Hi! My name is Aisha (pronounced EYE-sha).

On top of being a Mom to two super amazing tiny human beings (Jaida 9, John Arthur 3) I'm a graphic designer and instructional designer.

I went to school for graphic design and have been designing and creating all kinds of whatnots for well over 20 years. I love graphic design, but more importantly, I really LOVE that I get the weekly opportunity to bring my passion for design to the work I do AND earn a good living that helps support my family in the process.

It's fun and for that I am thankful.

Speaking of gratitude and things I love, about 12 years ago I was introduced into the world of mind mapping through a teacher at the time who I still to this day admire.

1. Introduction: Doodling is an art form that I've enjoyed my entire life. One of the reasons why I enjoy it so much is that it really unlocks my creativity and allows my imagination to just be free. Hi, my name is Aisha. I'm a graphic designer, content creator and mind mapping enthusiast based in Indiana. In today's class, I will share with you my process for creating a hand-drawn vectorize doodle icons. A few of the topics I'll cover are, the eight basic shapes that all Doodles have in common, ways to hone in on the creative process of doodling by using my mind mapping techniques to brainstorm ideas and anchor your doodles around one central thing. How to apply the principles of iconography design to push your everyday doodles to the next level, and so much more. By the end of this course, you'll be able to take your own vectorize doodle icons and share them with others or use them inside your own pieces of content. For this course, you don't need any previous drawing experience or skills. All you need is an iPad and Procreate to follow along with this class. Being able to have fun and showcase your own raw creativity isn't just for the pros. It's for everyone. So let's get started. I look forward to seeing you inside the class. 2. Tools to Get Started: So, there's two things you're going to want for this course. You're going to want an iPad and you're going to want some type of stylus to use. You can either use your fingers, which is how Steve Jobs intended, or you can use any type of stylus that you have. What I'll be using today is the Apple Pencil for this course. Now that we know what we need to get started, let's go ahead and begin. 3. Setting Up Procreate: All right. The one app that you want to use is Procreate. Procreate is where I go in to draw quite a bit of my doodles. We want to click this plus icon right here, and then I already have mapped out the size that I want, which is the six by six inch size. If you want, you can go ahead and create your own custom size so you just click on this plus. You can type in the dimensions as far as the pixels, the height, and so forth. You can go to inches, millimeters, centimeters, whichever one you want, but you can go in and go ahead and create something such as that. Here I click six inches, and then down here, I'll click six. That's going to tell me that we have a maximum above a 161 layers, a DPI of 300. I like to do 300 DPI because that allows me to be able to print the doodle if I so choose. That way it doesn't just remain vector art, and I can go in and I can title the canvas and everything. We'll go ahead and I'll click cancel since I already have one created that's that size and I'll add it here. The next thing I want to do, and we'll zoom out a little bit here, is I want to go into this tool icon and I want to go to the canvas area. I like to turn my drawing guides on when I doodle. As you can see, this gives me a nice little grid right here, and since my grid isn't exactly lined up, I like to click the edit drawing guide button. At this point, I'll click 129, and what that does is it moves the edges of the grid from corner of the page to the corner of the page. I'll click "Done", and then I can also change the opacity here. You can see it goes in and out from super bright to just very thin. I like to put it at about a 30 percent opacity. You can change the color here as well. You can make it more of a pink guide or a darker guide. I like somewhere in this turquoise color because then it's just basically nice and light, and in the background. I'm going to click done, and now I have my canvas all set up. 4. Custom Brushes + Basic Shapes: Now, that we have our page setup, the next thing that we'll want to do is go and determine our brush. We'll click the brush icon, and then I've got a couple of different brushes, and actually pens that I like to use to doodle. These pens are used for doodling. These are all available for you to download. I'll have a link in the area where links are shared. I'll just show you a little bit about them. But basically, it's a nice type of line. Even though I'm using an Apple pencil and there's all kinds of different variations that one can do, I like my lines to be just nice and curved, and tapered at the edges, and rounded, and everything. All of these are available for you to download the different types of pens that are mostly used for doodling. You'll be able to find those in the Skillshare course project files. I'm going to go ahead and go to the ten pen, which is a thicket spend that I have here. I'm going to write at the bottom, Basic Shapes. Now I'm going to go to a smaller pen that I have here for doodling. Some of the basic shapes that we'll be using in this course are shapes such as a circle, a square, a rectangle, a triangle, a line, a curved line, a dot, and oval. That right there are the fundamental shapes that we'll be using for anything that we create. The nice thing about doodling is that it doesn't have to be perfect. You basically are just simplifying complex objects and turning them into simple doodles based off a number of these basic fundamental shapes. 5. Lightbulb Doodle: The first doodle that we're going to make is one of my favorites. This is one that I use all the time, and it is simply how I express an idea. Universal icon for idea is a light bulb. Basically we are going to draw a line here. We're going to curve the bottom, another line going this way. The guides, the drawing guides and everything help me to be able to use symmetry when I draw my doodle icons, and then we're just going to curve it upward. Bring it back around. Connecting these two edges. Draw a line across and then basically just a super quick squiggle. Because I want my icon to look as organic and free and not stiff in any way.. Then I'm just going to draw a little curve at the bottom here to show that's the part that gets screwed in and then come up this way. Couple of lines and then always raise outward. This just basically drives home the fact that this is indeed a great idea. A light bulb and something that one needs to bring their attention to. There we have it, our light bulb. 6. Brain Doodle: Another way to show an idea and have it quickly come across is to draw a brain. I like to draw my brains as far as overhead and split in to two. I'm basically just finding the center of this page right now. Again, the guides helped me to see visually what it is that I'm going to do. I'm going to come down here, but stop about this way. I want to basically draw what ends up being an oval shape. But instead of making a guide or something with that on there, I'm going to keep that image in my mind, and I'm going to come across here, and I am going to slowly just draw almost like clouds. I am going to connect it just down here like that. I'm going to do roughly the same thing on the other side. I'm going to come down here, I'm going to have the two halves almost touching. I'm going to come and do roughly the same thing. Now, the cloud little ruffles and stuff don't have to match. It's fine that they don't because this is a doodle, and a doodle does not have to be perfect. Which is why I love doodle so much. Right now we've got this cloud oval shape. To really draw home the fact that this is indeed a brain, the next thing I'm going to do is, I'm going to use these little curves, and I'm going to go in and just make these little shapes like so to show that these are the folds of the brain. We've got like a shape such as this. I want to do the same thing on this side. I think something like that is good for a brain. There we have it, a brain. 