How to Doodle Karate
If someone asked you to doodle Karate, what would you draw? How about a hand chopping a piece of wood? Begin your karate doodle by drawing the hand. Use elongated arc shapes to draw each of the fingers and thumb. Notice the length and thickness of each finger in the example.
Use for slightly curved lines to draw the shift sleeve. Notice how the four lines have been combined to create a square shape the forms the sleeve.
To draw the woodblocks, use stacked rectangle shapes. Notice how these rectangles are stacked on top of one another. Notice also the angle of these rectangles and the gap between them.
To show that the hand is actually chopping down on the wooden blocks, we must draw some motion and impact lines. On top of the arm, draw three slightly curved lines that signify that the arm motion is coming downwards. Next, use a combination of v-shapes below the woodblocks to show that there has been an impact and that the blocks have snapped in half.
Finish off your karate doodle by giving it some color. And there you have it. This is one way to represent the idea of Karate in a visual way. How many other ways can you think of to represent the idea of Karate?
