It is now nearly the next day and I am changing my mind again the more I think about it, I should stick with the character that has already been made and see what I can change, what I can adapt to make it more suitable. So I have roughly sketched out some ideas on paper and the white board as things came to me.
The idea that has stuck with me the most is to use a combination of the eyes and the horns to convey emotions, the way that the Kiwi would with eyes and perhaps the beak. Using this method will be more challenging, but hopefully it will help convey the message better.
For now though I think I should sleep on it as I am feeling a little disheartened as things are not coming together as I had hoped and time as always feels like it is against me.