7. Camera Doodle: Now, the camera is a fun thing to draw. There's all kinds of different ways to draw a camera, but I think the simplest and easiest way to draw a camera is, you want to take your pen and draw a large rectangle. This shows the body of the camera. We're going to go ahead and put the lens somewhere in the middle. We're going to have the flash be over here, which is basically just a cap on top. Then, we're going to have a couple of lines coming across this way to show that this is the grip of the camera. We can have a couple of lines upward like this to show that's the flash. To make it look a little bit more like a camera, we can also go in. We can draw a circle on the inside to just show that this is a lens. We can also go in and put a heart in the middle or something like that, which makes it just a little bit more fun. 8. Preparing a Theme: So far, we've been doing a lot of doodling via just kind of random icons, but let's bring it all together right now by doodling something more around a specific theme. When it comes to doodle icons and doodle sets, I always think it's best to try to do something around one particular theme or subject matter. Now, the subject matter that I have in mind are breakfast foods. For some reason, I have not been able to get breakfast foods out of my head [LAUGHTER]. Maybe I just need to go to a iHop or Starbucks or something like that and just eat some breakfast foods so that I can stop thinking about them. But since I am in a breakfast foods bonanza, let's call it that, we'll stick to that theme. So [LAUGHTER] in the next video, we're going to be talking about how to even start with a theme, how to decide on a theme, and how to basically line up the different types of icons that we want to have inside of our doodle icon set. So I'll see you in the next video. 9. Mind Mapping Your Icon Theme: Let's go ahead and begin, mind map. In order to choose a theme, one of the things I like to do is really mind map. I mentioned that I've been really on a breakfast cake lately, so that's what I'm going to do. However, what you need to do could be entirely different. A couple of things before we get into the wits here is, let's go ahead and click the plus icon, and I'm just going to do screen size, which is this right here for my mind map. That's going to open up a nice little mind map as far as guides and grids. Right now, I can care less about that because this is going to be super organic and basically a great way to get the ideas that I have in my head, about different types of breakfast food icons that I have. Let's talk about themes for a moment. One thing that you could choose , just looking around my apartment, is that you could pick something like technology. Technology is a great theme. There's all things that you could draw and doodle with technology. You could do an iPad, you could do a phone, you could do a laptop, a computer, a TV, what a play or video icon looks, a camera. There's just all things with technology, you could do, uploads and downloads and gamut of all different things. If that's not how you're feeling, you could go off the breakfast theme that I'm doing and do a food theme, where maybe you think of a refrigerator and all the things on your grocery list, so whatever your theme might be, or even a bathroom theme, there's soap, toothbrush, toothpaste. What do all those things look as far as when it comes to doodles? Moving on is, let's go ahead and get to mind mapping. Since I mentioned, a refrigerator, let's start with that. I'm going to click on here. I'm going to get my writing pen, I think I'm going to try maybe the five writing pen, five width. Going here, that looks like a good size. Naturally, you are going to make it just a little bit smaller. Because I want to be able to zoom into this nicely, and what I'm doing basically to get rid of when I draw something like this, and to get rid of those lines is, I'm just using two fingers. I use any two fingers I like this is a part in my Apple Pencil like this, I just go ahead and use my middle and ring finger to tap away and get rid of that, just in case, a little pro tip there. Let me go ahead and I'm going to draw my central image, and if you're not sure what I mean by all these terms, I'll try to explain them, but the best thing they do is really go into my mind mapping course. I've got a couple different ones, and you can go in and see what I'm talking about there. I'm going to zoom in a little bit, I'm going to draw a square, with rounded corners, and I'm going to put a line across here, a line up and down like such, and a line here, a line there, and I'm going to have another line over here. Maybe something like this and that. Looks awful, but hey, it's a doodle, and it's a quick mind map. Let's see if you can figure out what it is that I'm drawing here. It's a refrigerator and we're going to have some type of circular item over here. I've got my central image here. I always like to label my stuff. I'm going to go to you a little bit larger writing pen, and I am going to, let's see, we've got breakfast foods. Now, from all of the these different types of items, I'm only going to pick a few of each one, so I don't have to go hog wild, when it comes to my mapping and just getting ideas out. Anywhere from 3-5, maybe six different ideas is good. Let's just stick to 3-5 areas. Let's see, we could do grains. I was just thinking, cereal, cereals are really great breakfast item as well. We're going to title that one, Grains. Cinnamon rolls. Oh my gosh, so totally hungry. Let's look at this beautiful mind map that we've got here. Gosh, there's just so many different types of doodle icons that we can do. I'm going to go ahead and all draw this in, because I'm totally feeling it, and I'll see you in the next video. 10. Iconography Basics: Let's just talk about iconography basics for a couple of minutes. There's 10 I found iconography basics that are I think helpful to follow. The first one is that you want to keep your icons simple. You want to keep them simple, you uses few mark, strokes of lines, shapes as possible. I even prefer not using color at all until way down later in the process. In this course, we won't be discussing color or anything like that, because that's how important it is to focus on basically just either a white or a black icon, such as this here. The next thing you want to do is you want to make your icons recognizable. Easy to recognize icons help basically the reader, or the audience to understand exactly what's going on. The more understandable it is for the more parties involved, the better. When you think about something that's easily recognizable, think of a restroom. No matter where in the world you go, regardless of if you speak a language or not, you'll be able to separate the men's bathroom from the women's bathroom through a use of icons. That's how easy you want your icons to be. That's how recognizable they need to be. The third thing is to be sure to use basic shapes, squares, lines, circles, dots, squiggles, etc. Use those as much as possible. When you need to use different shapes, that's fine as well, but sticking to the basics just helps things be a lot easier. Because one of the things too is that psychologically, since these are some of the first shapes that people learn when they're just children, very small children, is that our brain needs less time to interpret them. The fourth point is to be consistent in your style. You want to use the same thickness, the same type of texture, the same type of basically lineally throughout all of your work for your icons. Then detail. Detail is definitely important. The larger the icon is the more detail you'll be able to use inside of it. The smaller it is the less detail you need to put into your icon design. For example, I've got two trash cans here. I've got a small one, which just has a couple of lines, very basic shapes to show that this is a trash or recycling bin. Then the larger icon to the right, it's got a little bit more definition, the lid has more of a handle, you can see the dense and the trashcan and so forth. Because it's a larger type of icon, I can do just that with it. The sixth point is symbolism. Symbolism is really cool, because you can use different types of metaphors, symbols, objects that represent the essence of the idea or the item that's being described. I love using light bulbs because they express ideas, things that you can't necessarily touch but you know that are there. When you can use symbolism such as a light bulb, or something similar that is congruent with the message, the better off and more easily recognizable your icons are going to be. The other point is contexts. Think about overall context, meaning the message being conveyed. An icon of a home has two different meanings depending on context. Here the icon on the left of a home is more of a navigation home. As far as this is where my home is located, this is the address. The doodle icon to the right is also home, but it's more of like a homepage and a home navigation type of a thing. Depending on context, your doodle