Let`s learn how to draw a deer.
Let`s start with
Wapiti drawing lesson
Wapiti is the American version of the red deer.
First we drew the most general scheme. Just making sure that the proportions are correct, we can continue. I advise you to still work on the details with a pencil:
Now the drawing is absolutely clear and we can make it step by step.
Step 1 – body. The deer, of course, seems to us a marvelous speedy and very slim animal. But in fact it is a herbivore and its main occupation is to grass itself . So the torso in profile looks like a rectangular and with a hanging belly.
The hind legs are really slim and beautiful and we need to be able to honestly portray all the bends.
The front legs of almost all large animals look straighter than the hind ones.
The deer stretched its neck and bends its head to the ground.
Now we need to crown the comparatively small head of the wapiti with huge bushy horns. Consider that there are two of them and they are symmetrical. Color the resulting linear image:

Draw the most generalized draft:
Now we will clarify the biggest details.
We can say that the drawing is ready. It remains only to make the line contrast and clear. We will circle the body. Usually, people assume that the body in animals is oval, but in this case we see that it is rectangular in wapiti. Draw the hind legs: Front legs: This deer is walking slowly, its neck is bent and its head is raised: Now we have to draw the horns. They are branchy, there are two of them and we will have to draw them with the imposition. Well, we figured out how to draw the head and horns of wapiti. Let’s color our deer. In general, the wool is reddish-brown. But on the neck of the wapiti, the color is much darker.

As you can see, these animals are distinguished by beauty, grace and nobility of posture and proportions.
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.
