Then, draw the edges of the bottom stack. This should be fairly easy due to drawing the top stack first.

Description: Hey guys and welcome to another installment to the largest drawing tutorial community! I've done plenty of tutorials on just basic objects seen in everyday life. There's one object I never really came across that would be a great helpful tutorial. Let me give you a “hint”. The object you'll be learning to draw is shiny, honey/yellow in color, irresistible to have, and the most common ingredient used in jewelry today. If you guessed Gold then you're right! You'll be learning ”how to draw gold”. To be a bit precise, this tutorial to ”draw gold” features stacked gold bars. I really couldn't resist drawing/coloring something oh so shiny! For some of you who know me well, gold is something I really want to grasp in my bare hands. If you find that the coloring is too shiny for you to handle, dim the shine down with your coloring and see how you like it. I would suggest using acrylics to deeply emphasize the shine on the type of gold your creating. I'm not pro at painting, but I know lots of artists back in the days used acrylics and their art looks pretty dang exciting! Anywho, the drawing was very simple to complete. The coloring the best part of the drawing along with the background. I used a gradient of red and orange hues to make the gold truly stand out. I hope you'll enjoy this tutorial so thanks for viewing! Don't forget to leave feedback and a rating!