icons will certainly have that much more meaningful to them. Of course, design, you always want to be thinking design. When conveying the overall message, determine which elements are most important and only include those details into your design. Perspective. Now there's all kinds of icons that you can use, that you can create, like drawing a square. You can either draw a flat square, or you can draw a square that has a 3D perspective like this one here inside of a box. I don't like using perspective so much. When I'm doing doodle icons, I think that it can take away from the flatness of a doodle icon, the elementary look of a doodle icon. However, what you choose to do is completely on you. It's just always think about perspective. If I use it, you'll see it in the next couple of classes to come for water, or something such as that, up to where I'll use just a little bit of perspective there just to give it a little touch of depth to help it be more clear and easily recognizable. Last but not least is type. Try to really avoid using type, fonts, any type of writing altogether inside of your icons, because they have the potential to really take away from the simplicity of the icon. In this case, when I'm showing something in such as writing or paper, I may do something as simple as having like a capital A and lowercase a. Then just a couple lines, literally just lines with a dot to show that this is a paper. This is a piece of writing as far as the icon is concerned. 11. Water Doodle: Looking at our original mind map for all the doodle icons and so forth, we're going to draw just a few of these in here. I'm actually going to draw water. We'll go ahead and go out to the gallery, and I've got a water doodle Canvas already to go. One of the things I like to do when creating doodle icons is I will have an image in my head. I'll even use like real life. I really like the shape of this cup, it's a nice water cup. I'm going to use this to actually have as stimulus for creating the doodle icon. I'm going to go up here and put this off to the side. Now in the last class that we created, one thing that I did was I talked about perspective. Like right now what I'm doing is I'm deciding how I want my lines to be, so I'm just going to draw this real rough sketch. I'm going to connect this line with that line, this line with that line, and this right here is the shape of my glass. I have a little bit of perspective here. Instead of it being like a completely flat icon and flat meaning zero perspective or no perspective. Instead what I'm going to do is I'm just going to give the illusion of just a little bit of perspective here, so I'm going to come down and I actually I'm going to draw a point here. Let's make it a little bit wider. We've got this line here, so I'm going to draw a point here, and then I'm going to come in from this line and I am going to draw a point here, and one about here and here as well. What these lines allow me to do is it allows me to decide exactly how do I want my cup shaped? I'd like to start with the top line and give it a little bit of a bend because that gives it a little bit of this shape. We're drawing this lip right here, which is all about a bend in perspective and then we're drawing this one, which bows down just a little bit. The dots help me to basically connect the dots. I'm going to start up here and draw a line down here. I'll redo it, and that's good. Even though it doesn't quite come out here, it'll be fine because I'll just move the dot in to here and then draw here. What I usually do when I'm trying to draw somewhat straight lines are that I'll start with my hand and my point up here but I will be looking actually down to the area in which I want to draw, so it's like looking at where I want to go instead of where I currently am. I'll do that, and that usually helps me to draw straighter lines. I'm going to come in now and I'm going to go ahead and erase these extra little bits right here. Let's go ahead and zoom in a bit. I don't mind it being a little wobbly right there because it is a doodle icon, and it's kind of a tall narrow glass, which I'm also fine with. Now one of the things that I don't plan on doing is I don't want to give this glass too much perspective. You see how inside of here there is an oval and then down here there's an oval as well. I'm not really wanting to do that as far as the perspective goes, instead I think just a little bit of a lip at the top bowing outward and a little bit of a lip for the glass at the bottom going outward is good as well. Now I'm going to go ahead and to show that this is actually water, I'm going to go in here and I'm just going to draw like a wave coming up. That way it's like this is like a wavy item in here and this is going to represent water. Now I'm just going to go to the Eraser tool and then just erase this little extra line that we've got coming outward and then go back to the pen tool. If you see me double tapping my Apple Pencil is because I have it set up to where it goes back from the eraser tool to the brush tool. I've got that here, and now I'm going to come in. I'm just going to change the size just a little bit. We've got it to where it's magnetic. Just going to make it a little bit smaller, and now I'm going to my 10 writing pen and write water underneath. There we have it. A doodle icon of water. 12. Masculine vs Feminine Shapes: we just finished up the Water Doodle Icon. I'm just going to put a check there. The next thing I'd like to draw actually is coffee. Before moving on to coffee, what I'd like to discuss is something that has to do with masculine versus feminine shapes. I think even though we're just drawing doodle icons, that it's incredibly important to address masculine versus feminine. When it comes to drawing shapes and doodles and icons that are universally known and recognizable. Let's just turn this off for a second, move it off to the side. Let's look at some masculine versus feminine shapes. We've got this nice tea cup here that a dear friend and co-worker of mine gave to me. I just want to take a minute to recognize the different shapes. Now this is what we will call more of a feminine type of shape. Feminine being that there's a lot of curves, it has this ruffling for the tram. It's just very dainty and beautiful, and of course the color as well the handle is overextended, so it makes for a really nice teacup. This right here is an example of a very feminine shape. Then we have other shapes such as this. This is a coffee mug that I also enjoy my collection, I like mugs by the way, I've got all mugs. Let's do a little bit of a contrast. Contrasting it with this shape right here, this one and I'm not even going to really address color right here, we're just talking about shapes. Of course, color is a whole new [inaudible] of masculine versus feminine. But besides the color, let's think about the shape. See how this one's very ruffled and dainty, and the tram, the handle is overextended. This is right here, less so. This one right here is more shaped to where there's a little bit of a curve, it comes in nice, the handle is curvy, but it's very functional and usable and everything. Then it's just a really nice, there's no ruffles. It's just a nice smooth shape. This would be more of a masculine or less of a feminine shape and have masculine qualities put in there. So masculine, what I mean by masculine is, you can think of feminine as in curvy when it comes to shapes and masculine as in things that are boxy in shape. They're more square, they're rectangular whereas the feminine is more oval in circle shapes that even if they're just partial, that are found so curvy lines and so forth versus straight lines. Let's look at this mason drinking glass. I use this as well. I really enjoy that it has a nice amount of masculine versus feminine shape. We've got the straight lines here, we've got the minimal curves it's almost like fits within a box or a rectangle very much. Then we have less of a curved mug type of a shape. Let's put this over here and get everything in frame. But we've got this shape right here and it is rather lovely as far as showing that more of a masculine type of shape. We've got that here. Then let's move on to this next shape right here. We've got a mug that is very masculine in size and shape. Masculine being it has only the curve of the rim, other than that, if I tilt it enough then you can see that it's a very flat shape, flat line and everything for that, squares down here. The only time that it even turns as far as moving into more of a feminine shape is with the bowing of the bottom. Other than that, there's a slight curve so that it's comfortable in your hand and there's