1. Introduction: Art is something that has always fascinated me. Be painting, sketching, or shading identity. Not Whenever I get. After making use of practicing different art forms. I came across due to the beautiful drawings that can be creative with just a pen and paper. I was amazed at the simplicity of this art form. Only with a pen and paper, you can do wonders. Since then. I've been doubling almost everyday. Hi, my name is momenta and I'm an aphid dude there and Corporate Professional based in India. I love to blame. It is so easy to learn and pursue. You can create beautiful patterns like combining a few basic shapes in different ways. I tried many combinations and my DO blues and even paired a concrete object with an abstract pattern. That is also pretty much become my dude links Jain now I call it fusion duty. In this class, I'll teach you how to create different patterns and also share how you can search for simple objects that you can bear with abstract battles. Along the way, I shared many useful tips that will enhance your doodling experience. By the end of this class, you'll be confidently combining the patterns and objects to create your own fusion duties. You will also see that doodling can be used in many other artworks. Recently, I created the striving painting. Dragon paintings are interrogate borders and simple but decorated figures of humans, animals, and boats. And what better way to decorate them then doodling. Remember, anyone can do. So. You need no prior knowledge in any art form for this class. This class is great for beginners, but it's enough to experiment with your artworks and style. You can go for it irrespective of your level. It would be fun. So let's get started. See you in the next lesson. 2. Your Project: Your project for this class will be to create your own fusion due to combine any object that grabs your attention that an abstract button of your choice. You can be as experimental and alpha adventurous as you want to be. A little tip here is, go for the simplest objects, they're easy to draw. You don't need any preparations for this project, except some time to spare. And some basic supplies, which I'll talk about in the next class. I can't wait to see your unique creations. So do upload your work in the projects and resources section. Once you've finished. Don't worry, you will do great. Now, let's go grab art supplies. 3. Supplies: You can begin to dealing with very basic supplies. Some fence, paper, pencil, and eraser. I began doodling that luxury seven high-tech point violet Ben. It is the common pilot friends students use. And you can find it in any stationary shop. It has worked perfectly fine for me and even now, the one I'm most comfortable doodling with. You can also go for the sigma micron archival lengthens, which are specifically suitable for doodling and illustrations. That provides a good contrast on white paper and the ink doesn't fade. These bands come in different sizes. So you can vary the thickness of your lines whenever you want. With the pilot. Your lines will be of equal thickness. But if you're okay with it, then it's fine. I suggest not using ballpoint pens or pencils as they do not give an even look when you use them to fill up a space. Also, they do not provide a good contrast and pencil lines fade with time. In a nutshell, you do not get the effect you want with ballpoint pens and pencils. You can also keep a black sketch pen for drawing thick lines and filling up small spaces. For filling up larger spaces. A sketch bin isn't advisable as you don't get an even look with it. But nonetheless, it's a useful thing to have. For papal. You can use printer paper, A4 size drawing sheets. The common drawing copy. Schoolchildren use dot grit paper and even ruled paper. It's yo dude, you. So whatever you like is five. A little tip here is, before you begin doodling, place the tip of the pen on paper and wait for a couple of seconds. If the ink spills, it's better not to use that paper. It will spoil you do. The best paper for doodling though is the Bristol heavy weight and ultra small sheets. You can feel the difference once you start moving your pen, the contrast is great and the pen moves smoothly. Here, I would like to point out that though the pig bomb Micron pens and the Bristol sheets or the best combination for your duties. They don't come cheap. So invest in them only if you're doodling regularly and planned to do so for law. Else, the Info Size drawing sheets and the pilot Ben works pretty well to give you a smooth finish. Finally, I suggest buying a compass. This is optional. But if at, anytime you wish to draw a circle or a few concentric circles, then you need the compass. But go for the compass in which you can fit a pen. As each time you draw a circle, you will need to duck in the line with the pen later. And free hand reinforcing wouldn't give you a smooth dark. So that's pretty much about supplies. In the next class will create a pattern library using some basic shapes. 4. Creating a Pattern Library: Now that you are ready with your supplies, next, Doug, creating patterns. There are a few basic shapes which you can combine differently to create numerous patterns. Straight lines, girls, leaves, settles, dot, circles, drop's, weight, coils, and triangles. Let's see how to create patterns. Will begin with a straight line. Draw the first thing that comes to your mind. And here is your first button. Now, let's try some variations. Draw a shape and fill it up with lines. Change the distance between the lines and their placement. Change the direction of the lines and combine them with dots. These are small tweaks, but they can help you to create varieties of Saturn's. Go ahead and try them. Next. Let's create some buttons with girls, ln x1 petals. I start with one of my favorite patterns. It's a set of curves alternating with analogous set. It's a simple pattern, but it looks good. You can fill in the innermost gold to give it some character. You can also bring in