The challenge went out to hundreds of doodlers in the Facebook group, For the Love of Doodling, to create their own version of this doodle. I’m so happy to share the great variety of results!

The following works of art are © by the names listed beneath each.

I love every one of them and am honored you liked this challenge enough to participate and share! Comment below if there’s another doodle on this site you’d like to see a tutorial, prompt or challenge for.

I am really happy with this design, as you can see because I’ve already uploaded it on Society6.com in both its original black and white and as in color. Which do you like better?

It’s such a simple design. Start with a squiggly, add “leaves.” That’s all. When filling in the large black areas, don’t “color” in the traditional sense. Draw consecutive straight lines across the page until it’s all covered. It sounds ridiculous but it lends for a very clean black area. Also, you can’t really see it in the progress shots but I started this one with a compass and a very light penciled in circle. It’s something new I’ve been trying. If you don’t have a compass, try tracing a large, round object.

Unemployment sucks. Let’s take advantage of it by doodling our brains out.

She’s my #1 inspirational artist! Thank you, Shannie, for sharing these with me so I can share them with the world. I love her style. I love that our styles are so different yet she’s the one who got me into it. And when I lose inspiration and get tired of doodling the same things over and over, I spend a week at her house, watching her doodle in her own style, and I’m ready to go again.

I always hear, “I love to doodle but I’m just not good at it. I never know what to draw.” I have come up with a solution! May I present (duh duh DAH!) Doodle Prompts. Give it a try (for real) and let me know if it helps you at all.

Start by watching this time-lapse video to get a better feel for the process. Watch how I skip around the page a bunch. This is because I will be doodling along and feel that a particular area needs some solid black. Then I’ll notice that I haven’t used a certain element in another area and I’ll go add some of that. Sometimes, I’ll pause to look at it, even squinting my eyes, to see if it feels balanced. Don’t get caught up in tiny details. Every now and then, throw in something big and then work tiny details in around it.

Then use these tutorials to get the basic elements down. (You have my permission to print the following two images/pages. Just click on them to go full size. Then print.)

Use this starter page to get you going. Once you’ve tried it using this prompt, start a fresh drawing on nice paper.

Here’s how my doodle turned out. 🙂

I really want to see your drawings from this doodle prompt. Message me with a picture of your final work. heidimarie.artist [@] gmail [com] I’d like to create a post in a few weeks with all your drawings but if you’d rather I don’t share yours, just let me know. If this was helpful to you, leave me a comment. If you have any suggestions, leave me a comment.

Now doodle!

I started this doodle art drawing and… kind of liked it. So I decided, even after starting the doodle, to do a time lapse video. I haven’t done one in a while because… you know… it requires effort. Please accept my apologies for a sorta half time lapse video of a not-my-best doodle drawing.

hahaha I really sold you on this one, didn’t I?

 

Later, in another post maybe, I’ll share the final image. But for now, discover it through the video.

Oh flowers, my flowers… I’m so bored with you. I need something new to doodle!! There are only so many ways to doodle flowers and leaves. And despite how much I love them and how easy they’ve become, I need to challenge myself with new concepts. It sends me right back to Scary Land. Which is silly because doodling is not supposed to be stressful!!