not a harsh square shape. But other than that, it's very square. You would even call this almost neutral because there is a nice balance between the lines and the curve. It's more functional and in shape, it's not feminine, and it's also not super masculine as well. Let's move these off to the side and just take a look at this shape and the shape alone. I like this shape because I like to draw more of a neutral type of shape, more of playing on masculine and feminine as far as recognisability. For a coffee mug, I would actually use this instead of this shape when drawing a mug or a cup of coffee, when doodling a cup of coffee. Just because I will want something that is very contrasting to more of the very feminine shape, so completely on the opposite spectrum. This I would use for a tea cup doodle. When I show you how to draw a tea mug, I will be using this shape and when and showing you how to draw a coffee, I will be using more of the masculine neutral shape. It's just fun being able to play with stereotypes that are already in society and using them to push forward or push back on ideas and stereotypes and different things such as that to really show that this item is coffee and this item is easily tea because even though tea is drunk by hundreds of millions of men throughout all of the time, it's still seen as a more of a feminine type of drink, whereas coffee is more of a masculine drink, so it's just fun to play with all that. I just want to get that in there and let you know that even though we're just drawing real basic doodle shapes, there's all kind of things that you can do and be thinking about in the background. See you in the next class. 13. Coffee Doodle: Let's go ahead and dig into the coffee icon. As promised, I will actually be using this right here, this shape to draw the coffee icon from. What we're going to do is we are going to have this off to the side looking at it. Let's still get it on screen so you can see exactly what I am drawing. That looks good there. I'm going to go in, and I'm going to use half of this right here, the half of the page, and I'm just going to draw a line down the middle. We'll use the Apple pencil to draw and show an axis. But what I'm doing right now is the line represents the axis point because this is asymmetrical shape, or it is a bilateral symmetry. That means that each side is the same. This half is the same as this half and give me flipped over. That's what that means. I like to go ahead and think in lines and shapes. I got this Apple pencil down the middle to represent the middle of this mug and like I was showing you in the previous class that we did, as far as drawing water, I'm just going to put a dot here and let's actually make that a little bit. I think, three squares out is good and I'm going to count three squares over here, 1, 2, 3, put a dot there. I'm also going to estimate the size of this and I actually want it to be a bit more square in shape. I'm going to put it here. That's a fun part about drawing is that you can make it anything that you want. You can make it more square and I actually might, let's delete those, make it, bring it down one more line. Let's erase that get that over there. I guess I'll have more of a rectangle shape. But what I'm going to do now is, I am just going to point here. Look down at the second line. Point here, look down at this line. That was really wonky. That's good, I'm fine with that. There we go, that's better. Now what I'm going to do is I'm going to draw this line across here and it's really not a whole lot of line. But I'm just going to give it a little bit of a bow or a little bit of a bend. Then we've got this line here at the bottom. Let's just say this line it's shape, comes in one point, since that's how our grid is. This again why I like using a grid when drawing and I'm just going to make this like this and then have that part be very flat. Now that I've got all those shapes and stuff in mind, since this is a doodle icon, what I'm going to do is I'm actually going to clear out of this shape. I'm just going to go here and layers, I'm going to click, swipe over and click Clear. Now what I'm going to do is, I've got this shape right here cemented in my mind. When drawing doodle icons is that after a while, after you build up a library of shapes and lines and how things look, you can go in and start really just creating more like be like, oh, I remember the shape of that glass right there. I'm going to put this off to the side now, bent, I'm going to triple-click and get rid of that. Now what I'm going to do is, I am basically going to just know that I've got three points, which is six. I am going to draw 1, 2, 3 and then come down 1, 2, 3. Then I'm going to come down here and just draw until maybe here and then come back over here and then draw something over there. Then now I'm going to basically just draw this down like that, show all that down like this, and then just use a nice flat line. Even though I have that other shape in mind, this is a little bit different, but it just helps me to where I can even go in and more draw it in one type of line. We'll just come down, go back to the pencil tool, not eraser pencil tool and get this to look more organic and fluid and its shape. Got to love doodle icons. This is where practice comes in with just getting used to drawing doddle icons and stuff that looks a lot better on the second round. Remember that we've got this shape over here. I'm actually going to put the mug, this line on this side so, I can just flip it and have this come out over a little bit. I don't want to draw the exact shape of that. I want to create my own mug. So, I'm just going to, and I actually like the bow on this. I like that shape. I also like this shape as well. I'm going to do something in-between there and create something that looks like more of this and then comes down. That right there and I'm going to make it obvious that you can put your hand through there by drawing a double line. Now I am going to just come through, make this shape just a little bit smaller, put it about, right here and I want to come down just a bit. Because what I'm going to do next is go back to my pen tool and to show that this is coffee, I'm going to have a couple curvy lines moving up. Just to show that this is hot coffee. Let's go back to the 10 and write down here, coffee C-O-F-F-E-E. That right there is my coffee doodle. It's fun to be able to go in and just create all different shapes and stuff. We've got that. 14. Tea Doodle: We've got this one checked off, coffee checked off. Now let's go ahead and move on to, I actually want to do tea. Let's move on to that. Go to gallery. I've got a tea doodle Canvas already set up. Let's grab the black, it's going to brush. I'm going to use the five pen and go from there. I'm going to use this right here as my muse because I think it's a really pretty cup, and it's a really pretty tea cup. I'm going to use this as my muse. I'm going to put this one off to the side and start drawing from there. Let's see. We've got the nice rippling on top. Let's see. Ripple and I think that's good. I'm not being exact and I'm basically just eyeballing but I'm eyeballing the symmetry, but I am keeping all of these things in mind as far as the lines and shapes of my tea cup. All of this stuff is in my mind and not actually like drawn down or anything like that. Let's see. I want it to be nice and pretty, so I'm going to come in. It's going to be very feminine and curvy. I think I'll have it maybe ending about here. I got my hat nicely in the way. We've got that, looks almost like a flower now that I think of it. Let's just get rid of those lines altogether. I think that it's so pretty in that, it really makes me think of a tulip almost to where it's just dainty. I like that. We need to give it a nice little curve here at the bottom. Now what I'm looking at? I'm looking at this shape. I see how it goes out this way. It's a nice little quick turn and then a nice little base for that pedal stool. Basically that little flower pedal stool to sit on. Now I'm going to go ahead and draw that line as well. I'm going to flare it out, do my own thing and then come in and give it a nice curve on the bottom, like so. We've got this handle. This handle is really cool because it's nice and exaggerated. It's very narrow and different than the other mugs. This almost goes straight up and down like that almost. We're going to come in. I'm going to just eyeball it. I'm not trying to make it because I really want to keep the doodle, cone shape and now overthink it. I think the coffee doodle, that a bit over thought out. With this, I just want to keep my lines nice and loose. I like my