HOW WE WILL CREATE OUR CUSTOM SELECTBOX USING CCS3?
To create a select box we simply use the html5 document to create our markup for the select box. We will create three different select boxes using the "select" element and the "option" element for creating dropdown lists.
To hide the default styling from the select element applied by the browser we will use the css3 appearance property and set its value to none. And then, we will use an another useful rule to hide the default arrows applied by Internet explorer 10; from the select box dropdown.
THREE DIFFERENT METHODS THAT WE WILL BE USING
Each select box will be using a different method for styling the dropdown arrow inside the combobox.
- The first Method will show using an Image Background technique to create custom arrow for the CSS select box.
- The second method will use the CSS border property to create a triangular shape that will be used to customize your select element's dropdown arrow.
- Finally, the third method will use the fontawesome glyphicon to create our custom arrow for the selectbox dropdown.
All, the method will have the cross-browser support for our custom css3 select box. Each method ensures that it works properly in the Internet explorer 10 or above and other older browser.

Dont be afraid to try until you get it right. This method is really simple, but requires practice and observation. So, sit back and relax. Learn how to draw animals from the farm and start your journey on a good note!
Lets try s few basic characters to get started! :)
A cute turkey to begin with.
In this first tutorial, you can learn how to draw a fun turkey mostly made from small rectangles and large circular shapes. The posture of the character is really interesting. Not only is it easier to draw than a front version, but its also easier to add some perspective (as we can see with the legs). The fact that we just need to draw one wing is also interesting.
Most of these cartoon animals are not filled with complex textures or digital effects. In this case, the subject is filled with plain colors and only a few basic details (inside the tail) were added.
A nice turtle also from a side view.
