Lately, I have been hooked in doodle-ing. This activity is perfect when you’re waiting and just killing time (like waiting for my rendering to finish, waiting for my food to arrive in a fast food, and waiting for my bf to pick me up after office hours). For me, its a good activity to spend your own time. You’ll get to know your skill and traits (creativity and patience) and develop them.
As of now I already produced three doodle artworks.
First is the flowers. I am just inspired on the different shapes of a petals and its leaves. Since this is not a planned artpiece (obviously), I just did it in a piece of notepad from MC Home Depot (Fort) showing all the lines and the header and footer of the notepad. 😅😅😅
Second is the Bless you. On this piece, I was inspired to do a doodle with a lettering. I also did it on the same notepad I used on the first one since I am just practising. Later when I realise that I should have done it in a clean piece of paper. 😁😁😁 Also, if you’ll observe, I did not erase all the pencil lines I have drawn as guide for my pen markings. This way my little niece would see how it would trasform after the pen markings. Also a good way of teaching that you’ll need to have a pencil guideline first as a beginner. 👍🏻
The third one is what I call Boxes of ideas which I just finished recently. Did it again on my favorite notepad but on the back portion of the sheet. 😆😆😆 Well at first I just create boxes which I would fill in patterns and ideas. It took me two weeks to finish this as I am having a hard time on what to draw first and to which boxes should it be placed. My favorite pattern here is the one in the L-shaped boxed at the bottom right corner. I dont know but it just gives me enough idea to create again a new one. ✌🏻️
Lastly, is the Months of a Year. This is not part of the doodle activity but I would also like to share this to you guys. This is just a practise for the activity I am planning to be engaged with on the next few weeks – calligraphy.
All of them are done by Dong-A My Gel Pen at 0.5 and 0.7, Pilot G-tech – C3, and Mongol Pencil No.2. All are in cheap prices and available in the stores near you.
If ever you’ll be doing the same in the future, I would suggest to do it in a clean sheet of paper. This way you will not regret the same thing that happen to me seing the label of the notepad. 😁😁😁
Create simple lines repeatedly, give depths on every line, start edges and curves, form a pattern, and viola, you’ll be surprised that you have made an artwork by yourself. Did any of this captured your creativity? Go start your own now. I’ll be happy to see your work. 😛
