drawing a box or a cube

This is a simple thing to do. You have drawn such shapes in maths.

Use the rectamgle tool to draw a square. The add lines to make the outline below (or use mine!)

You need to use a gradient fill going from black to the colour you desire (see spheres for how to do that ) to get the lighting effects below. You need to experiment to see what position of the colour range cursors give the best effect.

Can you see that how you gradient fill affects whether you see the shape as a solid cube or as a box?

There are more box/cube samples on the copyright free page.
