Draw Escher Cube

About: High school student, not really much else.

This is the Escher cube, and I will teach you how to draw it.

Step 1: Weird Shape

just draw whats below first.

Step 2: L 1

Add an L ,like so

Step 3: Double L

Add 2 L's, like so. the first one is upside-down, connecting to the bottom part of the first l. the second has the upper part as tall as the shape, while the bottom part is the length of the top part of the first l you did on this step.

Step 4: L 2

add another l , like the pic down below. I can't explain because it is just... there.

Step 5: 1 Double Line

attach two lines to the structure, like so.

Step 6: L 3

add yet another l, like so.

Step 7: Challenge

just look at the picture and you will know what i mean.

Step 8: Border

border around it, like so. you are done!

Step 9: Memorize

memorize it. i took me 4 hours, and i have the brain of a 10-year-old( i am serious about this).

    Love it, but I would like to know how to invent, create, this type of "puzzle" for myself. Especially Escher's tesselations.

    The Escher Cube is much different from what you've drawn here. Yes, it's got the "Weaving" of the edges that you've attempted here, but each of the edges is also three dimensional.

    The images below is from http://www.thediviningnation.com/4c.htm.

    It shows the three dimensionality of the edges, and the complete weave that you missed on the left hand edge of the front face of the cube.

    I drew it once, going along with your guide, step-by-step. I drew it once mostly on my own; had to look at step #6 to make sure I did it right. I drew it a third time, by myself. :)
