How to Doodle Quit

Step 1

drawing quit

If someone asked you to visualize the idea of someone QUITTING something, what would you draw? Many people try and quit smoking. So let’s use quitting smoking as our visual. Begin by drawing a couple of arc shapes facing each other on a 45-degree angle. Next, draw a line on each arc shape that closes the shape. So, effectively you are left with two half-pizza shapes.

Step 2

Along the outside, draw an oval shape. I say “oval” because a circle shape is perfectly round. And that is very difficult to do when drawing by hand. But we can certainly get away with an oval that doesn’t need to be perfectly round. 🙂

Step 3

Use a combination of straight lines to draw the cigarette shape. Notice how the cigarette is partially hidden behind the thick line going through the middle of the oval shape. This gives us the impression that the cigarette is in the background.

Let’s now make this shape look more like a cigarette. To do this, use a combination of straight and curved lines. The curved lines represent the cigarette smoke.

Step 5

Add the finishing touches to your doodle by giving it some color. And there we have it. This is our visual representation of QUITTING something. In this case, it represents quitting smoking. However, you can use this visual to represent making other things as well. You might just need to replace the cigarette with another visual. Try it out using different doodles and see how it goes.
