Pencil Neck Alien #tessellation

Started this drawing using a Cairo tiling as a base, which is an arrangement of pentagons. Weird how these things morph in my fingers. It was originally constructed using symmetry group P4g about 10 days ago. These things sometimes make no sense to me, but I just go with the flow.

Four images here, the original Cairo Tiling I did about two years ago; the tessellation recoloured in Pixelmator; the same rotated for easier viewing; and a single extract of the character with a cheat, I included the hooves of the instances beside the neck, otherwise it would be completely a pencil, like the next image!
