Digital doodle

Digital doodle - student project

So this project started off as a way to loosen myself up drawing wise, I've always felt very stiff and ideas come rather slowly to me. So the starting doodling exercises really helped me and were a lot of fun for getting quick and random ideas on the page. 

But after some sketching and taking ideas from some drawings and bits of others I came up with this as my doodle.

From here I cleaned it up in Photoshop and cleaned up my lines in Illustrator, which I'm not entirely acquainted to but had fun with it none the less.

Then I decided the colour swatches and played around with the colour lines I wanted for the doodle. Finally deciding on this as a sort of print I suppose?

Thanks for the class Jon! Again I had a lot of fun and will try creating illustrations like this in the future
