Youlikes

This drawing and animation website has its origins in Ratemydoodles.com where you can still see a lot of doodle art as animated clips. Youlikes is more fully fledged with an improved drawing program. You can create frame by frame animations of your drawing and also edit someone else’s drawing to create your own versions. This collaborative site is fairly new, but its novelty is animated doodling.

Doodle Art

BoxDoodle

doodling websites

When you land on this website, don’t forget to scroll sideways. You will understand what the instructions say when they write that you have to rearrange a box and make any kind of figure or object. The drawing tool gives you options of pen size and color choice to create doodles on the cardboard cutout. BoxDoodle forces you to think ‘inside the box’.

When it comes to doodling, all you really need is pencil (or pen) and paper. Doodling works best when your mind starts to wander. Well, you know what I am talking about. We have all been there. Let these eight websites help you out with a bit of doodling. Who knows, the coming 11th February and the National Doodle Day (UK) could see you helping people whose lives are affected by epilepsy and neurofibromatosis. Just another way doodling is helping out.

    That is great. I have been looking for websites that offer these doodle services. Would really like to draw and save it for later use or display it for my friends to see.

    Saikat, this is right on time. Since I started using the Noteshelf app on my iPad, I’ve been thinking about finding some doodling resources to get back into drawing—which I did a lot of in high school. I think it could be a relaxing activity. Thanks for writing this.

      You are welcome, Bakari. I also used to do a lot of doodling in high school. If I had known about mind maps then, I would have probably made better use of my thought doodles!
