Horns

Here’s a little character I sketched using ball point pen, with a Col Erase Blue as a gesture to get rolling.  No real game plan here other than I wanted to draw something with really outrageous horns.  As the drawing progressed(or regressed:), I started to imagine that the horns themselves could be little sentient characters, perhaps indicators of the host’s mood. Maybe they’d stand at alert when alarmed, or pin themselves back when threatened, or even snap at each other in less active moments…who knows.  It’s fun to build a little story around a sketch sometimes to try and give it a little more depth.  This one’s in line for a redux, some anatomy and lighting I’d like to fix, but for now here’s something without any editing.
