In this tutorial, we learn how to draw a cylinder. First, you will draw the sides of the cylinder and then the curves for the top and the bottom. After this, complete the circle at the top and then shade in the side with crosshatching. From here, draw some lines to shade in on the side next to the cylinder. If you want to draw a cylinder on its side, draw a box around it first and then continue to draw. Make sure all your lines are equal to each other so it evens up and looks more realistic from an outside view.
