It looks to me like you used a photo, used pixel-selection (maybe magic
wand) to extract the Ibex and made it black. This has 2 problems, then: 

The choice of photo doesn't offer the best view, as the horns look too
much like one thing at the start and the farther away horn ends ends
hidden by the shoulder.

The silhouette isn't smooth. To get it smooth, you have to use the path
tool. But I would advice tracing in Inkscape, as that's more comfortable
and you end up with a small, flexible SVG.

Did you simulate how this looks with a 4:3 resolution with zoom?
