Another great one. I love seeing the animals we think of as more humble really dressed up this way.

Lovely work. I like goats and this one looks a lot like our 'Bill'. Sheep have freaky eyes much like this too!

Really love the lines in this one. Looks very professional. :) I really like the line that defines the goat, it looks so smooth. I also think the colours that you've used on goat himself are very awesome.

Ohh the background colours, ohh... The goat looks very lifelike, too. The symbols around him... what do they mean? I can guess a few, but I´d really like to know :)

Most of the symbols are from my own shamanic path that I walk. :)

Well I am a shamanist, working with totems is second nature to me.
Plus I'm working on a totem Oracle Deck at the moment (similar to tarot).

I've always admired Goat, though I never had him as a totem.

Lovely work, and freaky pupils. :D

Thank you.
And they really do have freaky pupils, don't they!

yeah! X3 I always wondered why, too. I only really saw froggies with those pupils before I saw the goaty eyes.

He seems so serious. Or indignant. Either way, I love how much detail you put into these.
