How to Doodle Noise



Step 1

drawing noiseIf someone asked you to visualize NOISE or SOUND, what would you draw? How about a megaphone? To begin drawing your megaphone, draw three lines. One short vertical line, and two longer lines that are angled at 45-degrees. One of the lines is angled slightly upward, while the other slightly downward.


Step 2

We now need to give our megaphone a cone shape. To draw this cone shape, all you need to do is combine two arc shapes together in the gap between the two long lines you drew in the first step. Draw one arc shape connecting the two lines that bends toward the left, and the other arc shape the bends toward the right.


Step 3

Add some more details to your megaphone using a combination of arc shapes and straight lines. Notice how each of these shapes and lines are positioned within and around the megaphone’s body.


Step 4

To highlight the fact that there is SOUND or NOISE coming from our megaphone, let’s doodle several more arc shapes extending outward from our megaphone. Notice how the arc shape that is closest to the megaphone is the smallest. Notice also how these arc shapes get considerably longer and bigger the further out they extend from the megaphone. It’s drawn this way to show how the NOISE or SOUND expands outward.


Step 5

Add the finishing touches to your megaphone doodle by giving it some color. And there we have it. This is our visual representation of NOISE or SOUND. But I’m sure we could have doodled this a different way. How many other ways can you think of to visualize noise?
