I haven’t tried doodling as much digitally. With ink and paper, you get more control over the lines, it’s partly a tactile thing. Some of the techniques do transfer to digital, but it’s definitely not as let-flow as pen and paper.
What can you find in this doodle? I see a bird, a teddy bear, and a hitchhiker.
It takes a lot of planning to even do a simple animation like this. I was, however, surprised that the filesize can stay fairly small (after I cut a couple of gradients, it dropped by ≈160 kibibytes).
If you look closely, the moving dirt isn’t synched with the flower as much as it should be, but I didn’t want to have to redo a bunch of things to fix it. I also forgot to add leaves to the stalk, but for a first try it’s okay.
Even for a short clip like this, I didn’t draw enough frames, so it looks a bit choppy, but it gets the idea across and it still looks okay enough.
I guess they could be tents of some kind, if not bells or buildings. The toppers aren’t meant to be round or flat necessarily, though the patterns suggest they aren’t as round as the rest of the things.
But mostly the colors. I look at the thumbnail and say, “Nice colors.”
