Starting on a new paleo critter, as the scroll project will take some time. Bill is looking into getting or making a UV light box. But that's for another post.
The sketch is from a horse by Zeng Shanqing-- very angry and wild looking. I love this piece.
I liked the posture, so I drew it as a seahorse (hippocampus to be precise). I'll probably tone down the anger. Don't need that wide a mouth. And naturally I added the tail.
