Notebooks can be the gateways to multiple treasures, allowing you to record your thoughts, create your ideas, and receive inspiration. But do you know how to draw your favorite notebook? Well, let’s take a closer look!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Grab a pencil and a ruler, and draw a diagonal line across your page. Add a series of dots to the top of this.
Add another line to the bottom, this time pointing towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page.
Add a line parallel to this, from the right end of the top line, and connect these with another line, parallel to the one at the top.
Add two shorter, parallel lines to the right.
Connect these with a curve at the bottom, and add a short line just above this.
Add another line just above this…
And then add two more lines inside the longer ones.
Connect the lines at the top with a jagged line, and then add a triangle shape to the top to create the pencil. Add a smaller triangle to the top with the pencil.
Use the pencil and ruler to add a dashed line to the left end of the notebook.
Then, add a series of pairs of parallel lines in between each of the dashes.
Connect each set of lines with curves at the ends…
And make the top of these slightly thicker.
Now, add a curved shape to the left of each of these sections to create the binding of the notebook.
Add curved lines across the main body of the notebook…
And shade the bottom of the binding sections with a darker gray pencil.
Next, use a brown pen to color the section right next to the binding.
Use an orange pen for the outer sections of the main book.
Add the brown pen to the bottom of each hole in the binding…
And then complete each hole using a yellow pen. Use the same shade for the central section of the book, and the top of the pencil.
Use a bright red or brown to shade the eraser.
Then, use a navy blue for the section above this…
And use a bright blue pen, a lighter blue pen, and a teal pen to add stripes to the main pencil.
Finally, use your eraser to remove any pencil marks, leaving only color behind.
And there we have it – a notebook waiting to be filled with your hopes, dreams, and aspirations – what will you record first?
