You know you are an artist – by heart, we all are! However, you have not yet attempted to get a pencil and a paper to start making sketches.
It’s either you have nothing to draw your inspiration on or you do not know how to start.
Regardless of your reason, this website will give you the encouragement and the materials you need toward becoming a pencil artist and designer.
How to Start
You need a pencil and paper – plus the enthusiasm to begin. More important, you must prepare yourself to draw dots, lines and simple shapes. So do a few like these.
You know these basic design elements, right? If you thought about making stunning yet complicated patterns and designs already, well, save your excitement on these.
It is important that you refresh – and enhance – your skills in creating dots and lines. At first, you may think this is not necessary but you must remember that everything starts with dots and lines. As you progress, you will realize how amazing these dots and lines, including shapes and angles, can help you compose art pieces. Likewise, practicing your hand in drawing dots and lines will make your lines perfect and your hands stable. Once you have mastered these, let’s start with easy patterns and designs to draw.
Simple Doodle Art for Beginners
You can doodle. Get a pen and a paper and draw lines, shapes or any form that comes to mind. But never underestimate this activity because this benefits inspiring artists like you as it contributes toward improving your visual literacy and in processing your ideas.
As a beginner, enjoy making effortless doodles that mix lines, shapes and dots and you’ll realize that you have become too engaged with your work and that you already come up with amazing patterns.
You can find some samples to copy here. Then prepare to get creative and make your own art.

this time, your hands are already skillful. You are ready to take on new
challenges. What about your heart and
mind? Surely, you are already motivated to hone your artistic skills so
don’t let it wane. Continue drawing.

Move forward with your learning and level up your creativity up a notch higher and use these patterns in quilt designs, textiles, rugs, carpets, fashion fabrics, knitting, cross-stitch, wood carving, tapestry and anything else you can think of.
