This question led to a new package:
We have a
scsnowman package but we don't have a
ducks package, that's quite inexplicable since ducks are frequently used on TeX.SE (e.g., samcarter had to fall back on
phaistos package here).
I'm not an expert, nevertheless, I'd like to create a
tikzducks package, similar to
tikzpeople, but I need your help in order to create a customizable duck!
- I'd like to have a
duck, not something a bit like it (ducks with a human body are NOT accepted)
- wings are mandatory
- from the look of the duck, it should appear cleary that it was
created with LaTeX, not with other commercial tools.
Possible color-keys for the duck:
Possible optional add-ons:
- sport tools (e.g., cricket bat)
- male/female versions
- a seasonal version
- a Chinese version
- a cook version (not cooked version)
- a mathematician version.
As shown in Ulrike Fisher's answer,
tikzpeople package has a beak feature but it doesn't allow to change the body of the image, so we get a person with a beak (quite ugly).
Loopspace pointed out that there is already a
ducks package but it doesn't allow to change the style of the duck (like
tikzpeople does for people) and it is not yet present in CTAN.
Moreover, I'd like a style similar to this example of the seasonal version:
P.S. = consider this question as if it has always a bounty open!
