How to Doodle a Tablet



Step 1

If someone asked you to doodle a tablet, what would you draw? We could, of course, draw a simple rectangular tablet. But rather than just doing that, let’s make our tablet doodle a little more visually appealing by including a hand on the tablet. Use elongated arc shapes to draw the fingers of the hand that will be resting on the tablet. Notice how the index finger is longer than the other fingers on our hand.


Step 2

Use a combination of straight and curved lines to draw the thumb, wrist and shirt sleeve area. Pay specific attention to the angles of all the lines in this doodle.
