A little while ago someone suggested to me that I do a tutorial on how I create my doodle pages in my journal, which I thought would be kinda fun! So this is a post on my own way of doodling.
- First, I do a loose sketch onto a double page of a boarder and then a few large swirls and shapes, fitting around each other. I added some bubbles sporadically.
2. I then went over my sketch with a black pen. I found a Pilot Signpen was great for this. I started adding in detail at the point with the black, and didn’t plan it too much just letting it come along organically.
3. Then began to add colour and used a few different kinds of pen, including Faber-Castell PITT artist pen which is really smooth and good for colouring in large areas. I also added more details with the black.
4. When I had finished adding colour I painted round the boarder in black acrylic, which saved me time from using a pen (and my pen!) and pulled the picture together with a stronger black.
I found this doodle relaxing and enjoyable, and have already started a new one. Hope everyone likes this very basic tutorial!
