How to Draw Jazz (drawing tips)

Step 1

If someone asked you to visualize JAZZ, what would you draw? For this example, we will draw a saxophone. To begin your saxophone doodle, draw the shape you see in the example above. Use long curvy lines. Your shape doesn’t necessarily need to look exactly like the shape in the example. It can vary slightly. Saxophones can come in a variety of shapes and sizes. 🙂


Step 2

Having drawn the body of your saxophone, let’s now doodle the keys. To draw the bell keys, draw three 3-quarter box shapes on the side of the neck of your saxophone.


Step 3

Let’s now add some additional details to our saxophone. At the right end of our saxophone, we have the bow. Draw an elongated curved line here. Then add a short straight line to represent the mouthpiece of our saxophone.


Step 4

To highlight that the saxophone is playing music, let’s draw some musical notes coming from the bow of our saxophone. The music notes you doodle here are completely up to you. Feel free to follow the example, or create your own.


Step 5

Add the finishing touches to your saxophone doodle by drawing a couple of elongated oval shapes near the bottom of your saxophone. These give us the impression that the saxophone is reflecting light. Then, of course, give your saxophone some color. And there you have it. This now becomes our JAZZ doodle. This is one way to visually represent JAZZ. How many other ways can you think of?
