Jesus is the shepherd and we are sheep. But can I draw sheep enough distinct from other animals in the pasture?
My idea for sheep had been like this:
I think it is not so apart from what ordinary Japanese imagine, because this image comes from what I mocked the illustration tutorial for children when I was one.
Since sheep is not so widely held in Japanese farms, this image rather from Ariel of Zodiac.
I found most sheep as the farm animal(namely, lead by shepherd) don’t have so big horns. So I started to draw in this way.
Well, something is wrong…It seems like a horse head artificially embedded in the wooly body.
Horse, no, sheep is not a horse, but close to cattle.
Now I find the face of cattle is more triangular.
And it(sheep or cattle) has longer neck as I had imagined. To put an accent on the neck, the body should be a bit shortened.
This is my recent image of sheep.
