How to Doodle Gravity



Step 1

drawing gravity

If someone asked you to visualize GRAVITY, what would you draw? This is a tough one since gravity is imperceptible. However, it is possible to represent it in a visual by using something we are already familiar with. For this doodle, let’s draw a representation of our solar system to visualize gravity. Begin your doodle by drawing a circle in the middle of your page. This circle will become the center of our gravity field.


Step 2

Around this circle, draw numerous v-shapes as shown within the example. This now becomes our sun which lies at the center of our gravity field.


Step 3

Around our sun, let’s draw three larger circles. Notice the spacing and size of each of the three circles. These circles will become the orbits of planets revolving around the sun.


Step 4

To help us represent the idea of GRAVITY, let’s now draw these planets. Doodle three circle shapes along each of our orbits. These circle shapes will become our planets orbiting around the sun.
