How to Doodle a Desk

Step 1

Begin by doodling a straight horizontal line in the middle of the page. Right beneath this line, doodle another horizontal line. Keep the spacing between the two lines even and join them up at the ends. Above this, doodle another horizontal line that is a little shorter. Now connect this line to the original lines below it to close the shape.

Step 2

On the right side of your doodle, draw an upright rectangle. Divide this rectangle into three sections using two horizontal lines, then doodle three small rectangles within each of the three larger rectangles. Now, on the right side, doodle a couple of straight vertical lines that match the length of the rectangle you doodled on the left. Join these lines up on the bottom to close the shape.

Step 3

To give the desk a 3-dimensional look and feel, doodle a couple of vertical lines extending from the top of the table. However, make sure that these lines are a little shorter than the other vertical lines you doodled in the previous step. Now connect these two vertical lines to the draws and leg of the table.

Step 4

Add some shading to your table by using carefully positioned lines on the bottom inside panel and the top of the table. You can, of course, play around with the size and positioning of the lines as well as the spacing between each line.

Step 5

The final touch is to add a splash of color to your doodle. Use either various shades of the same color, or alternatively, you can use complementary colors that will give your doodle some vibrancy and life.
