I'm about 80% of the way done with this particular doodle.
In continuation with my older Christmas-themed doodle, I thought it would be fun to re-visit the idea of themed doodles. In that way, I can still have my nonsensical approach, but I also have a context to tie everything together.
This doodle, named night world (My 5-year-old niece came up with that!!!) was inspired from a lack of sleep. I've been experiencing troubles falling asleep as of late, and got sick of staring at my ceiling and playing gameboy. (which I firmly suggest you NOT do if you want to sleep) I decided that if I'm not going to sleep, I might as well make use of my time and do something at least semi-productive. That's how this doodle began.
For the most part, I've only worked on this doodle when about to go to bed, or when tired. I've tried to keep a loose night theme to it, hence the clouds, stars, and random moons here and there. I wish I would have thrown an owl in, but I didn't want it to take up too much space with details. I finally decided to bust out more than one color in a doodle--a welcome addition. I like having some tonal variation here and there. The markers I used are Staedtler tripuls fineliners. They have great crisp lines and are really thin!
I'll post a scanned version of the completed doodle sometime in the future. Until then, enjoy!
For those that are interested, here are some of my other doodles, as well as the completed piece (the last one):
