How to Doodle a Reminder



Step 1

drawing a reminder

If someone asked you to visualize a REMINDER, what would you draw? A visual representation of a reminder could come in many different forms. However, one way that stands out, comes in the form of a piece of string tied to a finger. A nice way to remind ourselves to do something. Let’s see what this looks like. Begin by drawing the index finger. Use an elongated arc shape to show that this finger is pointing upwards.


Step 2

Use a curved line to represent the thumb under the index finger. In the example, the thumb is drawn in one stroke. You can either draw it in one stroke without lifting your pencil, or you can divide it up into parts. When drawing the thumb, pay particular attention to the angle that the thumb is pointing.

Let’s now draw three additional fingers. Use a combination of curved lines and arc shapes to draw these three fingers. Then use another curved line to draw the outside palm of the hand. Hands are tricky to draw, but if you stick with it and follow the example, with practice they will become second nature. 🙂
