Here’s something a bit different. This satyr or faun is from a set of drawings of mythical half-human, half-animal thingies I did some years ago as a project in a drawing class. There were five of them altogether, including a minotaur, a centaur and so on, but this was the only one that didn’t look as if it was done by a half-man, half-lunatic. Having said that, when I gave a print of it to a friend she nearly had me sectioned - "You don't draw things like that," she said. But I did. It was based (roughly) on a life drawing.
