Daily Doodle : Tropical Turkey

Today's given Daily Doodle Thanksgiving turkey had a tropical theme. Not an easy thing to work out what to do really as I knew everyone was going to be drawing tropical shirts, drinks, beaches etc. Once again I opted to go in close rather than draw the entire turkey. I ended up settling on a Carmen Miranda (a Portuguese Brazilian samba singer, dancer, Broadway actress, and film star who was popular from the 1930s to the 1950s) styled fruit headress with a beach scen in the background. Artistic license was used due to the size of the turkey and the size of the fruit. One single pineapple would have been twice the size of the turkey's head so I had to scale down the frut to get the idea to work. It's only a bit of fun anyway.
