I used a real reference picture this time. Not as extravagant a background as the first, but deer are more sweet. Thus, all the softer colors.
I needed an animal that people would recognize as soon as they saw it. A deer is that animal. In every form they take you can still tell that they are deer. Not antelope.
The reference picture for this one was a little fawn, thus the soft features of this deer.
and Sharpie Markers.
