For a friend :).

A lot of things about this are symbolic (including the hair on the feet and tail, I know deer don't have that). I'm fully aware it's far from accurate in terms of anatomy, I did not look at any references, realism was besides the point for this particular piece and I didn't have much time to finish it.

He loved it, that's what matters ^^.

Funny thing, the other day I met a girl who was going to apply to the HKU, isn't that where you go as well?

Yes and no, I'm kind of done with having to do homework as I really just want to move on and start making money with what I do. I don't feel like I'm learning significantly much either so that kind of adds to my irritation. BUT, it varies strongly from person to person; I know plenty of people who still really enjoy the education and feel like they're learning a lot, so I guess it's just me being done with the whole school thing that's the problem xD.

Heh, I failed my exams in 6 VWO by one tenth of a point, so I've done 7 years of it. You can imagine how I felt, haha. I sure hope so, thanks! <3

I think it looks lovely! Realism is often not the point in art. ;)

Gorgeously done and very well stated for the additions on the deer. Art is meant to make people smile, and think, and then smile :)

Pfft who cares about anatomy here, its stylized and when its stylized you can do whatever you want. It looks great and I love it :)
Reply
:iconlhuneart:
LhuneArt Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I'm afraid I very strongly disagree with that statement ^^;. Stylized does not mean anatomy is irrelevant, stylized means an abstract from reality; for which you do have to know reality and follow it's rules. In fact it bothers me when artists hide behind "stylization" to disregard things such as anatomy and proportion; it's not until you know the rules that you can break them.

Having said that, I do appreciate that you don't think the flawed anatomy takes away from the quality :). It's just that I usually have a slight obsession with anatomy and I fear my watchers have that expectation from me (accurate/believable anatomy in my creature designs), which is why I figured I'd mention the flaws before anyone criticizes them :).

Oh I know that stylized means you dont throw anatomy out the window. Just means it doesn't have to be perfect.

Tell that to whoever is working at Disney or Pixar (or any other major cartoon producing company), or whoever is trying to apply there, heh. It's a different kind of perfect, but it definitely has to be darn near close :).

Just remember that everyone sees the flaws in their own artwork the best! And other people don't see them!

Oh that's definitely true ^^. Everyone's their own worst critic. Still, no harm in striving for improvement/perfection! Even if in art it takes a lifetime (that's part of the charm really, heh).

Yes constantly improving is the best thing! I just thought you were being too hard on yourself. Its a really nice picture :)

Heh aw don't worry about that! I'm always hard on myself but it got me as far as I am and I still love doing art :). For me the kick is not necessarily in making a pretty picture, for me it's in making a (technically) good picture. It's hard but it pays off :).

i absolutely love your shading method. this character is so unique and beautiful/handsome, but what i love most about this is the frame of the background how it creates the atmosphere of a forest/ skyline, its so lovely. i love the stare of the deer. who cares if its not perfect :) it looks great!
