How to draw multiple cylinders in perspective |Part B

We saw in the Part A how to solve a common mistake about drawing “dual ellipses” – showing the top surface of camera lens for example.

Today, let’s draw multiple cylinders on the same scene, like the Buren’s column in Paris.

Let’s draw multiple columns in perspective – inspired from the Buren’s column in Paris.

Start with the ground plane adding converging lines.

Add the ellipses with the minor axis as well.

How to draw multiple cylinders- design sketching Part B f

Extrude the ellipse to the top following the minor axis as a guide.

Repeat the operation with the smaller ellipse inside – to get a tube.

Add contour lines. Make sure they follow the converging lines on the ground.

Add curves at the bottom of the cylinder to add extra details.

How to draw multiple cylinders- design sketching Part B j

Repeat the operation for each of the 4 contour lines.

Add unifinished lines as well.

Time to add more cylinders. To do so, expand your ground adding converging lines.

How to draw multiple cylinders- design sketching Part B n

How about drawing a “negative column” going down.

How to draw multiple cylinders- design sketching Part B o

Double check your cylinders. All the minor axis go to the same direction. All the cylinders are symmetrical.

Time for practicing with rough lines! It will help you memorize the process and the forms.

If the sketching methods I’ve acquired aid me in my life and in my career, I believe that they can also help you to learn, and help you with your projects. Whether Design is a job or a hobby it doesn’t matter, so long as you do what is important to you.
