Nice start. And interesting pick of an animal, this should be fun to model, love the long horns. Wicked! Great choice! :attn:

Cali: thanks! doing what i can to make this one my absolute best ever

Tiago2: i still havent decided if i should do the extremely large horns or just the short ones i've build for now. but yeah. a wicked creature indeed

Small update:

trying to get the skin to fit around the base of the horns.. my base mesh is a mess full of tri's, quads and 5+ sided polys right now. Will be cleaned ofcourse

Great start Rotbol. Definately think you should go for the large horns. They will look really cool winding around the head, as in your reference picture.

Looks good. The horns are definately better. And I really like the way you have done the ear.

another update.

I've started adding details to the horns. I'm doing it on each horn seperately to ensure asymmetri.
