Doodling is an uncomplicated way to draw using simple shapes and lines. The process itself is like a kind of meditation, it is relaxing and calming. And today you will learn how to draw doodles.
Where to Start Drawing Doodles (How to Draw Doodles)
There are some universal tips to help beginners:Get your own special notebook for creativity and drawing. It should be heavy paper and not too big so you can always take it with you.
Make blanks. At the very beginning, a blank white sheet causes a stupor. How to draw? Where do I start? Won’t I draw badly or incorrectly? So make some blanks for yourself. For example, on a blank sheet of paper draw a few stenciled images: circles, squares, triangles, hearts. Trace any simple and complicated shapes that you come across. And then try to color them. You can also draw a big contour of letters and then fill it with drawings.
You can prepare paper and apply a light background, like watercolor paint, and then use gel pens to draw the doodles on top of it. Or you can do the opposite, drawing the doodle first and then coloring it with felt-tip pens.
Prepare tools that you like and enjoy working with. The paper should be thick and comfortable enough, and it is better to take gel pens or thin capillary pens. It is desirable to have pens of several colors. Markers or felt-tip pens are good for coloring.
Choose and draw simple doodling elements that are often very simple to do, but look beautiful and effective. Group, and go step by step from simple to complex.
Allocate time for drawings. 15-20 minutes a day is enough – over morning coffee, at lunchtime, or in the evening before going to bed. But you shouldn’t be distracted by anything – it’s your time and your creativity!
Probably the most important piece of advice: Don’t worry about the result. Turn off your “inner critic” for a while and be in the flow, accept whatever you get. And practice!

I think the most important thing for beginners is to keep it simple and have fun while drawing. Doodling for beginners and novices should be fun and engaging, then you can draw more and more and your skill will grow step by step from drawing to drawing.
After all, who cares what you like to call what you do? Draw as you like, with or without rules. In my experience, all the rules of drawing in any style are necessary to remove fear.
When you draw by the rules, or redraw, there is no fear. But there is no freedom either. So follow the rules, just in the beginning, and then fantasize and have fun. Go your own way!

Simply turn on some pleasant music so that your attention is distracted and your mind can shift. Take a pencil, a liner or a pen in your hand and draw, drawing lines without thinking about where and how they should be drawn. Don’t particularly get hung up; listen to music, you can even sing along; let your hand move the pen freely on the page. In this way an initial outline for a drawing can be created, and then the empty space inside the outline will be filled in with patterns.
You might want to experiment with color, which is not forbidden in doodling. Someone draws in black and white, blue, green tones, and someone uses the whole palette of colors. It all depends on the imagination and tastes of the artist. So create, invent, and try it out with gusto!
