deer shamaness by katya-h deer shamaness by katya-h
I actually love anthro art so much <3 I just... never really think about drawing it. I'm obsessed with humans. So this is just one of those tings to do for fun/lulz.

A deer shamaness >_> I have this.. obsession with shamanism and I couldn't tell you why. I just do. Anyway, I wanted to make it seem like she has horns, sort of a mix of feelings for the traditional role of shamans, and about how in certain places transgenders/twospirits are thought of very highly and spiritually. But also to look like a tree, a natural outgrowth... etc you get the idea

sold on furbid :3

So, I recently started a D&D game where instead of the classic races, we are anthros. My character is a sorcerer deer, with antlers, which makes her a sort of prophet/high priestess in her tribe. This drawing is pretty much exactly what I have pictured my character looking like, and this is so perfect<333

This is simply breathtaking! I love the line work and the composition, though perhaps you could have dappled her visible skin to be deer-patterned? It might have been tricky, but I think if maybe you diffused the deer-like quality a bit more, you piece will flow all the better.

I love her delicate, elegant muzzle and shadowed eyes, and the style of her clothing - it's both exotic and earthy.

...oh! At first I really thought the ornaments above her heads WERE supposed to be stylized trees (mostly because I never associate female deer with horns/antlers), but it's a cool design idea *_* The overall art nouveau touch works really well here, as I always associate it with feminine and natural things :)

I've always thought of horns/antlers as looking kinda treeish anyways and already loved that bit about your Aghori character you showed me (who seems overall kinda tree-ish to me. And ashy. I love him *_*). <3

And we all know Shamans rule anyways xD

This looks wonderful as a lineart, but do you intend to color this? I'm just curious - I bet I would imagine it with completely different colors than you would come up with in the end :lol:

Well yeah they are stylized trees, bt their placement is mean to remind of antlers as well ;p

I am gonna color this, because I think the way I did the lines looks like I should anyway. Unlike other lined pictures I've done. So if you wanna also color it with your colors, gimme a head's up and I'll send the lineart to you as well ^^

Oh WOW this is rocking! DX Guh you've really killed me, I'm such a sucker for art nouveau. Love the sheer elegance this piece radiates-- don't supposed you'd ever color it? Beautiful beautiful cloak design, reminds me nearly of a waterfall actually. Really love the flow to your shapes as well, guh<3<3<3 And the tree antlers....! *just so totally in love*

I cannot stress this more: GREAT job!

Hehehe, I'm coloring it, I'm just not sure how I wanna color it? I layed down some flats and I was trying to decide what would be the best way to color it, I think I might add it to my portfolio or something :P