handles being on the right-hand side because I'm right-handed. I'm just going to draw it in like that and then come up here. Give it a nice little go tuck with a thick spot right in here. I think that is a nice little doodle and I could have it like so, to show that. That's where it starts to like, "Well, am I add in too many lines to it? Am I not using enough?" I'm actually going to instead use a different type of line. Let's use three fingers to get that back. Instead, I am going to really show that this is tea. I'm going to come down here and I'm going to have a little tea bag, like a little label coming down here. I'm even going to go up here and I'm going to make this good, 10 point writing tool. I'm going to do this steam. But instead of having it in a five-point, I wanted it to be in the 10 because I want it to be showing that this is nice and thick. Notice I'm not putting any word or anything in here. Again, that's all about iconography basics. I don't want to turn this into an illustration and put lines and words and stuff in here because I think that just muddies the whole thing. Because I've been sticking to the style of writing what this is below, we'll go ahead and do that here. I'm going to center this up because I do like things nice and up and do. I'm just going to move it over into the middle and then move this down just a little bit lower. Those two things sit nicely with one another. There we go. We've got our tea cup doodle. 15. Egg Doodle: Okay, so we just finished up T icon, so let's double-click and check that off the list. I'm going to skip juice and milk, getting a little bored with beverages, so let's take a look here at the entire mind-map and see what else we can jump in. Let's try jumping in something on this side we've got grains, dairy, and meats. Let's go with yellow and eggs, I want to do eggs next. So we'll go over to gallery and look at that, I already have a canvas ready to go for drawing an egg. All right, so let's get my palette. I'm going to use the five writing pen and come over here. I think that we can safely say that we all know what an egg looks like. Unfortunately, I need to go to grocery store, so I don't have an egg on me. I'll just draw them out like this. Let's actually move to 10 point for this illustration. An egg is basically look something like this. It looks like an oval. It might be a little bit more pointy as far as the tip, a little fatter at the bottom. Maybe something like that looks more like an egg, but when it comes to doodle icons and drawing something that is universally recognizable without any context, this basically just looks like an oval. So that's where coming into and thinking about playing on stereotypes in a positive way really comes in handy. For example, we wanted to draw a poached egg, we could draw something such as this to where we've got a little pedestal for the egg to sit in, and then we go and we draw the egg, give it a nice pointy top. We draw something like that, that would actually look a little bit more like an egg. It also looks like an egg corn. I know egg corn isn't that, but it's egg corn, but not a corn, that looks closer to an egg. But what I like to do when really driving home that this indeed is an egg, and I'll use my five writing pen, is I like to do more of a sunny side up egg, so I like to draw it with a nice yolk, and then some type of squiggle surrounding, and then connect those two. That's what I like to do when I draw an egg, so I think that it basically makes sense as far as, let's draw right under here, egg. I think it makes sense when it comes to just showing the simplicity that, this is indeed an egg and a doodle icon of an egg. Regardless, you might decide that you like just the pointed oval shape and you can do that for your doodle. You might decide that you like a poached egg or something like that. You can do that as well. You can do all kinds of things to show that you like eggs. But for me, this doodle right here shows egg. 16. Cheese Doodle: Let's go ahead and dive into dairy just a bit. I think the next thing that I'm going to choose right here is cheese, because cheese is delicious. Let's go ahead and go here. Let's go to cheese doodle. Just want to check my brushes. Let's go ahead and do the five writing pen and dive in. There's so many different types of cheese. You have like sprinkled cheese, what my kids call sprinkled cheese, which is also known as shredded cheese. You can buy a wheel of cheese, you can buy a sandwich slices of cheese, you can buy a chunk of cheese. There's all kinds of different cheese that you can purchase. What I'm going to draw here and that I have found to be super recognizable is a square. Let's go ahead and draw a square right here. There we go. If you look inside my refrigerator, you'll notice that I have like sizes of like monster cheese and this is pretty much what it looks like. However, this right here just says square. It does not say cheese. Then we move on to drawing more of an iconic type of cheese. Swiss cheese is incredibly recognizable. Whenever you are drawing cheese as a doodle or as an icon, I highly suggest putting circles inside of it. Maybe even some off to the side here, maybe even a larger piece over here. Then you can just go ahead and go to the eraser tool and just erase out of these spots right here. Now it's starting to look more like cheese. We're going to reiterate that this is indeed a type of Swiss cheese. I will just draw another circle right here. I think that this pretty much, for the most part says cheese. I might even put a little notch down here as well, and then just erase out of there. Now I've got a doodle icon of cheese. No doodle icon is complete without the name underneath cheese. It's as simple as that. 17. Yogurt Doodle: Let's go ahead and start in on yogurt. So, yogurt. How to draw yogurt. Oh, I just happen to have some, I guess you could call it, I don't know why I'm shaking this. I'm not planning on drinking it right now, but maybe not quite yogurt, but certainly Kefir. If you notice the shape, I'll turn it like this so it fits in the frame nicely. It's a nice shape. If I were to draw something such as this, it would look more like, let's see, let's start at the bottom. Let's get in the pen mode. I do 1, 2, 3, lines and then I'd have it curve upward. We'll put it over here, so you can see what it looks like in comparison. Let's get a little bit more on frame. I do three lines up or three lines over. There we go. Then let's see, I'd want to do a curve line in. This will come up here, oops, and I would do a curve line in, and then something like this. This is really rough as far as the look of it. I wouldn't have to necessarily do this shape right here. I mean, I certainly could just to give it a little bit more definition I suppose. But I think it would also be fine with me just be a little perspective here, maybe a little perspective here. Something such as this. There we go, that looks better. Then a line across the top. Of course, this will be more curved because I'd want to show that this is certainly a nice curve line, and maybe even curve it in this way. Instead of a doodle that's looking more like a sketch-doodle, let's just say that. As far as drawing the blueberries, I could do something like that. I could even have this come across here and do a little bit of artistic expression, as far as quotes. Maybe even have blueberries. I guess I could have a blueberry here and a blueberry there and one here, and then I've got a leaf. But even that it's hard to tell still, exactly what it is. I could even go in and decide, I'm going to change this from being blueberry yogurt to more of a strawberry. A strawberry would be a simple shape as appointed but rounded, top or bottom, and then more flat along here. Then I could do a stem, and then a leaf. This would show more strawberry. Then I could even go in. Let's go to a thicker pen and I could do a couple of dots. Now this really starts to look like strawberry yogurt, I guess. But it could also look like strawberry milk. With shapes like this, this is where things get a little bit more difficult and I'm going to move this off to this side. We'll get this line back up, where I like my iPad to be. I'm just going to go in and I'm going to clear this entire thing. But keep in mind as far as what this looks like, it's a nice bottle shape, but it's hard to tell that this is indeed yogurt, even if I write under here yogurt, because certainly writing yogurt underneath helps the viewer to be able to go, "Oh, this is a bottle of yogurt," but what happens when that's not there? What is this? So doodles need to be able to stand on their own as far as recognizability. I'm going to go into