Picture of A curly piece of art

For everyone who likes to draw: it doesn't have to be complicated or time-consuming!

In this instructable I will show you how to make this doodle kind of drawing I make all the time. All the skills you need to have to make this, is knowing how to use a pen/pencil. When making this drawing, try not to think about the end result, just doodle away, this will make the drawing so much more fun and could even result in a better drawing!

I made an instructable on this kind of drawing before, but the pics were a bit hazy and it only had one sentence of text, so I decided to remake it :)

Step 1: Materials

All you need is a piece of paper and pen/pencil :)

Nice! Can you use the curly wirly swirlies as a jumpstart to jewelry designs?

PS: We visited the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam last week. There's a _huge_ exhibition of Marcel Wanders. Big time interior designer. You should go there as well. Because I happen to know that you will love it. The guy makes crocheted(!) lamps...

Thank you! I am going to try to use it in jewelry, but probably after finishing all the unfinished stuff I'm working on at the moment :) *searches google images* Those are amazing!

Awesome :D

amazing how long does it take though

I takes about 10 minutes I'd say

it looks so cool

The first thing that comes to my mind when looking at this ible is "relax"! What you drew gives a relax feeling itself and I'm sure that drawing it was also very relaxing! (Tarun's forum topic "what calms you down?" has just come to my mind!).

It's just too good to be considered a doodle!! :)

THank you so much Linda! It is relaxing indeed :) Still, I like to say I doodle during class better than I draw during class :p

haha you are right, better to look at it that way!! :D

Wow! This looks awesome and very neat! I might try it sometime - I can't resist doodling ;-) Well done Emily, you did a great job and thanks for sharing :D

This should get featured :)

emilyvanleemput (author)  hunter9991 year ago

Thank you so much! Yes, It's hard to resist doodling!!!

Haha, no problem!

Forgive me bro, when do you sleep? I am really curious :D

Haha, I always go to bed at 9pm and wake up at 9 in the morning or 7 am on a weekday. But I am always on 'Ibles. Like most people, it is my home. :D

I get notifications to my email the second someone posts something and so I am usually the first to comment. :-)

And like most Indian parents, my parents are very strict about education and bedtimes ;-)

I guess that your asking this because I'm active? Well I hope I answered your question! :D

You answered it very well Bro. Atta Boy :D

Thanks Tarun! :D Funny enough, I first did not know what the term 'Atta Boy' meant before I googled it. I thought that you thought that I make atta (you know for roti XD)

Thanks again Tarun, you are too kind!:-)

Ha ha ha ha :), actually I replied from my phone, I meant to write attaboy :)

XD attaboy would make more sense :-). Do you use the app then? :-P

Yes I do :)

ahh right, do you get notifications on the app? (I have used the app before, but I don't think you do)

Also sorry I'm asking so many Q's :-P Just curious.

Very cute drawings Emily, I see many jewelry patterns in those.. Do ya ? :D

Thanks! Don't get started, there are already about 100 projects I need to make :P

Wow... I will be watching ..btw Did you check my latest ible?

I sure have, can't believe I forgot to post a comment!
