How to Doodle Wallet

Step 1

In this tutorial, let’s break down how to doodle a wallet. Let’s try to keep our doodle as simple as possible using basic shapes from our visual alphabet. Begin by drawing a rectangle on the right side of your page. Notice how the lines of this rectangle have differing lengths. Notice also how one of the lines is curved. Inside this rectangle draw a small oval shape. This will become the locking mechanism for our wallet. It will ensure that our hard-earned money doesn’t fall out. 🙂

Step 2

Let’s now doodle the main body of our wallet. Use long lines for this purpose. Your lines don’t need to be perfectly straight. In fact, slightly curved lines will make the wallet look more realistic. You can, of course, experiment with the size of the lines. For instance, you can elongate the wallet more than what I did in this example.

Next, let’s make our wallet look a little more realistic. To do this, let’s show that the wallet opens outward. It’s one of those open and close wallets that doesn’t have a zipper but rather a button clip that holds both sections of the wallet together. To draw this section, use a couple of curved lines as shown in the example.

Adding further details to our wallet can not only give it some more personality, but will also help it look more realistic. Lines can be used to give our wallet breadth, depth and texture. For this example, let’s use lines to add some texture to our wallet. Specifically, use several straight lines. Then on the bottom left, I’ve drawn a rectangle with a squiggle in the middle. This is my way of branding this wallet. 😉 Feel free to play around with how you design your wallet.

The final step is to add a splash of color. Notice in the example how I’ve chosen different shades of brown. You can, of course, use a different color scheme. Feel free to play around with this. And if you’ve created a unique pattern or design on your wallet, you will have even more freedom to play around with the colors.
