#165 Brainstorm by 365-DaysOfDoodles #165 Brainstorm by 365-DaysOfDoodles
"Brainstorm is the mulling over of ideas by one or more individuals in an attempt to devise or find a solution to a problem.

In this case all of us brainstorm at some point before starting an artwork. You should really consider the importance of planning your drawing. Theme, composition, characters, elements that will be drawn - all of this can be figured out before even taking your pencil. Regarding planning, Abraham Lincoln couldn't have put in a better way: "Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe."

This doodle is also ab
out the 2 sides of the mind that clash whenever we try to create something new. 

Left side is logic and analytic. Right side is creative and spontaneous.

This may sound a bit silly but, in other words, all of us have 2 personalities that guides our mind when creating. One, heritage of our childhood, is the Fool. He'll try aimlessly to create, he's audacious and adventurous. The other one arises from our maturation, it's the Judge. He'll criticize details and impose limits to whatever you're trying to create. The two of them will always be there and are useful in their own way. However, you can never put the Judge in front of the Fool. You must allow yourself to brainstorm and create wildly before settling down and paying attention to intricate details.

Each side of us has its own importance and it depends on us to balance them.

I think this is my favorite doodle of yours, so far. It's very encouraging (or idk, I've always put the judge before the fool and ended up never creating as I wished).. keep up the awesomeness~ good luck on the rest of the 365! ^.^

This is such an intense and accurate interpretation of what goes on in the head of an artist when they are about to attempt to translate what they see in their head into art. I also very much agree with your explanation of how the two sides of the artistic mind work, that's exactly the way it is!
