One of the courses I signed up for has me creating doodles from a mark or emotion. It is really different and a lot of fun because the focus isn’t on doing art, but generating ideas and improving creativity.
Inspire & generate new creative ideas and improve your creative thinking with 50 easy to follow drawing & doodle exercises can be found at Udemy. It is created by Tatiana Ambrose.
In this course, she walks you through different simple but fast doodle and drawing exercises where you will be in charge of transforming each exercise into something more than useless scribbles, lines, shapes, etc. For example, she had me pick a letter that I liked then turn it into something so people could not recognize what it is. I chose the letter “R” and turned it into a lion and tree. That is the just of this course, taking something and making it unrecognizable.
Does It Work?
I have noticed that I do look at things a lot differently and I imagine that is definitely a key to creation.
