A doodle a day – Day Thirty
A tiger and his shadow
So today is the finale of my ’A Doodle A Day For 30 Days‘ series. This will be my final doodle in this series, however I will be concluding it tomorrow with a summation of what I have learned, enjoyed, not enjoyed and what it has inspired me to do, so don’t forget to head back tomorrow to find out the results. But for now here is today’s doodle.
Seeing as I have created a lot of characters in the past and over the last few weeks I wanted my final doodle to be a character, as it is definitely something I have enjoyed doing. I wanted it to have a unique body shape that can be used to create different characters in the future all based around this template. I created a short stocky box like shape with the only protruding features being the arms and ears, making it easy to replicate down the line. I decided to make today’s doodle into an angry tiger and reused some of the features from the ’Octopussy‘ doodle you might have seen on day twenty three.
A bright orange colour and black stripes along with the whiskers and sharp claws defining the animalistic features. I added a little tail in there and some white belly fur for some more detail before finishing the character off with a little shadow and highlights. To complete the overall doodle I then used different shades of green in order to make a wall, a floor and a skirting board before adding the tigers shadow behind him.
Overall a great little character to add to my collection and you never know even though a doodle a day is finished you might see some more characters based on today’s doodle pop up front time to time.
Thanks for taking the time to read todays doodle.
