How to Doodle Risk-Taking



Step 1

drawing risk

If someone asked you to visualize the idea of RISK-TAKING, what would you draw? We need to think of something simple that we could draw fairly quickly that would demonstrate the idea of RISK-TAKING. Let’s give it a go. Begin by drawing almost a full oval shape on your page. Notice in the example the gap in the oval shape.


Step 2

Extending from this gap, use a combination of straight lines and v-shaped lines to draw what looks like a very wonky pole. Your doodle doesn’t necessarily need to look exactly like the example above. You can draw something that looks like it. This will become our climbing pole.


Step 3

Next, draw a head of a stick figure. Use a straight line for the mouth. Notice how the head is about 3/4 of the way up the pole.

Now we must show that our stick figure is climbing the pole. Notice the positioning of the hands and feet of our stick figure. You can, of course, change up the positioning. The idea is to show that the stick figure is climbing the pole.


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 RISK-TAKING. Do you get it? Our stick figure is climbing a long pole. It looks dangerous, and so he/she is taking a risk. But this is, of course, one of many ways we could draw the idea of RISK-TAKING. How many other ways can you think of?
