    what do you doodle most often?

    what do you doodle most often?

    I was doodling again today and it occurred to me I always doodle this particular thing and I was wondering if it was specific to me or somewhat universal.

    horses.. i dunno why but horses are what inspire me most to draw, i love horses, and their movements fascinate and inspire me to draw them often.

    Heads, mainly, but also detached features, hands, torsos, gesture drawings of complete figures... those are probably the most common ones, and thus constitute the majority of my 'warm-up' sketches.

    Stick figures (static, and in motion), mainly, or just random abstract arrangements of curves and lines. Kind of like a warm-up if I want to draw something bigger. I like to just sit and scribble for a bit

    aah so it's just me ...

    I tend to always draw an angry expression on a man's face, ------ a 45-ish old man. Starts with the eyebrows, eyes, then the grimace...

    I dunno, maybe it's my way of stress relief... therapeutic probably.

    Everyday people. They're getting more everyday every day. Duh. That's not a bad thing, just me getting to know the world a little bit better. Everyday people are the weirdest breed there is.

    heads mostly...its like I almost have to fight not to start drawing a face or head when I put pencil/stylus to paper/tablet to doodle. Originally I forced myself to draw lots of heads to get better at it, but it seems I can't shut off the valve. I've become disproportionatly better at drawing faces than the rest of figure...time to start studying something else!!

    Weird stuff. Dragons putting their heads into glass bottles and that sorta stuff. Or elves on speed or the weirdest way possible to draw a barbarian or werewolf. Mostly it looks like something a 60's artist would put together in LSD heaven.

    Random circles in perspective, which turn into random mechanical doodles. That and heads consist of my "warmup" type drawings.

    some horribly malformed figure whose proportions look like something out of a childs nightmare...or random doodles of a tribal meets victorian style kind of thing that never turns out quit the way I want/expect it too.
