  • If I were to sell this at some sort of marketplace. Not that I have experience in that, but from the perspective of someone who has bought a few illustrations. Well first of all it would probably have to be vectorized and maybe it could also have a cleaned up raster version in png format with the background cut out. Any price would be too much just for a raw photo or a scan. And then I might call it something like: Wolf line drawing or Wolf doodle. Calling it a doodle might not work if the finalized form of it is too clean/doesn't look hand drawn.

  • Doodle usually means something that is kinda rough, which I think applies, assuming you don't make the lines any cleaner (like your avatar). But still, clean or not line drawing works in either case. If you were thinking you'd have a bundle of many animal drawings, then perhaps Animal line drawings or Animal doodles. It pays the be as specific as possible though so maybe adding Forest in the front would make sense, as long as you stick to forest animals.

  • @Vikas, I would say no. Even in here, it's a little too subjective and more to do with marketing than graphic design.

Cute drawing. I don't think you will be able to find a name of a style you can search for though.

The medium is pen or ink on paper, but that's not a style. One could move a pen around on paper in an infinite number of ways. How could we give them all names?

I know that feeling of doing several drawings and then suddenly make one that I feel has something special about it. But it can be hard to pinpoint exactly what it is. Is it the shape of the lines? The lines themselves? The shadowing? The colors? The motif?

I think what you are searching for is in fact your own personal style.

Every artist struggles to make something that is unique and personal. The challenge is to look at what others do and learn from that, but at the same time try to forget it again and zoom in on your own stuff and just draw from intuition.

  • Can't we call it doodle?

Unfortunately it's a small sample and black&white photo. I try to imagine it in color and shown as a part of some bigger image where it can belong to. The result:

enter image description here

I would call it "phone notebook scribble". But in this case the maker of the top right corner shape very likely can draw and invent something interesting to draw, no matter the lines look coarse.

  • You are not doing it justice. Why not print it in two Pantone colors, frame it and sell it as art?

    Of course it can be a piece of art. As I said, the maker can draw and invent something interesting to draw. My own creations are much closer to the rest of the notebook paper content as you have probably seen during the recent years.

  • @Wolff will people buy it? Anything we draw which is unique like this can be sold?

  • @Vikas, there's always a chance... I mean: JPG File Sells for $69 Million, as ‘NFT Mania’ Gathers Pace

  • @Joonas that image has years of efforts. Isn't it? Even if it weren't sold for $69 million, it still deserved to be sold. What I was asking that could this OP's individual image or any similar style art be sold easily or you first have to establish yourself and make a good platform to sell?
