Constellations -water colour, black ink and white gel pen.
Far too often, we buy into what society makes us think is beautiful, and it can restrict us from finding and expressing who we are, for the fear of being judged, fear of being alone, or a fear of rejection. 
We don’t look at a dirt field and say it looks its best without its flowers, or the night sky without its stars, or a cheetah without its spots, or a zebra without its stripes. 
The same should be said for humans. We are born mostly as empty canvases. Tattoos, bruises, scars, cuts, marks, burns, pimples etc become unique to us and recount a story of learning through experience, memories of hardship and good times. They should be as treasured  as stars in the sky.

Late Instar Common Mormon Butterfly Caterpillar (Papilio polytes, Papilionidae)

Many animals have conspicuous eye-like spots on their body. In most animals these ‘eyespots’ are thought to intimidate predators from attacking or deflect the predator strikes away from vulnerable body parts. That ‘eyespots’ could help prey by resembling the eyes of a predator’s own enemies is thought to be particularly true for butterfly and moth caterpillars. Eyespot caterpillars are often cited to be snake mimics that startle attacking birds which mistake them for dangerous snakes. Despite widespread acceptance, this phenomena is surprisingly understudied.

Current acrylics practice. I haven’t added either nails or chains to the painting so far, so you get the draft too, to see what I intend to do with it later. ^^ Having my fun, but no idea what I’m doing.

And any suggestion for the color and texture of the horns?
