Yay! A new doodle prompt. My last doodle prompt, Viscera Phantasma, has been a huge hit and is flying around Pinterest. Finally, I have taken the time (lots and lots and LOTS of time) to put together another one for you. And you better share your final doodles with me this time! Email them to me at heidimarie.artist at gmail. Thank you ever so much!

Feel free to share these pieces or the entire prompt inย one image as seen here on Pinterest.

So… to create a doodle like this…

Now get doodling! No excuses.

Here’s a simple idea for you! Start with controlled loops. (I always say controlled because despite how loose and free the lines look in doodle art, they should mostly be drawn with thought and purpose.) Make the loops close on the skinny ends. Trace inside the original loops at different widths from the original but the same from loop to loop. (I’m gonna start singing Shirley Temple songs now. Dork alert!) Then fill with patterns.

Try it and, as always, feel free to send me some of your drawings.

I’ll likely come back to these easy loops and try some variations. So watch for it! And, dare I say and have you hold me to it… I’d love to start incorporating faces. I used to draw portraits in pencil. But that was a long time ago and this is a strange new medium. We’ll see.

Sorry, no time lapse. Sometimes I just need to shut it off and doodle. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is a strange one, but I think I like it. Any thoughts?


Too feverish to say much. Here’s my latest. ๐Ÿ™‚


Sadly, I have not had much time to doodle lately. Of course, now that I’m back to it, I go for the most intricate design ever. That’s just so this doodle can take a nice long time to finish. ๐Ÿ™‚

What are your favorite elements? I tend to reuse certain things but I’ve got a few new items in there.

Simplicity rules! I’m liking my latest doodle with its retro feel. Anyone else? Do you prefer my intricate designs or ones with lots of white space like this one?


As I’ve mentioned, I’m addicted to this little treasure of a sketch book. While lounging, I can doodle but there’s not as much pressure as with the larger notepad. I know, I know… get over it. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Oh but it does. ๐Ÿ˜‰




Ta da!
