Digital doodle

For the final project in one of my classes, I had my students make a digital doodle illustration where they created an image in Illustrator, Photoshop, or Painter without a plan, just started with a mark or shape and then worked from there, letting the initial mark and subsequent reactive marks build up to a final image. I do this in demos quite often, especially in Illustrator because I'm demonstrating specific tools. When I demonstrate in Photoshop or Painter, I usually start out with a reference sketch. Above is my digital doodle demo that began with a light blue circle.
