Hand-Drawn Shapes

Hand-Drawn Shapes example of possible use

This collection of hand-drawn elements will add much to slides that need to show a free-hand markup or embellishment. Sometimes it's better to underline something with a line that appears as if it were jotted onto the page by the author, which will add a different type of emphasis than usual.

All of the graphics are deliberately "off" a little so they look hand-drawn. There are several versions of the same object in case a few are needed on a slide. If they were all the same, the overall effect would cease to look hand-drawn.

The graphics in the series are in different sizes. It is important that the graphic that is the closest to the actual size you need be used, because it will keep the pencil./pen size the same. Otherwise you'll have very thin- and thick-looking pens on the same slide, which won't appear realistic.

The graphics receive their color with fills only. You don't need to apply a line color to it unless you want the line thicker. The graphics are easy to format, size, and use. There is no animation example for this series, since the graphics cannot be animated as if being drawn on the slide.
