    Initial steps for a little personal project.

    Setting up some guides for the sake of geometry and proportion. Needs lots of refinements though. But then again it's just an 10 min initiating process to set up those guides for future improvements. Really need to get my ass back onto client stuff before they're gonna freak out on me :D

    Should I continue or just drop it like it's hot?

    Larger screenshot attached.

    If you ever wondered how to add a tangent line to curved paths in order to create a smooth transition from a circle to a straight line for non level rounded corners, here's my trick.

    Edit: for those who are interested in this particular workflow: the large circle (center) is the main starting circle. All remaining circles are derived from it in percentages, like the smaller circles on its mouth, butt, etc are 25% of the large one, and so on. I try to keep those angles consistent as well. For instance, the diagonal line starting from its mouth is copied to the tail, trying to keep the tail in the same angle. The opposite diagonals are mirrored, trying to keep the angle of its legs consistent as well.

    love the horn and the spiky details on it!

    could you maybe post a shot with the guidelines highlighted? really want to know how to place them the right way, of course there's no right or wrong, but I'd love to see yours!

    @Daniel I've attached a larger screenshot. You can also view it here: http://grab.by/c3QC

    There's no right or wrong with placing those guides. It's just my preferred way of getting a better geometric foundation.

    This is really rad Gert! Love the horn and the shading. It has a nice child-like quality to it, but this you see the horn and it is like POW!

    This is beautiful. Love the line work on the horn and the overall simplicity of it.

    I felt the tail is a bit distracting, but I think it adds to the balance. And always love to see when guides are actually used properly.

    Really awesome Gert! I just feel the tail needs some refinement, its curves can be improved to be more coherent with the global shape.

    Solid work!

    @Stelian @Franck I hear ya fellas. The tail isn't right, but I quickly drew it with the pen tool and placed those guides afterwards. Needs lots of refinements for sure.

    Took me a while to figure out the shape, and it wasn't until I read your title that I made out the Bull shape

    Hmm is it a bull or a rhino? Or am i just totally interpreting this the wrong way? Love the shape :)