here, I'm just going to slide across, clear this entire layer and go back to my five writing pen. I'm going to instead,try a couple different other things. I could do something like a bowl and then have it to where it's like this and I could have it, even though yogurt doesn't really come up like that, cream cheese might. Then I could even have a spoon in here. Now this is instead looking like, let's see if you can see this as well. It doesn't look like yogurt, instead, this looks like rice. I mean, literally this looks like a bowl of rice. The way that I like to eat my rice is more like this, with chopsticks. Something like this would certainly be rice. Let's go ahead and we'll just make it easy. Clear out of here. Let's go back to my writing pen. I don't have a cup of yogurt on me, like the little you'll play yogurt or something like that. But I do know what the shape looks like. It's more of a curved rectangular type of shape with a nice flat type of top. Then I could also have this come across and show something like this. Then maybe even put a spoon and show a spoon. I'd have it look more or like a stick type of a thing. But, I could even have a label on here. A label as in something simple like this. This could certainly be in the direction of yogurt. But exactly how do you draw yogurt to where it's recognizable? The best thing to do I think is, to try a couple of different things and see what works best. I like that shape that we had with the little cup of yogurt mixed with maybe the Kefir yogurt that I had on hand. What I'm going to do now is I think that a shape such as, let's see, to show yogurt. Maybe a shape like this and then, let's see. Let's cut this off over here. I think something like this might work. I like having a label on it. To show any type of label, is basically just showing a piece of paper like two lines like that is nice. I really like that strawberry that I did earlier, so I'm going to draw another strawberry down here, and we'll do a stem. Again, since this is a smaller cup, we'll do a little less detail. Then I'll put the stem off to the side like this, and then a couple of dots within to show and I can have the line, but that almost puts way too much attention to the strawberry. Instead, I want the attention to be on both the cup and the strawberry as well. I could have something like that. I could even put a couple of lines across here just to show that this is indeed some type of lead. I think something like this, could easily show yogurt. Now I can't spell. Then let's just move this over. This right here is what I'm going to go with as far as yogurt. Now, some things you'll have to determine what works best for you. You might look at this and be like Aisher, I like the shape that you had when you used something like this far better than your little yogurt cup, or I like a different shape. That's perfectly fine. Somethings are more debatable, so you will have to decide what works the best for you. But for me, this works great. 18. Toast Doodle: We just finished up yogurt, let us move on to grains. Toast. Let us do toast next. We will go here. I have got a toast doodle canvas, almost ready to go. Let us get that drawing guide on. I change this just in case you forget to 30 percent roughly and this is 129 for a six by six inch size. Then we'll just click "Done". Make sure I'm using black and a five-point writing pen. We are doing toast. Toast, I don't know what it is about toast but I love toast and I like drawing toast just because I think it is pretty simple. I'm going to draw a piece of toast like this. It is basically a square or rectangle, type a bottom. Then now I am basically, since I have two squares over here and then two over there, what I'm doing is I am going to basically draw split bread and so I'm drawing from here and then from this point, I'm doing something as asymmetrical as or not asymmetrical but as symmetrical as I desire. Then what would be a piece of toast without some butter. For me, this right here is toast. I'm going to go here and I'm going to write toast underneath. You can even if you wanted to take your doodle and select it and then, that's not what I am wanting, and then move it around. Let's get this handle and I'm just going to turn the toast like such, I'm going to raise it up here and I'm going to call that toast. 19. Cereal Doodle: Let's zoom in and take a look at this. Now we both have left for the grains, cereal and oatmeal based on this mind-map. Now, however, I draw it, oatmeal and cereal are pretty much going to look like the same doodle. Instead of drawing both of things, what I am going to do is, I'm just going to pick cereal and that's what I'm going to focus on next. I'll go to my gallery, go over here to cereal doodle, and remember how we are drawing yogurt, we'll pretty much, that's how I'm going to draw cereal. Cereal is fun because you can basically just put cereal in a bowl. Let's draw the bowl first and this is going to be a nice type of not deep, but nice shallow type bowl. Now just connect it there. The pedestal is going to be small, and then I am going to have a nice heaping bowl of something inside of here, and I am going to put a spoon in here. I'm going to make it a rounded tip type of a spoon, and then you notice how I have it sticking in here. To really dive down to the point that this is indeed cereal, is that I'm going to put this little line over here to show; this is like a thick hearty cereal slash could be oatmeal, could be any number of things. Let's make this a lot smaller as far as size and I want to increase the brush opacity so we don't get that weird gray line that's in there. Now I have a nice bowl, and to go back to my 10 point tool and write cereal underneath there. I was just working on my handwriting. There we go. That my friends is how you draw cereal doodle icon. 20. Apple Doodle: I don't have an apple on me, but an apple pretty much if we were going to go by more realistic, they have this basic shape. At least the apples that I bought at the grocery store a couple of days ago. Then they have a little stem coming out and maybe even a leaf. This right here instead of, for me, instead of saying apple, it says more like plum. I think this would be a great plum even though it looks like an apple. Instead, I'd like to do something a little bit more like it looks less like an apple realistic apple, but more like an apple. What I mean by that, is that it's more of this shape where it's like a heart, and then there's like a nice bottom and then a heart that comes up this way. That's how I like to draw my apples. I'm going to put the stem off to the side and then I'm going to, because I think all apples should have a nice little leaf showing, look how fresh this apple is. I picked it right off the tree. Then of course we finish up with apple. That my friends is how I draw a doodle of an apple. 21. Banana Doodle: Next up is banana. Let me go ahead and go to my gallery, open up my banana doodle. Because I like drawing from real life objects. I've got this nice overripe banana right here, this is what I'm going to draw from. I like to use this nice curvature, let's get it in screen.I like to use this nice shape, almost appointing is here, move it around and give it a nice stem. Let's put that off to the side and start drawing. Let's get that nice curve going. That right there just basically shows this part of the banana. That point where it starts to come up here and around, and then right there. Then we're going to put the stem up here. I like to almost draw it as one piece if I can, then come around. We want it to be a nice, healthy, thick banana with like pointed type of pointed but blunt edge that comes right here when drawing the banana. Then now to really draw home because this almost looks like a weird looking hot dog. To really drive the point of this picture indeed being a banana, what I am going to do is I'm actually going to draw one of these lines. There's a couple of different lines along the axis of a banana. So we've got a couple of different ones like here's one, here's one, here's one. I'm basically just going to draw a line along the bottom to show that this is indeed a banana and may even cap off this. I might just leave that open and call it a day. 22. Bacon Doodle: Now bacon is a little bit trickier as far as drawing it, because it's how do you draw something and iterate that it is what it is. How do you draw something more universal? How I draw a bacon is more like this. I like to use like a wavy line, one that will get a nice long piece and then connect it over here. Then just basically do the same type of waviness over here, and it doesn't have to be perfect. Just follow along with the idea that I've got. This starts to show a nice wavy line. Then to really recognize, this is where you look at the actual item. If we looked at a piece of bacon, it wouldn't be wavy like this, it will be more flat and a long square shape and then it would have marbled fat inside of it. But sometimes that's where it's like we're not trying to draw reality, we're just trying to draw something that looks real. That's where I go in and make this more of like a Turkey bacon. If you've ever eaten Turkey bacon, you know exactly what I mean as far as we've got things and lines inside the bacon, it's almost just like this strike type of a thing. I am following along with the same type of lines that I have inside of here, so it looks nice and wavy. Then I am going to go to my 10 point and title this, bacon. 