Hi, my name is Erik, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a realistic jar step-by-step. O.k., start out with an oval or an ellipse on top. That's going to be the top of your jar's lid, bring some lines down to add some dimension to it. And it's across and over and then, this jar is going to come down and then, curve a little bit, so it's lining up with that. Bring it down, curve it out a little bit. And then, bring this down, put a straight line there, straight line here. And then, matching the curvature of the bottom of the lid, draw that curve going around, as best you can, there you go. And then, this jar is going to be empty, so you're going to be able to see the inside of it. But since you're looking through glass, it's going to be tapered off a little bit, curve this side down to show the emptiness of the jar, bring this down. And there you go, you can add a little thickness to the base of this, here. And that is a step-by-step on how to draw a realistic jar.
