How to Draw a Stop Sign (drawing tips)

Step 1

Begin by doodling an octagon using straight lines as shown in the example. Don’t worry if your lines are a little uneven. Doodling isn’t about perfection, but rather about getting ideas across in an effective way. 🙂

Step 2

Use an arc-shape for the top of your sign. For the bottom of your sign, use a couple of straight lines evenly spaced apart. These lines will become the post for your sign.

Step 3

Now write STOP in the middle of the octagonal shape. You can, of course, write whatever you like. There is no written rule that this has to be a STOP sign. 🙂

Step 4

Give your sign some character by adding a couple of straight horizontal lines and some dots to make it look as though the sign is attached to the post.

Step 5

Add the final touches to your sign using some shading on the post. Then add some color to give you sign some character. The colors you use are up to you. A STOP sign doesn’t have to be red, and a red sign doesn’t have to be a STOP sign. 😉
