CSS Battle: #16 - Eye of the Tiger

In this article, I will solve a Eye of the Tiger CSS Challenge on CSS Battle. Let's look at the problem first.


We need to create the following container by using CSS Properties only:
Eye of the Tiger


So now look at the Solution and how we are going to achieve this.


<p c>
<p l>
<p r> 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • <p c> : Center Circle
  • <p l> : Left Triangle
  • <p r> : Right Triangle


* {
  margin: 0;
  background: #0b2429;

body {
  display: grid;
  place-items: center;

p { position: absolute }

[c] {
  width: 50;
  height: 50;
  border-radius: 1in;
  border: 45px solid #f3ac3c;
  box-shadow: 0 0 0 20px #0b2429, 
              0 0 0 30px #998235;
  z-index: 1;

[l], [r] {
  height: 160;
  width: 82;
  clip-path: polygon(0 50%, 100% 100%, 100% 0);
  background: #998235;

[l] { left: 58 }

[r] {
  right: 57;
  transform: scalex(-1);

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Note: In CSS Battle you can use 100 instead of 100px. You don't need to define px in CSS. However, if you are using rem or %, you need to pass them separately. That's why in the above CSS code there are no units mostly. For more info visit here

Minify the code or CSS by using any CSS Minifier. It helps you to reduce the characters in the code which will increase the score.

Minified Version:

<p c><p l><p r><style>*{margin:0;background:#0B2429}body{display:grid;place-items:center}p{position:absolute}[c]{width:50;height:50;border-radius:1in;border:45px solid #F3AC3C;box-shadow:0 0 0 20px #0B2429,0 0 0 30px #998235;z-index:1}[l],[r]{height:160;width:82;clip-path:polygon(0 50%,100% 100%,100% 0);background:#998235}[l]{left:58}[r]{right:57;transform:scalex(-1)}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

I tryed to do without clip-path, and with just one div, i almost hit it

Using pseudo classes is also good however its 99.9% match but Nice try.
