Get ready for an earphone Doodle-storm! |TIP108

We all know about Brainstorming. I was thinking about making a “Doodle-Storm”. Try, and send me yours !


It’s a real pleasure to get absorbed by the “Doodle-Storm” session – Drawing some free form of an Earphone. I didn’t give myself a time limit (I had the whole night in front of me). However, my aim was filling the full canvas of Sketchbook Pro before I fall asleep on my Wacom screen tablet Cintiq 22.

To avoid distraction (Facebook, Twitter, Emails…), I plug some
earphone in my ears and watch a movie while drawing. I realized that I could get more productive and creative that way linking pleasure of drawing with pleasure of watching a comedy.


00:26 I am sketching on Sketchbook Pro
00:32 Many Designers love that software
00:37 It’s light, and reproduce a natural feel of a pencil
00:47 Sketch your first lines with a light pressure
00:54 Then, bold the lines with more confidence
01:10 Vary the size of your sketches
01:50 Fill the blank space of sketches
02:14 Train your vision, drawing in multiple views
02:28 Press Ctrl-Z (Undo) to explore different lines
02:34 Add a POP of colour
02:40 To direct the viewer eye through the board
03:01 Music from, India

I invite you to take a pen, traditional or digital and make a try !
It’s fun.

If the sketching methods I’ve acquired aid me in my life and in my career, I believe that they can also help you to learn, and help you with your projects. Whether Design is a job or a hobby it doesn’t matter, so long as you do what is important to you.

      Ahah, it’s very simple. It’s the setting by default of the pencil tool. I draw the earphones with Sketchbook Pro, not Photoshop. 🙂

    Great video! What settings do you use for the pencil tool? Do you change the pencil thickness yourself or is it just the pressure sensitivity settings?
