OK, so I'll be starting a new drawing series, the theme being "Realistic Yellowstone Animals" prompted by my grandparents' trip to Yellowstone and all the pictures they sent back. The first is this, the Bighorn Sheep, AKA Wild Ram.

Next add the groove lines in his horns. This part is a bit more challenging, but don't worry, you can take your time. I've fond that if I get frustrated with a drawing its better to just walk away for awhile andcome back later rather than pushing yourself and having it end up in the bottom of a trash can.
