My thoughts on doodling~
Since I have been doodling a lot lately, I wanted to write something that has to deal with doodling. Before I begin, this "information" is based on my own opinion, you can take this is a reference of some sort or do not. That is up to you.
Doodling: Something that could be abstract, free flowing, and with no "plan." Most of my doodles and maybe for other doodlers this definition could apply. And I do not plan my doodles, whatever happens...Happens.
How to doodle: Just like any type of art, you have to practice, practice and more practice. For me, doodling is based in my mind what shapes do I see -lines, curvy or abstract. There are loads of videos online for doodling; I look at them for inspiration. As long as you have, hands and a mind...Doodle.
Who says you need to have great-top-of-the-line pens/makers? This applies to the whole art thing - Not just doodling. Is it "cool" to have the Prisma makers, or the Micron markers that come in different sizes. Yes. But you can create the same thing using a Bic ballpoint pen; you could even create something with a stick in the sand. Not only does this apply to the pens and markers. But paper. Any paper is fine, really. You can create the most magnificent piece of art on a napkin. However, I use the Moleskine sketchbook and I do love it. Any why do I love the Moleskine? The pages are smooth and for one I grew use to the pages of how smooth they are.
But what is considered a "Doodle?" Well, anything really. I however consider a doodle as unplanned.
But why doodle? Boredom? It takes me to my artsy side. And really, there is no right or wrong way of doodling. It just happens.
My doodles are mostly black and white. But does it have to be? Nope. It could be blue and orange; it could be the ugliest color on the planet. It is your doodle.
What is so great about doodling? No symmetrical crap. I hate doing anything symmetrical. Second, there is no wrong way, and there is no right way. Third, if you made a mistake, cover it up. Fourth, it takes up time, bored at the airport. Doodle. Bored at school? Doodle. Doodle.
But should I use a pen/maker? You can use a Crayola crayon, and I would still call it a doodle, you can draw it with a highlighter. Still a doodle.
I made a mistake now what? Fix it, but do not throw it away. Cover it up somehow. Throw it away at a last resort.
Are there types of doodles?
Yes - sort of.
Lastly, what pens/markers do I use (These are not use on a daily bases while doodling)
* Denotes most used
Pilot G2 pen 07*
Jell pens (Some off brand)
Bic color pens *
Papermate (The pen itself has four colors: Red, Black, Green and Blue)
Prisma thin liner (Not the metallic casings)
