Step 1: Gather Your Materials
You don’t need much to get started. Grab a pencil, some paper, an eraser (kneaded works best), a piece of paper.

Next, consider the shape or profile of the mountains. Create a blueprint by using the simplest form of mark-making: dots. This is the foundation of your doodle.
Step 3: Build on top of your foundation
Begin to add some solid lines on top of your dots. From there, think about the elements you’d like to see in your doodle, for example, snow at the summit of a mountain or a reflective lake.
