Here's a quick example of what I mean: https://i.imgur.com/i79AvPA.png

You're on the right track with "add contour lines that are perpendicular to the cylinder's axis" - except the point is that you draw those cross-sectional slices first to lay out the structure and the way in which the form tapers, and then build the form by bridging across them. Arguably you'd get the same result one way or the other, but approaching it this way allows you to pin down the specifics of the form you want to construct more easily, which helps with more complex situations.

Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

These are my favourite sketchbooks, hands down. Move aside Moleskine, you overpriced gimmick. These sketchbooks are made by entertainment industry professionals down in Los Angeles, with concept artists in mind. They have a wide variety of sketchbooks, such as toned sketchbooks that let you work both towards light and towards dark values, as well as books where every second sheet is a semitransparent vellum.
