Just Doodling

Doodle Art / Pattern Drawing

The name might sound something difficult to try out but we have been doing it since we were kids but never realized that it was a art form. Stuck somewhere,when we are bored or stressed, waiting or listening with a pen in our hand, we start doodling or you can say we start scribbling patterns or names. That's doodle.

A doodle is an unfocused or unconscious drawing made while a person's attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes. Stereotypical examples of doodling are found in school notebooks, often in the margins, drawn by students daydreaming or losing interest during class. Other common examples of doodling are produced during long telephone conversations if a pen and paper are available.  And it is found that what we choose to doodle reveals volumes about our personality and mood. Because of this, we’re usually only  half-conscious of what we’re drawing — which means our inner preoccupations surface on paper.

Study shows Emotional people who want harmony and crave affection tend to use rounded shapes and curved lines. Down-to-earth, practical people tend to use straight lines and  squares. Determined people will use corners, zigzags and triangles, while more hesitant types use light, sketchy strokes. A large doodle shows a person is confident and outgoing, while a small one suggests the person prefers to observe rather than participate. Zigzags are a particularly common doodle and show energetic thinking and a desire to get on with things. Doodling names or initials is common for those who enjoy being the center of attention. I have listed a few of the patterns describing a person's behavior,  there are even many other patterns too.

I have used black pen and paper to create the below artworks using doodles.
In this I have doodled around names to create this art. Can you find out the names in it?

And in this picture below I have first drawn a pattern, and then doodled inside the pattern to create this image.


Have you ever doodled around and created an art ? If not, this time when you doodle try to give it a form and make it an art. Do share your doodling experiences and whether you like this post or not in the comments section below.
