"Cooter"--First goat sketch
Yesterday I did a quick sketch of my goat in my sketchbook with a Zig pen from a photo I had made and loaded onto my pc. He was laying in a twist. The proportion is a little off, because I did it in a hurry and wasn't really focusing on every little detail, but I thought I did okay for a first attempt on sketching a goat. Please ignore the "to do" list in the corner. ;)
He is mostly white with black around his face, chest, and legs, and he has yellow eyes with pupils that look like black dashes, and a light pink nose. His beard is long and part white, part black.
We've only had Cooter a few weeks. He was thrown in with a deal for a donkey, a horse, and a pony. The four of them go around together like the 4 musketeers. He hasn't let us pet him yet, but he will eventually. Animals take patience and you have to let them come to you. He loves apples, carrots, and caramel cookies.
I've always liked goats, and I fell for Cooter the first time I saw him. He has so much personality! He makes me laugh every time I see him. His best friend is the donkey, Doris, and together they are hilarious.
I'm sure there will be more sketches of Cooter and the gang, and hopefully they will be better. In the meantime I thought I'd share this quick sketch with you. Hope Cooter and I made you smile! :)
