Barnyard Balladeer Part I

Here's a look at the first couple of sketches for a new painting in the "Animal Kingdom" series. The original idea was to make a "Rocking Rooster", based on famous guitarists like Keith Richards or Slash. But somewhere along the process this rockstar became more of a mariachi type of character.
For inspiration I looked at spanish matadors, mainly for their typical poses but also for their costumes.
