How to Doodle a Campfire

Step 1

drawing a campfire

To doodle a campfire, begin by drawing an elongated rectangle in the middle of your page. This rectangle will represent one piece of wood that is part of our campfire.

Step 2

To draw the second piece of wood, doodle another elongated rectangle. Notice how this second rectangle is partially hidden behind the first rectangle. You are, therefore, essentially drawing two rectangles that cross behind the original rectangle you drew in step 1.

Step 3

doodling a campfire

To doodle the flame of our fire use long arc shapes. Notice how there are two pointy ends on the fire. One is a little higher and the left side is a little lower. This can be tricky to draw. You might want to practice a little.

Step 4

Let’s now mirror our larger flame with a smaller flame in the middle. Use exactly the same doodling technique to draw this smaller flame. Notice how the angles of the smaller flame mirror the larger flame.

Finish things off by giving your campfire doodle some needed color. You can, if you wish, add more wood or even add some lines to show smoke coming from the fire. Feel free to add these details to spice up your doodle a little. 🙂
