Take That Doodle Further

Most of my doodles are done on the iPad now. But at a recent meeting, yours truly felt compelled to to do this doodle... and yes, I was listening. ;)

I've taken pictures of my paintings and transformed them using art apps. I've done this with photos too. I thought about what I could do to this doodle. 

To transform this doodle, I used the Procreate, Layout and Enlight apps on my iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil. However, you can use these apps on other devices, and with a stylus, or your finger!

Here I opened image in the Procreate app and isolate the target doodle by coloring around it. I wanted to use a greenish-gray shade.

I cropped the photo to prepare it for mirroring. I used Enlight to crop this photo, but you can use any app. 

I used the Layout app to mirror the image.

I widened the eyes in the Enlight app using the reshaping tool.

The Procreate app is great for coloring. I tried a couple of different ways to color in the face.

Using the Enlight app, I reshaped the image a bit more and applied some filters.

I can go in so many different directions with this doodle, which is what I love about digital art. 

Here's a little slideshow of the transformation.

Whether you doodle on paper or on your digital device, there are so many options. It's a transformative experience. I suggest you try it!

Yours truly,
