I decided to change our plans a bit and share a spiffed up flashback doodle for this week's Caturday Art. I was going to share the first doodle in our new winter series today, but then I decided I'd go ahead and share a Valentine's Day doodle from last year for this Caturday before Valentine's Day. I didn't scribble up any new Valentine doodles this year. Like I mentioned yesterday, Valentine's Day really just isn't my favorite holiday. Also, I was too excited to work on our newest series of winter doodles to stop and scribble up any Valentine doodles. So, anyway, today and tomorrow we'll share flashback Valentine's Day doodles from last year in order to be a tad bit festive.
Now, let's start with the plain and simple doodle we shared last Valentine's Day, which was this one here:
Why was this the doodle we scribbled up for Valentine's Day last year? Because at our house, mancat Toby has always had a huge crush on pup Astrid. Whether Astrid wants it or not, Toby showers her with all sorts of love. He rubs on her, he licks her, and if she tries to get away, he chases her and then loves on her some more. That's why we're sharing this flashback doodle of the cute couple in honor of Valentine's Day tomorrow. What's more, we found some fun effects to apply to it for today's pre-Valentine's Day Caturday Art Blog Hop. So, let's share those other versions of this doodle now.
We'll start with some simple filters I found to apply to the Valentine's Day doodle. I don't do much digital art, so I went a bit wild experimenting, but at the same time the alterations are certainly nothing fancy whatsoever.
Next up, we found some animated effects to apply to this Valentine. Want to see them?
How about this flashy one?
And how about another flashy one?
On Monday, we'll share the first doodle in our newest series. As I mentioned a couple times this past week, our newest series is going to include somewhat gothic winter doodles. These were inspired by a similar series of doodles I scribbled up last year, and which we've been sharing as flashback doodles. I've really been enjoying creating this newer version of them, as they're of a style I really enjoy drawing.
Anyway. Happy Caturday! And happy Valentine's Day weekend!
