Illustration Daily: Goat

Taking from the occult mythology that surrounds the goat to inform this illustration. Goats might been seen as creepy because of their unusual rectangular pupils (only sheep, goats, octopuses, and toads have this shape). The rectangular pupil gives goats improved depth perception and peripheral vision. They can see 320 to 340 degrees, essentially everything but what is directly behind them. This excellent field of vision helps goats evade predators.
