Scooby-Doo using Python Turtle

Scooby-Doo using Python Turtle

You must have watched the famous cartoon ‘Scooby-Doo‘. Would it not be great, if we were able to draw its character Scooby-Doo using Python Turtle?

In today’s article, we will do exactly that. Yes, we will draw ‘Scooby-Doo’ using Python Turtle.

Python turtle provides several methods using which we can draw almost anything. Today, we will be drawing a little complicated picture, so it might take some time to follow along and do it yourself. But, I assure you, it will be worth it.

We will start to draw from the bottom. First, we will draw its legs, then its belly, and then its face. For your understanding, an explanation has been provided for each part of the code as comments. But, I would suggest you run the program after every few lines to better observe how it is working. Just remember to put turtle.done() at the end, before running.

Without wasting any more time, let’s jump into the code now

Python Code to draw Scooby-Doo using Turtle

import turtle
#creating a new turtle object and assigning it to t

#setting the background color
turtle.bgcolor('#B97507')

#creating turtle objects and assigning it to t1 and t2
t1 = turtle.Turtle()
t2 = turtle.Turtle()

#keeping the fasted speed for now, you can keep the speed as needed
#'fastest' : 0
#'fast' : 10
#'normal' : 6
#'slow' : 3
#'slowest' : 1

t1.speed(0)

#setting the size of pen to 3 
t1.pensize(3)
