In this video tutorial, the team at will teach you what to draw a Cylinder. Every complicated object can be drawn in a geometric form.


In order to draw, you must first master the art of drawing simple shapes. When you know how to draw cylinders you will be able to draw cylindrical objects like legs and arms.

It is important to note that there are a few issues when drawing Cylinders. In particular, there are many who have to contend with the fact that the cylinder appears as uneven, and asymmetrical and the bottom and top edges are not natural looking.

Following the steps from the artists of and advancing through the various stages of this article and you will learn to draw a perfect and stunning cylinder. So, look down below and begin the process of creating.


Step 1

Drawing a cylinder can be very like drawing a cone. Similar to the cone illustration first, draw the vertical centerline. In the lower and upper parts draw two horizontal lines which will traverse the lower and upper bases of the geometric diagram.



Step 2

Join these lines to the sides by using two vertical lines, which turn into the side faces that make up the sides of the cylinder. The upper and lower ends of each vertical line mark the near and far edges of the bottom and top bases by using a couple of easy strokes.


Step 3

Then, using the strokes created in the previous step be sure to sketch the top and bottom sides of the cylinder. Keep in mind that according to the linear perspective laws the top surface is flatter over the other side. It is vital to be aware that we’re drawing an object that is volumetric. It is essential to draw the cylinder using an understanding of its three-dimensionality in space so that the final result appears most natural.


Step 4

Remove the extra lines of construction and work to make the drawing a more clean and complete appearance. If you think that the drawing of the cylinder isn’t like it is symmetrical and you’re not sure what’s happening, take a look in the mirror and all imperfections will be apparent.


Step 5

In order to accurately portray the shadows Also, it is important to remember that we’re drawing a volumetric circle on the plane. Keep this in mind as you be sure to begin shading the darkest areas adhering to the principles of shadow and light (be sure to read this article as it will help you comprehend the fundamentals of drawing shadows in a more thorough manner). Don’t forget to draw the outline of the shadow that you cast.


Step 6

Keep adding shadows, increasing their thickness and making them darker. Don’t forget that for your object to appear the most impressive and voluminous, you must draw shadows that take into consideration the shape and size of this geometric shape. Alongside the shadows that the cylinder has draw shadows on the surface that the cylinder is placed on to eliminate the illusion of being suspended on the ceiling.


If you have done exactly as described in the instruction for drawing the cylinder drawn by the creators of Your work should look like what you will see below these terms. If you did make an error, return to the point in which you made the mistake and rectify it.


Let the team at remind you that to be an accomplished artist you must draw as frequently as possible. While it is not required to paint from dawn to dusk it’s enough to dedicate at minimum an hour or half an hour to the art of drawing. If you adhere to this principle and you do this, sooner or later you’ll improve your drawing abilities to a new level.
