Real Life Doodles

Friday, February 13, 2015 09:55 Posted by Leo Saumure
For a while now, I've been following someone on Google Plus named Jennifer Broderick who posts a doodle-a-day image. All of the images that she posts are absolutely fantastic, and many of them, I would gladly hang on my wall.

Using her as inspiration, I have decided to start doodling myself. Not doodling myself as in drawing myself, but rather I am going to start doodling.  ...but you probably understood what I meant, and I pretty much have just insulted you by clarifying what I meant. Now, I am making it even worse by pointing out that you were insulted, and now you're probably angry and embarrassed. Anyway, back to the doodling.

So I purchased a little coil-bound notebook 14 cm X 21 cm (that's 6 X 8.5 inch for those using imperial), and am using it to keep my doodles. Now, there is no way that I will be posting a doodle-a-day like Jennifer does as with work, life and play, I don't have that kind of time. Plus, I'm a novice doodler, and it takes a few days to complete a doodle the way I want it. Finally, when I usually create anything it is usually done with digital tools like Inkscape, GIMP, MyPaint, etc. So working with real-life tools is something I have to get use to. Regardless, of all of that, I'd like to strive to post a doodle-a-week.

So, without further ado, here is my first doodle.

Pencil concept
The pencil concept took me about an hour or so, working about 5 minutes at a time, wherever I could find a free moment, or needed a break in my day.

Ink and coloured pencils
The coloured pencil version, which I just noticed is actually incomplete as I didn't colour the palm tree, took a couple days. Again, this is due to the fact that I only work on it here and there, whenever I find a free minute or so.