23. Sausage Doodle: All right. Next up is sausage. I think sausage is definitely worth drawing. There's all kinds of way you can draw sausage. You could do sausage links, looking like something like this, and maybe you draw two of them and they're moving this way. You certainly could do something like that. I prefer to draw my sausage in more of a cartoon type of a way, much like the apple was more of a cartoon type of drawing. For sausage, I like to draw it almost the same type of a shape as a banana but more balloon like.I like to draw it like this. To really iterate that this is indeed sausage, I'll go and put little caps or a little crown on each end, to show that this is indeed the casing of the sausage. 24. Ham Doodle: All right. Last but not least, let's do ham. Ham could be a nice type of oval, a circular type of oval above. You could show it to where it's like that bone-in ham. You could draw something like that. This right here my friends, is how we draw ham. But for me this doesn't really look like a ham. It looks like it could be an avocado with a small seed in a really fat type of belly. It also looks like it could be a strange-looking egg. It looks like it could be the strange shape of a dinosaur. For me this is not say ham. Instead, what says ham is this. That is something that is, again, more of a cartoon character of itself. I like to draw something like this to where you get that more of a bone-in ham piece. We'll put a little bit of perspective with it and then we do the bone. This is how I pretty much like to draw my chunks of ham because I think this looks definitely, if you see this doodle, you're going to think, that looks like some ham right there that I want to eat. 25. Pancakes Doodle: All right, so we've got quite a few of these doodles already done. I think we've got 12 so far, so let's finish up with moving onto suites. Let's go with pancakes. All right, so I like to draw my pancakes in a very particular way. What I'll do is when I doodle them, is that I will draw a tight oval like such and then I will come down here and I will basically put more light partial ovals on top of ovals. It doesn't really matter if it is super put together or not. It could just be like something like this, to where it's very obvious that you've got a stack of something here. Then because pancakes wouldn't be pancakes without butter, I like to draw, let's go ahead and scooch in a bit. But I like to draw like a nice pat of butter on here and it looks like I've got an extra mark down there. Then, I'll even draw syrup on my pancakes because I like lots and lots of syrup. I'll just do kind of like wavy towards like our [inaudible] , get some really good drips. I'll even maybe draw a nice drip going down this way, have it come up, maybe even another drip that comes along here and then wraps up like that. Then you can go ahead and erase out of here. Let's do smaller, erase and zoom in a bit. Because we really want to show that these are indeed pancakes with butter and sweet delicious sticky syrup on top, hopefully some homemade maple syrup. Let's go ahead and erase these lines as well because we don't want any lines coming in between us and our pancakes. At least not coming in between me and my pancakes. We'll just round this one out down here just a little bit. Here we go. We got some pancakes. 26. Doughnut Doodle: Last but not least definitely, lets finish off our icons with doughnut. Let's go ahead and dig in here. Now, as we all know, doughnuts are delicious. Doughnuts are nice and round. I like to draw the doughnut hole and that helps me to determine its thickness. I want this to be a nice round type of cake doughnut. We've got that here. Let's go ahead and zoom into it. Because we can, let's go ahead and put like a yummy delicious type of syrup and frosting over this doodle or on top of this doughnut. Then what's a doughnut without sprinkles? You notice I am drawing my sprinkles. All kinds of different ways to show that these things landed on here, and then I'm going to put some sprinkles, some circular sprinkles in there as well because I think it should be nice and looks super, super delicious. Then we're going to wrap it up by going to the ten point tool and type in brightened down here, doughnut. 27. Putting It All Together: We've drawn a ton of different types of icons, breakfast icons, all that good stuff. Now what? Now what do we do? What we're going to do next is put it altogether. Not sure why singing was needed, but let's go with it. Let's put everything together. 28. Creating a Collection of Icons: A good question from here is, what's next? We've got a nice collection of Doodle icon's going on. We've got a total of, let's see, 19 doodle icons. What is next? I think the next thing here, is putting all of this together in one spot. What we can do, is we can go ahead and go to the plus icon. Let's get a new canvas size going. Let's switch it to inches. I'm going to go with something as simple as 14 inches by 8.5. What would be considered a legal size in the United States? So that's what size I'm going to go with here. The maximum layer is also important for us to look at, so we have 46 maximum layers in the DPI of 300. I'm going to go create, and now from here, I'm going to go into my icon tool. I want to turn on my drawing guide, and I definitely want to adjust it. Let's go down to 30 percent, that seemed to be working previously, and the grid size is really thick and clunky. I want it to be a lot smaller, so I'm going to type in 55 and I can always change it later depending on what it is that I'm wanting. I'm going to click done and now we have our page all set up. This page is going to be really good for receiving all of our additional icons that we've created. We're going to go back here to gallery, and we'll start with doughnut. What we're going to do here, is I'm just going to click this selection icon, and now I'm going to use my three fingers. Any three fingers you like, to basically just select this and to swipe down with three fingers. What I want to do is actually this one, I want copy. So I want to copy this background, and then go back to gallery. Go to my art board that I just created, and use my three fingers again to swipe down, and now I'm going to go to paste. Now we've got the doughnut, and it's already set up for, we want it to be uniform or I want it to be uniform, that way if I move my hand around different ways, it's not going to resize the proportions and everything are going to stay nice. What I'm doing here, is I'm basically using my grid size, I'll select off, I'm going to zoom in. Now with my grid size here, I'm using this as the top and the bottom for deciding, okay, as far as the size. I'm using the text and my handwriting as a form of resizing everything. I'm going to go by the D as far as getting the top of the D and the bottom of the D, instead of the H for getting the size just right, and I'm going to go in here to my layers tool. It's currently titled layer 1, I want to rename it to doughnut. Good deal. I'm going to just leave that hanging right there. I'm going to go back to my gallery, and I'm going to move on to the next item and then just go through the whole list. I've got pancakes here, I'm going to use my three fingers again. Copy, gallery, go back here and paste. Let's just zoom in, because what I want to do is instead of having it to where everything's a different size, like this is bigger than this, I want all of these to be uniform, because that's going to help my line art, and the doodles, and everything I've created here to be uniform. Creating like writing the names of the object down below it, actually helps in the long run to be able to put everything together into one place and resize stuff. I want to make this, and since this is the tallest letter that I have here, I want to make this pancakes fit nicely within this space, and then we're done with