Hey crafters! I’m going to show you how to turn any doodle into a digital illustration masterpiece. It’s simple, easy and very useful! You can use these illustrations to create a logo, make art or spruce up a website or presentation!
Create your artwork on white printer paper. When making your doodle. remember, black silhouettes work best. Try to limit detail as much as possible, and don’t use any colors.
Download the Adobe Capture app on your phone. Using the built-in camera, take a picture of your artwork. Make sure to adjust the slider for the best possible image. For more help, here is a video by Adobe Creative Cloud explaining Adobe CC!
Crop your image and turn on “smoothing.” You can now use your artwork in Adobe Illustrator by sending it directly to your Adobe account. If you do not have adobe or prefer to use something else. You can mail the artwork to yourself and edit the image with any app your heart desires. My Microsoft Surface Pro has an app called “Paint 3D.” I love it!
Export your art and let the magic happen… 😉 “Clean up” the artwork, if you would like. If you’re using, Adobe Illustrator, Try selecting your object with the Direct Selection tool and adjust the shape using the Curvature Tool.
Now, select your artwork and open the Properties panel (Windows → Properties). Here you can add Fill Color, Stroke and more effects. Get creative with your design , be adventurous, and most importantly, have fun!
Remember to save your art. Feel free to print it out and frame it! Maybe you’ll even share it on social media! After all, it is your masterpiece. 🙂 I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial. Feel free to follow me on Instagram for more of my art projects: @hugsnqueso!
