Let`s learn how to draw a deer.
I think that Robin Hood in the Sherwood forest was hunting for this kind of deer. As you can see, these animals are distinguished by beauty, grace and nobility of posture and proportions. I’ve always liked the Robin Hood stories, but I really felt sorry for the deers.
But let’s draw – we’ll start with the body, it’s big and looks almost rectangular in profile. However, notice that the croup is higher than the withers, it looks like a hillock.
Hind legs are long, slender and have noticeable folds.
The front legs are shorter and they stand perfectly straight. I always wonder that all these big and heavy animals rely on comparatively small hoofs. However, the hoof are analogous to our nails.
The head of the deer is crowned with long branchy horns.
Muzzle is like a goat only more refined.
But in addition to the pair of front single horn deer has still a hive of horns.
There are many kinds of deer that have slight differences in color. But mostly the skin is spotted and near the tail there is a light wool patch.