some variation to this button by putting dots on one of the curves. Dry creating variations of any pattern you create. Drawing LIF divided into half and fill each half differently. Try drawing other shapes within a nice gala. Some parts black leaves, some parts White. Each small tweak gives you a new butter. The rules to create buttons are the same with any shape. Vary the distance and size combined with differentiates, and use the black ink to fill up some shapes. Go ahead, get creative. Let's move to waves and coils. Weights are a great way to fill up an EMT. They are one of my favorites, as I do note, always like to fill up a space with blacking. Coils served the same purpose, but it's not a room. You can use the shape variable you want in borders or to fill up an empty space. Try combining big and small coils. You can use standard lives to create the smaller coils if you want. I have shared the baton practice worksheet in resources, downloaded and practice your own patterns. If you do not have access to a printer, take a plain sheet and practice. Use the shapes you like and create your own patterns. Now, let's move on to dots and circles. Don't some circles are my go to patterns for filling up the space. The created good balance of black and white and let you fill up the space and time. The rules for creating new patterns with dots and circles are the same as for other shapes. Varying the size, combining with other shapes and playing with the black filled-in spaces. The battles I'm using here are only for reference. You can, and you should try and create your own battles. If you do not like to practice using practice sheets, go ahead and create your own doodle. Whatever shapes and patterns you use there will become your pattern library. Let's move on to draw. Drops can be used to fill up narrow spaces and also to create borders. It's not to say that you cannot use them in any other part of a doo-doo. There are no news for doodling. Relax and create the combinations you like. Then use them where you want to. Also try inverting a draw. It will become a better. Then try filling it up. You'll win some simple shapes. Creating new patterns is easier than you think, and the rooms remained the same. Finally, let's look at triangles. Use the same rules of playing with the size, distance, and blacking to create new patterns. Once you finish practicing creative projects and the projects and resources section and upload your practice sheets. I would love to see them. Remember, nothing goes wrong with doodling. So try new shapes and combinations and create as many patterns as you like. Now that you have built your pattern library, let's search for some simple objects for your fusion due to see you in the next class. 5. Searching for Simple Objects: When creating fusion doodles, I prefer objects which are easy to draw. It keeps the doodle easy and fun and doesn't make it seem like a task. The sides, if the object is simple, it takes less time to draw. I prefer looking around me for ideas. From a paintbrush, do a tea bag, you append stand to Chile's. Anything can make way into my fusion. Do those. Chile's sounds interesting. To get more ideas AS google for Hill, I do it. Use different keywords like simple objects to draw or easy objects to draw and hit enter. At times, you may find the same situation from Google selected. And you will find many images of simple things. You can draw. From cups to an hour glass, to a tree, an umbrella, a feather, a diamond, and even a birthday gap. Your search will give you a number of options. If you like an object that needs some help to draw it, type how to draw the name of the object. And then step-by-step in the search window. Say you want to draw Feather type, how to draw feathers step-by-step and see, again, you may already get the same suggestion. So selective. You'll see that for most objects, you can find a series of images teaching you to draw them from scratch or draw them using some basic shapes of the scope for their looks interesting. Let's search for a fish. Enter the keywords and you can see that there are many images to help you draw a fish from scratch. You can also begin your search for the key words, step-by-step drawing. Say step-by-step drawing of a candy. Who it even shows you how to draw a candy in some simple steps. You can also search for an elephant. And here it is. A step-by-step guide to drawing an elephant. If you search more, you'll see that from a pain going to an ice cream, you can get how to draw pictures of most of the things. Here is a picture of how to draw a nice screen. You can also use the keywords, simple drawing to search for how to draw images. Let's search for a mustache. Here is a simple and Q2, Q1. And here is another. Try different keywords and help yourself. Once you find the object you want to draw your ready to start with your fusion do-do. If you already have an object in mind and know how to draw it, your loan ready to begin. Now that you have searched for and found the object you want to intro. See you in the next class. The stack with our fusion doodle there. 6. Creating the Fusion Doodle - 1: Let's begin with our fusion Duke. The start withdrawing a border. A border gives an illusion of a small space. Elsa white-space can appear quite intimidating when you have to think of filling it up. I'll speed up some parts of this video so that the video doesn't become too low. Our border is drawn. Now, let's draw our concrete object. I want to draw fish and I'll place it here. Why? Because you can place your object any pair you like. A little tip for drove officious. Whenever you draw fish, first draw the spine of the fish. Then draw the Fischer bounded. You can place no fish differently just by changing the direction of this file that I have drawn the fish and also reinforced the outline of the fish width. Then next, let's draw the eyes of the fish and doodle around it. Let's move on to the Feds. Since it's a dude, Luke, the fish doesn't have any type of vince