Hello, hello! 😀 Today I have a fun idea-generator drawing technique to show you. If you don’t know what to draw, this might help!
Technique: Scribble Art-Starters
Begin by closing your eyes and drawing a random squiggly pattern on your paper or ATC. Open your eyes and connect both ends of the line if they’re not already connected. You should have a very strange looking blob on your paper. Here’s my scribble:
Next you have to use your imagination to turn your random squiggle into a picture. (Hint: the simpler the squiggle, the easier the drawing. But you may want to do a complicated squiggle for a challenge, right?) Turn it upside down or look at it from a different angle if you’re stuck. Does it look like a bird? A flower? A person? What do you think my scribble looks like?
I thought mine looked like a fish, so I turned my squiggle into an underwater scene:
Do you see how it works? Here are a few more scribble doodles for inspiration:
Heh heh, it’s kind of addicting.
So there you go – a really easy and fun way to bust “artist’s block” if that is even a thing.
Have you ever done this? Do you think you’ll try it?
