Thought it was about time I drew a male deer in battle gear and wanted to draw a motion pose, for I havenít done one in awhile.
Kept with the natural theme I have going on for my Deer characters, so twigs, wood, and other natural materials abound and I added war paint for the first time here too.
I especially like the weapon concept of incorporating antlers with the tips sharpened to a point. Now before you all freak out Deer naturally shed their antlers so it is totally feasible that an anthro deer could use them to create many useful things and feel ok with it, I might even go as far to say there could be symbolism or personal attachment to the antlers as well.
Hope you all enjoy.
