I knew it was a royal stag, because he is a red deer- Herla- I shall call his starbuck, Because he look soooo purdy that he look like he will jump out of the page. A must fave for you and dev watch :clap:

I am simply in awe. I don't know what to say, but it's a GOOD speechlessness.

Lessee. I can't come up with anything original to say, so I'll stick with what I know. If it weren't in the traditional art category, I'd mistake it for a photograph, for one thing. o.o I'm just amazed by all the photorealistic detail.

very nice. to avoid 'bending' when photographing, move the camera further away and zoom in...

Just amazing. The work and detail that must have gone into this, and at such a small size! You've got such skill. I think I can tell what the fur would feel like from here.

the stags head , excluding the antlers is about 4 inches tall. its antlers about another four of five. I cant really measure it at the moment, Im just guessing it, but its head fits in the palm of my hand.

I was just reading an old comment you made on one of my paintings where you mentioned that you were in the process of painting a deer. So I had to come over and see if you'd finished it. This is wonderful! I love the colors and the detail in the fur is outstanding! I wish I could see the entire piece! Are you finished with it yet? And are you planning to post the whole thing? You did an incredible job with this! Excellent work! :clap:

I showed this to my husband, and he thought it was a photo at first. Absolutely amazing. The fur looks so real, like it can be touched. Lovely job on the antlers as well, they look 3-D.

I adore your painting skillz. =)

Wow! I am SO BAD about replying on time! I am just getting around to answering your on this one. 0_o

I just wanted to say that I really look up to you as an artist too, so the feeling about being ";proper chuffed" is definately mutual. =)

Amazing work, the fact that you got the high realism down pat as well as the background information really shows your devotion to your artwork. Knowing about facts like these can help you better understand your works and can really help your progress.

Always make sure to take good care of your pieces. I can see on the top of the antler there is a wrinkle on the page, effecting the look of the stag's picture. Also, if you plan on selling your works (which I highly suggest you do, you've got more than enough talent for it. And that's an understatment) keep your works in good condition, and sell good copies/prints of the pictures. When they become more popular, then you can sell the origional for a much higher price.

Remember- art is an extension of yourself. Artist make artworks for themselves. Artisans make artworks for others but put their feelings into it. If you can learn how to seperate yourself from art, you will not only be able to sell well, you will also be able to recieve and appreciate good critiques. Because it is not you who is getting judged, it is your art.

You know I showed this great piece of work to my friend. She wasn't as enthusicatic as I was. Even though I pointed out she could never do it as well, she didn't seem impressed. Bah! People who don't like art... What can you do with them? :shrug:

WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A C??? Maybe they thought you just got a photograph and cut out the background.... LOL... Cos it's really easy to make that kinda mistake with this pic.

Or maybe they thought that it was too boring and unoriginal. Just a royal stag, that's it - nothing to analyze, nothing to wax philosophical about, nothing to read half-assed meanings into... So what if it's 99% photorealistic? Idiots... bleh... :bleh:

What can I asy... mad pr0ps. This definitely goes into my favorites...

Absolutely fantastic! May I ask how you learn to draw fur so well? Is that something you just keep practicing until you get it? How long did it take you to make that guy? Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!

I didnt really learn anywhere, I could always draw and paint. though I did a degree in science illustration which helped me to improve hone my skills alot.
I must have been destined to paint animals, all my earliest picutres from about 4 years old were of the pet dogs and farm animals I saw. I never drew a person until I was 13!

I might do, it doesnt all fit on my scanner, and when i photograph it, it looks bent as the picture was done as a long collumn. I might scan in the rest and post them as seperate illustrations though.
