How to Draw a Staircase (drawing tips)

Step 1

Doodling a staircase only requires two visual alphabet shapes. You need to understand how to doodle a line and an angle. That’s it. πŸ™‚ However, getting the angles right could present the biggest challenge. Use the example below as a guide.

Next, mirror what you doodled in step 1 to the left or your original doodle. Try your very best to keep the angles equal and the spacing between the lines consistent. Use the example below as a guide.

Step 3

Now, it’s time to connect the two sides of your staircase with straight lines. The tricky part here is understanding how to connect the lines without crossing them over. It’s helpful to begin at the bottom of the staircase and then working your way up. Alternatively, you can begin at the top of the staircase and work your way down one line at a time.

Step 5

The final step is to give your staircase some color. You will see in the example below that different shades of the same color were used. Also, pay careful attention to which parts of the staircase doodle are lighter and which parts are darker. You can even play around with the light and dark shades. Where it’s light or dark just depends on where the light is shining from. πŸ™‚
