How to Doodle a Checklist



Step 1

To doodle your clipboard checklist, begin by drawing the clipboard holder section first. Use curved lines and a circle for this purpose. Also, try and keep the left and right side symmetrical. We are doodling the clipboard holder first because it overlaps other parts of our checklist.


Step 2

The next layer of our checklist that we need to draw is our paper. Draw an upright rectangle to represent your paper. Notice how the top portion of our rectangle is under the clipboard holder.


Step 3

To doodle your clipboard, use another upright rectangular shape on the outside of the small rectangular shape you drew within Step 2. Notice also how part of this shape is hidden behind the clipboard holder. You can also add a 3-dimensional aspect to the bottom part of your clipboard using straight lines. Notice how the short outer lines and angled inwards.


Step 4

It’s time now to doodle our checklist. Use rectangles, ticks, and squiggly lines for this purpose. Notice the spacing between each item of our checklist. You can, of course, use your creativity here. This clipboard doesn’t necessarily have to be a checklist. It can be a picture, a game strategy board, or anything else that comes to mind. 🙂


Step 5

Add the final touches to your checklist doodle by giving it some needed color. Notice how different shades of brown are used to show darker and lighter shades. You can use color in this way instead of the line shadow effect used in other doodle examples.
