Yay! Crazy pants are here! I’ve been watching leggings grow in popularity on Society6.com and now I’m happy to announce I’ve posted my first pair with the very popular “Tangled” doodle.

A quick little ditty.

I recently discovered a few older time-lapse videos that you should see soon. This one, however, was made just the other day. Easy peasy doodle. Enjoy!

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.

time-lapse doodle art

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.)

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.

The Original Doodle Design

I’m not even sure I ever posted this design when I created it but it’s been one of my favorites for its simplicity. Others have given it the descriptive term “Swedish Art” which for whatever reason makes me happy. I think it’s more that it’s considered to be art than that it has a Swedish flare. As I’ve mentioned before, I often flip flop between very intricate doodle designs and then super simple ones. And I’m always surprised by how quickly these simple ones just pop out of me and onto the paper. You’d think I would always keep my doodle art simple.

No. I like to complicate things. haha

Anyway, here’s the original.

The Gift Designs

So I took that design and played with it a bit. I have to give credit to my friend, Patty, for suggesting the bit of red in this design. I’m so happy with the result, especially against the black background. Check out all the gift items this design comes on. They look so pretty! Fun!
