How to Doodle!

Doodling: A Basic Guide

By Loring
May 26, 2016

For most doodlers, doodling is like any sport: easy to learn, hard to master. A lot of times you are trying to doodle, but you just cannot think of what to doodle. Or maybe you forgot your pen. Perhaps you are out of ideas. Maybe those eyes don’t look right. All these problems are faced at a regular basis, even by the most “experienced” doodlers. So I have put together a guide from the Internet and from my personal experiences. You are welcome to doodle on this piece of paper as you read.

Step 1

Find your materials for doodling. This will include a pen or a pencil, and just any type of paper, even this one. Notice how I didn’t mention erasers. Don’t regret your mistakes. Improvise, and in fact, I strongly urge you to doodle with a pen then with a pencil. This is because using a pen will generate a mindset where you know you can’t erase anything. And don’t use whiteout either, you traitor!

Step 2

Pick the right time. Any time you are bored and have the materials listed above, you can doodle! But be careful, because despite some famous companies like Dell encourage their employees to doodle because of the psychological benefits, most managers and teachers don’t like it when their student and employees doodle during working times.

Step 3

Finding inspiration is actually the easiest, yet hardest part of doodling. My advice is to listen to music while doing this, and doodle what you hear from the lyrics or what setting you think the music is telling you. For example, if the lyrics depict people on a boulevard, doodle it! Add your own humorous styles! Another way you can do this is to doodle your surroundings and add your own creative twist! Some people say that art is a gift, or a talent. These people are wrong. Why? Because you just read about how to doodle, and now you can doodle your way around boring times as an amateur doodler!

Hello!

Okay, I know how I haven’t been writing much lately, but that’s because I’ve been working on a project in Minecraft for myself lately. This is a situation like in Detective Conan where Shinchi (as Conan) lies to Ran about working on a case to keep her from getting worried. Just except that’s I’m not lying. Oh well, sorry! But I promise you that screen shots of my big project will be posted for you once it’s done! I promise!

Searching for forgiveness,

Halloween!

Boo!

Yesterday it was Halloween for our school, and we had a big party for the entire elementary school! The ECLC-1st did the big parade and all that other stuff, but the rest of the elementary school did this AWESOME party/celebration in the Parkside building (we have three parts of our school: Mountainside, the ECLC-1st Grade, Parkside, where the 2nd-5th is, and Bayside, which is where the Middle school and High School is), which included a lot of fun activities!

There was this one about rolling a small pumpkin with a broom, and since I played Ice Hockey and was er, okay at it, I did very well compared to the rest of my classmates.

Sadly, I was not part of that photo…

Then there was one where you had to reach into two bowls of “witch guts” (which was actually red spaghetti) and try to find four “witch fingers” (which were plastic and rubber broken finger replicas) blindfolded…

There was also one where you have to wrap one of your classmates with TP, and then a “judge” decides which one is better.

Yes, I’m the one in the green shorts and Hawaiian shirt…

Bossk Instructions! Bossk Instructions!

Hello SFs and SW Fans,
Here’s another one of my classic instrux. Aaron again, wanted his favorite bounty hunter in origami finger puppet form. Him being my best friend, I agreed to make an instrux for his desire.

Plo Koon Instrux!

Hey SFs &SWFs,

This is one of my earliest origami instructions by me-my best friend Aaron’s favourite Star Wars character is Plo Koon, but he couldn’t find the right instrux for it so he asked me to make one. Here it is-

And then I did a little something to it… You can do the same with your photos on SuperLame.com!

My Snowtrooper Origami Instructions!

Hey SFs and SW Fans,

For four months I’ve been trying to fold a snowtrooper-and after over four months I figured it out! Here it is!

There are some hard parts in the written instructions, so I made a video instrux! It’s a bit long to upload in one, so I separated it into 3 parts. It has a total length of 6 minutes.
