Being the General of the Gods - Karthikeya rides a peacock into battle, well, according to the stories anyway. But a peacock is a tiny thing, how does one actually sit on it? But then it occurred to me that Ostrich racing actually exists and realized that its possibly how Karthikeya rides his peacock. That plus his lance would have to be much larger to reach out past his vehicle and attack his enemies. And that odd combination of facts led to this drawing, retaining the same basic design as my earlier drawings of him.
