    It may be a good idea and to your advantage to see what these famous artists and entertainers like if you know their style you may use it in your designs. Google also advises on the Doodle 4 Google pages that students can look at some of the previous entries that they have received to get a general idea of what you need to do to be among the best of the best.

    This should only be a guideline for Doodle 4 Google artists; they don’t want something that has already been designed. They are looking for something fresh!
