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 :)

Step 2: Starting to Draw

First of all, you need to choose a shape to start with. I like to start with a butterfly, since you can use the feelers to add the first curls to your doodle.

Step 3: Getting Curly and Adding Shapes

To create a place to draw a shape, you can draw a second curl as shown. The place between the two curls is perfert

Step 4: And More Curls

And now it is up to you: doodle away! I've added some pictures for possible inspiration :)

Step 5: Done!

And that's what my finished doodle drawing looks like! To end it, all I did was draw on the wings of the butterfly, since they looked a bit empty in the doodly result :) I really hope you liked this instructable and found it useful, I would love to see your doodles!

Because of this wonderful idea in class I made one for my teacher and everybody loved it thank you
<p>I'm glad you liked it! </p>
<p>Nice! Can you use the curly wirly swirlies as a jumpstart to jewelry designs?</p>
<p>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...</p>
<p>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! </p>
This is the one I made
<p>Awesome :D</p>
amazing how long does it take though
<p>I takes about 10 minutes I'd say</p>
it looks so cool
<p>The first thing that comes to my mind when looking at this ible is &quot;relax&quot;! What you drew gives a relax feeling itself and I'm sure that drawing it was also very relaxing! (Tarun's forum topic &quot;what calms you down?&quot; has just come to my mind!).</p><p>It's just too good to be considered a doodle!! :)</p>
<p>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 </p>
<p>haha you are right, better to look at it that way!! :D</p>
<p>:D </p>
Very cute!! I am so trying this!!
<p>Thank you!</p>
<p>I see swirls! :p love the simple patterns, very inspirational! :)</p>
<p>Thank you Muhaiminah :D </p>
<p>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</p><p>This should get featured :)</p>
<p>Thank you so much! Yes, It's hard to resist doodling!!! </p>
<p>Haha, no problem!</p>
<p>Forgive me bro, when do you sleep? I am really curious :D</p>
<p>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</p><p>I get notifications to my email the second someone posts something and so I am usually the first to comment. :-)</p><p>And like most Indian parents, my parents are very strict about education and bedtimes ;-)</p><p>I guess that your asking this because I'm active? Well I hope I answered your question! :D</p>
<p>You answered it very well Bro. Atta Boy :D</p>
<p>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)</p><p>Thanks again Tarun, you are too kind!:-)</p>
<p>Ha ha ha ha :), actually I replied from my phone, I meant to write attaboy :)</p>
<p>XD attaboy would make more sense :-). Do you use the app then? :-P</p>
<p>Yes I do :)</p>
<p>ahh right, do you get notifications on the app? (I have used the app before, but I don't think you do)</p><p>Also sorry I'm asking so many Q's :-P Just curious.</p>
<p>Very cute drawings Emily, I see many jewelry patterns in those.. Do ya ? :D</p>
<p>Thanks! Don't get started, there are already about 100 projects I need to make :P </p>
<p>Wow... I will be watching ..btw Did you check my latest ible?</p>
