Hey Everybody,
Happy Halloween!

Well, it's been awhile since I've made a instructable.
I seen the Autodesk Sketchbook Pro contest and thought I would enter my Halloween drawing.
I did WIN my version 5 of Autodesk Sketchbook Pro on Instructables.

I've been drawing 3D drawings for awhile now.

I do have a instructable on 3D chalk drawings too.
I did that instructable in 2009.

Much of what we are doing here is the same as my "How to do 3D Anamorphic Artwork and Sidewalk, Street, and Driveway Art" instructable.
You might want to take a look at that instructable first, so you get the basic idea.
It is basically the same technique.
But, instead of chalk we are using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 6.
Here is where it is located:
How to do 3D Anamorphic Artwork and Sidewalk, Street, and Driveway Art

I am not going to get in heavy detail on my drawing techniques/style, as I believe everyone has there own style of drawing.
I mostly want to get, how I got the 3D effect.
That way, everyone can do a 3D drawing in their own style on Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 6.
In this instructable you should have some knowledge of Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 6 and Coreldraw X3.

I do all my drawings with my Wacom Intuos 3.
(see picture above)
This is a lengthy instructable, but well worth the effort!

There is a demo of Autodesk Sketchbook Pro located here:

Ok, let's get onto the instructable!

Step 1: Gathering The Artwork

Ok, let's get started..

The first thing I like to do, is figure out what would make a good 3D drawing, when the paper is folded 90 degrees.
The best thing, I found out is, when the paper is folded, make the 90 degree fold the back wall.
It makes for the best 3D drawings.
For the 3D effect, anyways.
Adding the shadow, really adds to the realism.

For the Halloween contest, I thought a witches broom and hat.
What more than a wall with the witches cape and and on strike sign.
So, I searched google for some design ideas.
I found a broom, hat, coat and the strike sign.
I figure I can just freehand the rest of the drawing.

Once we figure what we want, lets move on to the next step.

<p>What <br>an amazing drawing. You have such an innovative idea, and one should get <br>inspired from your brilliant thought. Thanks for sharing this.</p>
im having trouble with the part where you slice them in two then put them on the paper like that is there anyway i can do this without coreldraw <br>
I think you could do it in gimp.
Thanks for a great instructable. You are so talented.
Your mighty welcome!<br>Thanks for the kind comment.<br>Hope you give me 5 stars!
Congratulations. This is awesome and so creative
Thanks for the kind comments!
Great job! I love the effect and your Instructable is well explained.
Awesome thanks for posting this. I learned a lot.
That is so cool! I love the one with your hand signing your name on the birthday card.
Awesome! I love that you showed different perspectives of the finished drawing so we can really see what you've done :)
