Another iPad Doodle

I am really, REALLY enjoying using this technology for doodling.

It is a fantastic fit for the way I like to draw.....(and change my mind, erase, and draw again) over and over.  I don't plan to take photos along the way with every drawing, but I thought this might be a good addition to my tutorials page. To better create a "visual" of the way I develop each of my doodles for those who come here seeking that info. 
Whether I draw digitally, or use plain old paper and pen, my process is the same. I draw the basic outline of my subject matter, break the drawing into smaller shapes and simply fill them in with pattern.
For this fish, creating smaller areas within the tail and fins, placing arced lines to better define the shape of the body and head gave me lots of opportunity to place many different patterns.
Some patterns make sense (note the "scales") most do not...polka dots, checks and stripes for instance....but they all work wonderfully together to create a fun drawing

here you see the beginning outline paired with the end result


and here is a look at all the steps to get there


and finally.....a quick video so you can "watch" it come to life