V feel like drawing. You give it some character. Alkalis, something's bluff. Next, I'll doodle inside the remaining two things. You can see that I am drawing a simple pattern with curved lines. That's because it's the first thing that came to my mind. Draw any pattern you like. It need not be complex. Relaxin draw and it will look beautiful. And then here I have drawn some petals and I'm filling them up with lines and dots. I'll fill up the space between the pebbles with black so that the pebbles are more prominent. Next, I'll fill up the body of the fish and if you want, you can draw the same fusion Doodle as me. Or you can draw something you like. It's no duty. C you should go for, for table you want to create. The example here is only for your reference. In DC or drawing with me. You can use the pause button up the video to pause it as per your requirement and draw the patterns. You can see the time repainting the same shapes here, the slight variations play with black filled-in spaces, the width of the shapes, and something as simple as slant lines and don't. You can also change the bends while creating the patterns. The variation in the thickness of the lines will add to the beauty and character of your doodles. Here you can see that I'm drawing of wings and filling it up. Repetition of such a simple pattern gives character clear do look because of the contrast of white and black on the paper. Doodling is all about letting go, feel and judgment and drawing what you like. You do not need to worry about the final output. Just keep on drawing. Change your patterns and the directions in which you draw them. Whenever you feel like. That will be enough to create a unique and eye-catching during. Here, you can see that I'm filling up the lengthen with some curved lines with rounded ticks. See how it looks. I've added some dots inside the tail fin, and I'm also drawing some dots surrounded by semi-circles on the border of the tail fin. Next, I'll draw some water drops outside the fish's body and can then black. I feel the fishes flipping quite good. Now, I'll finally draw some small semi-circles on the working trucks. With that, my first object, that is the fish, is complete. Next, I'll draw a chimney here. Y, well, y now, let's draw a chimney and doodle inside it. I'm sure that would look like. I am using some basic shapes like elongated water drops, curves, spirals, and don'ts to doodle inside the chimney. I prefer using ten minutes to draw my patterns. That way the battles look more interdict. For yo Turtle. You're the best person to decide. By fish and Chile are now complete. This also completes the concrete objects. In the next video, we'll create the abstract patterns. 7. Creating the Fusion Doodle - 2: Let's begin with the abstract patterns for our fusion do-do. I'm drawing some lines above the objects because I want to place the abstract buttons and vertical blocks over Death. Note that the blocks are drawn. I blind to color the alternate blocks, black. I'm using a brush pen here. If you have fun, you can use it or else you can use a paint brush and black acrylic paint or even a sketch been. Anything works fine. Now, let's move over to the patterns. Can you see how I have created the pattern here? I create different battles in the remaining blocks in the same way. So let's start. Here. I'm drawing a leaf, but the pointed tip, I'll divide the leaf into half and each half differently. You can see that I am drawing the same patterns of petals here, but I colored the API around one set of petals black. While I'm leaving this one as-is. These small changes bring in distinct variations and patterns. See how simple patterns that slight variations make your doodle Loom could repeat your patterns and our Navier. If you make a mistake, either use the black pen to cover it all. Neither tells us. Johnson thought that once you finish your do-do, no-one will be able to point out that mistake. Even if they are unable to pointed out, it's okay. Mistakes shouldn't stop you from doodling. Now, let's quickly create battles in the remaining blocks. Here as my next pattern, one of my favorites, a flyer that the petals filled-in with small lines. It's a simple way to draw, but the plants look good. I'll alternate the flaws with small circles and dots. And you can see how it looks. Here I am again drawing some pointed leaves and filling them up with petals alternating the black areas and another row of petals. When creating a button, draw the first thing that comes to your mind. Even if you're repeating a Previous button, it's fine. I can tell you from my experience of doodling that no two patterns ever look for life. Even the newer repeating a pattern, you may already start getting ideas about how to fill up some parts differently. And that brings variety near Judas. Now that we have finished filling up the vertical blocks, I'm going to fill up this empty area with some vegan small dotes, dotes on my go-to patterns when I wish to fill up and India, but still want enough white space to be visible. Don't create a field balance of white and black and also help you to fill up in India when you do not want to draw any patterns there. You can see that my dots are not perfectly round, but that's okay. As long as you like what you are creating, it's fine. You're doodle doesn't need to be perfect. It only needs to make you happy. So, Doodle the doubt, fear. In the end. It will look good. I use the simplest patterns when creating this fusion doo-doo. I also went for much repetition of patterns. Still, it turned out to be different from all my other doodles. And unlike the weight turned out. So once you've finished creating your doodle, you'll have the satisfaction of creating something unique. Finally, our fusion doodle is complete. I hope you liked the experience of Duke link this way. And you will try to create different fusion doodles. Go ahead and explode this form of doodling, the cubic fun. In the next and final lesson, we'll have a little chat. 8.
