I’m still kind of sick today, which doesn’t (or kind of does) explain why I am up so late (though, all things considered, it’s fairly early for me, especially on a Friday night).
Anyhoo, Mordicai pointed out that:
“The skull should be narrow, & the rest of the body should be able to be squeezed through anything the head can be.”
Which made me stop and think: Up until now, I had been trying to draw what pretty much amounted to a long-necked badger, but the already upright, serpentine head and neck, along with the streamlined shape of the face were definitely more weaselly.
So I ran with it. It’s probably a step in the right direction, but I’m still kind of wrapping my head around the blacktooth having this new, very different shape, and ought to get some more liquids in me so I can go to sleep.
