A soda bottle, sometimes called a pop bottle, is a simple subject suitable for beginning artists to practice still-life drawing, perspective and dimensional drawing techniques. With a little practice, beginning artists can use a soda bottle as the foundation for learning to draw more complex still-life subjects.
- Skill level:
Draw the basic shape. Start at what will be the bottom of your soda bottle. Draw a line toward the top of the paper. The line can be straight or you can add a slight inward curve, depending upon how you want to shape your bottle.
Round this line off, then begin another line that will run vertically, extending from the rounded end of this line. This will be the neck of the bottle. Draw a very short curved line horizontally that will form the top opening of the bottle, then draw a second vertical line for the other side of the neck.
Draw a curved line extending from the base of the bottle neck and bring it down to the bottom of your paper. This forms your entire soda bottle. Connect the two outer lines at the bottom by drawing a curved line (curve should be toward you for to create the illusion of a rounded bottom on the bottle).
Draw two horizontal lines in the centre of the bottle, spaced enough to give you room to create a label. You can write the name of a soda brand on this label, make up your own, or simply draw squiggly lines to create the impression of writing without using specific words.
