Just Keep Swimming;with Jellyfish Doodles

April 12, 2018

Marie Browning here with some fun and easy doodles. These cute jelly fish are easy to draw and loads of fun to make jelly-fishy tags!  Enjoy these doodles by following the steps to create the Jellyfish Doodles for your planners, journals, tags and cards!   

I use products from Tombow to create the Jellyfish Doodles, and as their signature Designer, I receive all these products to play with. This coloring method uses Tombow’s wonderful new MONO Drawing Pens and TwinTone Markers!

Step 1: Sketch the Doodles

I used mix media paper, but this method works on a wide variety of journal papers and cardstock. For the first step, use a 3H or 4H MONO Drawing Pencil to sketch out your doodle. Use a light touch when sketching to avoid denting your paper.


Step 2: Ink the Doodle

Use the MONO Drawing Pen 05 and outline the doodle and any main parts with this thicker pen tip.


Step 3: Continue inking

Use the finer tips of the 03 and 01 MONO Drawing Pens for the details such as the eyes. At this time, erase the pencil marks. I like to use the MONO Light Eraser or the medium sized MONO Eraser, white.


Step 4: Add TwinTone Color

Add the TwinTone colors by adding a line of color in each part of the doodle. I used colors from the Bright TwinTone Set . 


Step 5: Blend the color

With a brush and water, blend the TwinTone colors. Be careful not to over blend – you may still see the original line of color and that’s okay, it gives the doodle more interest. Leave two little uncolored white dots on the jellyfish to give him some sparkle. Let dry completely.


Step 6: Add the Details

With the extra fine tips of the TwinTone Markers, add more interest by adding details to your Jellyfish Doodles. It’s these fine colored details that really add fun elements to your doodles.

Fun sayings can be added with the Drawing Pens and the Fudenosuke Brush Pens. Learn how to do Modern Brush Lettering using these Fudenosuke Lettering worksheets from Tombow USA
