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.
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
