also people should keep in mind that sometimes when an artist says “doodle" what they mean is "stress-free art”. that doesn’t necessarily mean that the “doodle” they made is something that they didn’t work hard at or didn’t spend a long time on. some people get really out of control when they see impressive works and the artist write “just a doodle” and they think, this is it, this is the end, im no longer going to be an artist, how can i possibly compare myself.
sometimes “just a doodle” means “not working on commissions or something work-based”, so don’t fret yourselves. plus not everyone who posts art plans on a bunch of people seeing it. you don’t really expect your stupid poorly written artist caption to be seen by a lot of people via reblogs,
I for real did not know this… And I think most people don’t either… Because, you know, most people take words for what they really mean by definition…
but keep in mind, for an artist, that is a “doodle” by definition. for someone who spends their job AS an artist, drawing something personal IS just a “doodle”, even if it comes out as impressive. its not like someone just turns off their talent, you know? it can be disheartening to see someone draw something easily and be referred to as “just a sketch” or “just a doodle”, but you’re also not seeing the years of hard work through skill, study and practice to reach that level!
its okay. thats why i made the post in the first place to help other artists understand that kind of awareness.

After 6 years of using this program I finally figured this out, so I decided to share the technique. IDK, it sure beats the “Use brush with no pen pressure to make a dot” type of thing.
The use of the vector layer comes with other nifty things like:
- No decrease in quality while transforming
- No 500px size limit
- Playing with line thickness and distortion
So, I hope this comes in handy to a few of you!
You can make a Hexagon by using the Line Tool instead and turning the canvas 4 times each click. I’m sure you can do other things, but I haven’t figured those out yet.
