How to Draw a Padlock (drawing tips)

Step 1

To doodle a padlock, begin by drawing a rectangle or square in the middle of your page. The rectangle doesn’t need to be perfect. The corners also don’t need to be sharp. They can be slightly rounded.


Step 2

Use an arc shape and place it on top of the rectangle you drew in step 1. Notice the size of this arc shape shown in the example and how it is positioned on the body of the padlock.
