Kavad 4.8 – distraction

The planned image for the third decan of libra is "a warrior with the body of a monkey and the head of a horse with a bow and a quiver of golden arrows, standing in the forest."
I had no idea how to draw a monkey body. So I wound up finding a tutorial online. Only, I wound up doing the whole tutorial, not just the parts I needed. As I noted, though, making mistakes is part of the process here. You have to accept that at times you’re going to be distracted or not entirely on your game. On the other hand, your brain is learning stuff and filing it away for future use. It’s not the right image, no – but now I know how to draw a monkey, and this adds to my pool of drawing skills.
It’s all good.