that. So I've got that here and I'll go rename to pancakes, and so this is what I'm going to do with all of these items here. What I have here is I've got four different doodle icons, and instead of using my grid space, let's see if we can, there we go. So instead of using the height of my grid space for the top of the letters that I have here, instead I'm going to edit my drawing guide to where, let's just zoom in, a bit on here. Instead what I wanted to do is I actually want to use the A as my top and bottom height. So just mess with that right there and oops, it looks like I got a white in there, so let's just change it back to that turquoise color and click "Done" for now. What this does is it just allows it to be a little bit tighter, because pretty much my A's are very consistent. Some of the other letters are a little bit taller, or maybe a little bit thicker, or whatever, and this just adds for another element of precision when putting it together. Of course, you do not have to be this in at all, yeah you do not have to be this particular at all. I just find that it helps with uniformity, and giving it a little bit more of a professional feel to it. Since we don't have an A in here, we're going to use the N, and the O, and the U, to determine what our height might be. So that looks good. I've got all the different doodle icons that I've created into one page, and there's 15 of them. So right now, I'm not liking having a landscape, instead, I want more of a vertical type of layout. An easy fix in Procreate, and this is one of the many reasons I love Procreate, is that you can go in afterwards and crop and resize your page, so you are absolutely not stuck at all. What I can do here, is I can mess with the rotation, which I'm not going to do. I can make it to where instead it's 8.5 by 14, which seems to be, I think a better size for what I'm looking for. Yeah, that just cropped everything out, so let's not do that. As to not cut anything off, I'm just going to come in here and resize it this way and it doesn't have to be 8.5 by 14. Since this is just going to remain digital, it doesn't really matter what size it is. Basically, I'm just going to come in here and eyeball it, and that was a quote, I'm going to come in here and eyeball what size I'm wanting. I'm leaving a bit of room up here at the top, because I'm wanting to actually have some words at the top. So we go in here, I'm going to create a new layer, we'll just drag this all the way up to the top, and we'll rename this T-I-T-L-E, title. Now I'm going to go in here, going to go to my 10 writing pen and just write exactly what this is. Maybe I'm actually not wanting something so thick let's go down to a six. Now what we have here, is basically a nice page of everything that we've created for our breakfast doodle icons. I think something like this layout just makes everything look really nice, and makes it look presentable and put together. 29. Procreate to Vector on iPad: Having all of our doodle icons in one place is certainly nice. What's also nice is being able to vectorize our files. What we're going to do in order to do that is we're going to go to gallery, and I'm going to pick any one of these doodle icons. I am really liking the doughnut doodle, so we're going to start with this one. For this process is really nice because you don't need an iPad or, you do need an iPad but you don't need a computer or Adobe Illustrator at all to be able to vectorize your file. When I say vector, what I mean is being able to make this too where it's completely scalable, has a nice transparent background. It can be made super small to light fit on the size of a stamp, or be blown up all the way to fit on a poster, even turned this into a t-shirt, so that's what I mean by vectorizing. The first steps that we will want to do is, once we have the file that we want to vectorize selected, which is this, will go into our layers file. What we're going to do next is we're just going to uncheck the background color. What this does is it makes it to where, now we have a nice transparent background, that we are working with the artwork and the artwork only. Once the background layer is turned off, we'll go up here to this wrench icon, select it. We want to make sure that we are in the share, and I'll just use the pencil, but we want to make sure that we're in the share section of our actions panel. Then we'll go to PNG. This just goes ahead and exports the image. Next thing we want to do is we want to save image. So the next thing after we do this is that now that is exported, we want to go ahead and basically go to Adobe capture. So once Adobe captures open, the next thing that we'll do, is we'll go to into our camera mode. We'll click here this icon right here of a camera, and will go up to our camera or our images. We want to click camera roll, because that's where the image that we just saved from procreate is in. We'll go ahead and go to all photos, I'll click the doughnut, and now we're already in this file. We want to make sure that we're not on some other layers like materials or anything, we want to stay on the shapes layer. Then what we're going to work with here is this slider. You can see if I move all the way down, it basically just outlines the art, and if I move all the way up, it adjust and changes it. I'm going to go and because what I'm looking at here and not sure if you can see this rule well or not, but I'm definitely don't want it to be an outline. I don't want it to be up all the way, I'm wanting it to be a nice smoothness, so I'm just going to click right there. This is completely based on your preferences as far as what you like, but I am now going to select the check icon. From here, Adobe capture allows you to edit your artwork even further through refine, crop, or smooth. What I'm going to do here is I'm going to click smooth. I'm just going to zoom in a bit, so we can see the image and artwork a little bit, and we can see that the artwork, it's the smooth, it's turned off. We're going to go ahead and turn it on. Let's toggle back and forth, so you can see the differences. You see how the doughnut when I drew is a bit wobbly. Now here is just a little bit more smoothed out, gives it a nice little shaping and everything, even like the letters as far as what I wrote out, it just smooths them out nicely. I actually liked this smooth icon on, so I'm going to just go ahead and click Save. Now I can go ahead and rename this shape, and I'm just going to title it, Doughnut and Doodle, and click save. Once saved, Adobe capture opens your library file, and you can click on these three little dots, to adjust the artwork. I'm going to click that and I'm going to go to Export As, and I want to make sure that I export this image right here of the doughnut as an SVG file. Now if you're not sure what SVG stands for, it stands for scalable vector graphics. This is exactly what we want, because we want to turn this doughnut doodle, that was hand-drawn into a vector image. We're going to select SVG, and now I can save this to my files. From here I can save to my iPad, I can save to my Google Drive, and I can save the image where ever I so much want. I'm just going to click Save. Basically that's it when it comes to turning this into a vectorized image. Now I can go into Google Drive and I can save, or I can send the document to anyone that I'm wanting as an SVG file. 30. Class Project: All right, so that pretty much wraps up the course for you. The next step is class project. What I'd like you to do is create six doodle icons, your choice. You can either base them around a theme, with a mind map that we did earlier or you can just pick random items here and there, it's really up to you. But I'd like you to go ahead and do that, and upload your doodle icons into the class project part of this course. Also, if your feeling so adventurous for a little bit of, let's call it ''Extra credit'', I'd like you to take maybe one or two of those doodle icons that you create and practice vectorizing them through Adobe Capture. That pretty much sums up your class project. I look forward to seeing your doodles. 31. Thank You: Thank you so much for taking this course. I really enjoyed creating it and walking you through my process. If you'd like to take more classes by myself, by me, there's a couple things that you can do, you can go into Skillshare and you can search for my name, Aisha Borel, or if you want to take more classes about mind-mapping and so forth, I've got quite a few courses out there. Thanks a lot for taking this course. Please don't forget to leave a review. The reviews that you leave really help me to make my next courses and even this course even better.
