Project Description

  • Think of an animal to doodle - try to avoid common household creatures - think of something more interesting or bizarre that will be fun to doodle. An anteater for example.
  • Draw some simple shapes to create the form of the animal in your mind
  • Turn those shapes into a solid outline that will form your animal
  • Use simple shading to give the animal a sense of depth - don't overdo it!
  • Add some simple background features to give your doodle some context
  • Don't forget to upload a photograph of your finished doodle to the class project area!
