We ran out of letters for the rest of the month so December 27-31 is free doodling time. I have spent the last couple of days creating Snowmen doodles and cartoons.
Ready for January?...
The theme for Doodle Day in January is Settings/Backgrounds. Many of us have spent years working on characters and have neglected working on setting our scenes with locations so that is our focus for one month.
These doodles can use a minimum amount of illustration to show where the action is taking place or be super intricate and detailed. The list of prompts includes places that where stories would commonly take place in children's books such as "bedroom, park, school..." These prompts are very open ended. A bedroom can be in a house, a cave, a castle, a tree, ... A park can include a playground, an open field, a flower garden, a theme park, ... The time period, the country, and the details are not included in the prompt - those are up to the doodlers.
This challenge theme will be difficult but I look forward to having a collection of settings at the end of the month. If you want to join the Doodle Day group, click HERE. This is a super supportive community of people including everyone from children to teachers to professional artists to people who claim that they can't draw stick figures. All doodlers are welcome. We also post and share websites, online courses, books, seminars and webinars, blogs, etc... to help each other learn more about drawing.
