What is the definition of doodling?

What exactly is a doodle? A doodle is defined as an unfocused or unconscious drawing created when a person's attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can be abstract shapes or have a clear visual significance.'

The meaning of "to doodle" meant "to draw, sketch, or scribble idly while doing something else." Doodles are basic sketches that can be abstract shapes, thinking, or have a concrete representational sense.

When you doodle while doing something else, such as speaking on the phone, sitting at school, or in a group, you can start scribbling various shapes, patterns, and other doodles drawings randomly.

Anger, stress, and pressure are common causes for these hand-drawn forms. Some people become bored during conferences because they avoid doing anything, so they begin to doodle to pass the time.

Doodling while listening to someone feed you information can seem impolite, but doodling while listening to someone feed you information will actually help you remember the information better.

Types of Doodling

Today I'm talking about the low-stress FUN type of doodling; it's simple, enjoyable, and tough to quit once you start.

It can be as simple or as complex as you want, and the doodle can either be the art or a component of it. Most of us doodle without even realizing it, whether we realize it or not. Today, I'm going to give you some options for incorporating these small drawings into your Copic Art Journal - or any art for that matter.

Tips for Doodling:

• You should warm up before you begin. Warm up the muscles you'll be utilizing to sketch, just like you would for exercise. The ideal way to do this is to take a blank piece of paper, set a timer for ten minutes, and start doodling freely. During this period, don't overthink anything or set any expectations; simply draw.

Draw shapes, words, symbols, and other things, and don't put your pen down for the entire 10-minute period.

• Consider things in terms of their basic shapes. It takes some work to get good at this. When looking at anything you want to draw, though, try to ignore the intricacies and focus solely on the basic outlines. The shape of a book is rectangular.

The stem of a flower is only two parallel lines, and the flower is circular. An upside-down triangle with a circle on top is an ice cream cone. Begin with these fundamental shapes and work your way up from there.

• Make your lines a variety of thicknesses. You may not have a large selection of pens to choose from when you first start out. However, as your pen collection grows, you'll be able to choose from a number of nib sizes.

To add diversity and interest to your lines, use multiple nib sizes. Personally, I prefer a thicker outline with smaller, finer features in the interior.

• Look for your happy location. This may be at your work with a cup of coffee, nestled up on your bed or couch with headphones on listening to your favorite music or sitting on the floor in your living room. Finding your happy spot, on the other hand, is critical to your doodling success. Your drawings will come out clearer and your creativity will flourish when you are calm and actually enjoying your time.

• There is no such thing as a right or wrong manner. It's possible that the way I draw a purse and how you draw a purse is completely different. But that doesn't make one of them correct or incorrect. As you practice, you will develop your own personal style.

Allow it to happen naturally rather than trying to make your doodles appear like someone else's. The simplest method to achieve this is to pick a single subject and doodle it as many times as possible.

What You'll Need to Begin

Doodling does not necessitate a large number of materials. All you need is a piece of paper and a pencil to get started. On the other side, if you want to make doodle art, you'll need more materials.

• Pencils

The first drawing of your doodle that comes to mind is best done with a pencil. I suggest using a soft pencil with a low HB grade so you can quickly erase it if you need to change your doodle.

• A pencil eraser

It's inevitable that you'll make mistakes when doodling. When that happens, you'll need a decent eraser to clean up the mess.

• Ink Pens

The outlines of your doodle sketch are drawn with a drawing pen. For refining and shading your doodle, you can use different thicknesses of the writing tip according to your preferences.

• Pencil colors 

These pencil colors are the best if you want to add some color to your doodles.

• Markers

If you don't like colored pencils, you can color your doodle art with markers instead.

• Sketch Paper

I would suggest a sketchbook or drawing book if you want to organize your work and look back on it from time to time.

As you can see, this is a very simple and fast process of creating doodle art for beginners. All you'll need are some pencils, pens, color, stencils, markers, or a graphic tablet, as well as the ability to watch the how-to Doodle Art for Beginners course's videos step by step to follow along. Finally, you'll be able to draw Doodles more easily and will feel more at ease drawing in general.
