Step 1: Step 1: Joining
The first thing I did was start off with scribbles then found two scribbles close to each other and joined them. Once joined i went over them to make the lines thicker leaving no gaps.
Step 2: Step 2: Filling Spaces (patterns)
The next thing I did once I joined the lines to create a shape was filling the blank space inside the shape. To fill it in and make it look good I chose a straight line pattern where the shape bends.
Step 3: Step 3: Adding More Shapes
Once the first shape was completed I then moved down to the next shape I could create using the scribbles and also adding my own lines to join them with.
Step 4: Step 4: Attaching Lines/curves
Now two shapes had been created so I went on to create the third one but wanted to attach a line to shape one.
Step 5: Step 5: Filling in and Continuing Lines Between Shapes
When doodling sometimes you make mistake and lines/shapes don't look the way you wanted them to look,so the trick is to improvise. Here I didn't like how a part looked so i shaded it in and rounded lines up to make it look better than the first idea. Also behind shapes I continued lines to the other side and made them look similar so that people know the line had been continued and it is part of a shape but another shape is in the way.
Step 6: Step 6: Be Imaginative
When most of the page had been filled with shapes and it looked good but there was still a scribble left on its own I let my imagination help so I created another identical scribble on the opposite side and created wings to join them up and make them look good.
Step 7: Step 7: Finished Doodling
Once I was happy with the doodling I had done to the scribbles I then imported it to my computer.
Step 8: Step 8: Image Tracing
Once i uploaded the image to my laptop,I then opened up Adobe Illustrator and opened the image. Then I clicked on the image and hit "Image Trace" at the top toolbar.
Step 9: Step 9: Bringing the Design to Life!
Once the image was traced I then imported it into photoshop to add colour and nice border to make it stand out and look good!
Step 10: Completed!
Now you have a work of Art that could be hung in a room or used as a Wallpaper/Screen saver!
