Are you interested in doodling but don't know what supplies you need? Actually, doodling doesn’t require a lot of supplies. Just a piece of paper and a pen or pencil. If you want to create real doodle art, you can add some more supplies. Here is a basic doodle supplies list.


1. Sketchbook, drawing book, sketch paper, drawing paper

You don’t need a specific medium to doodle on but if you want to organize your work and look back at it from time to time, I would recommend a sketchbook or drawing book.

  Canson Artist Series Universal Sketch Pad, 9

2. Pencil

A pencil is great for creating the first sketch of your doodle which comes into your mind. I would recommend a light pencil (HB grade) so you can erase it easily if you want to make changes to your doodle.

  Dixon Ticonderoga Wood-Cased #2 HB Pencils, Box of 96, Yellow (13872)

3. Eraser

For removing unnecessary outlines of your doodle art or making changes to your doodle work you need an eraser. You can also make the edges softer using an eraser.

4. Drawing pen/Fine liner

A drawing pen/fine liner is used for drawing the outlines of your doodle sketch. You can use different thickness of the writing tip to your taste for refining and shading your doodle.

5. Marker

Markers serve to color in your doodle or to make the outer lines of your doodle thicker in order to create a contrast.

6. Colored Pencil

Instead of markers you can also use colored pencils to color in your doodle, thicken the outer lines or shade your doodle work.
