I'm also participating in Show Your Face this week.


Here is another sketch of a tadjik markhor goat.  I saw this fellow during a recent visit to the Los Angeles Zoo and I was fascinated by his horns.  I'd like to give them to one of my Gothic maidens, but first I think I'd like to do a study of the animal itself.  This is based on one of the photographs I took while visiting the L.A. Zoo.  I'm going to decide between this one and the other one...  Markhors are listed as endangered due to people hunting them for their horns, I hope their situation improves.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in April.  This is day 22.  

This is a rough sketch.

Both pieces are great! We humans can be so devastating to the animals in our world. I fear what Karma may fall on us at some point in time.
