“Bush-Crowned Moor (R. svarte) stag fleeing a Leomas (L. aenigmae)”
Medium: Gouche on Canson cold-press watercolor paper
Started as a study for one of the illustrations I want to do in the Libre Vultibeastiae (Book of Expressive Beasts) but it kinda got away from me. The beasts are based on more prehistoric mammals. The deer here is based on Eucladoceros dicranios (I love the antlers on them) I had some trouble uping the contrast so that it looks like it should but oh well. <3 Relearning that high-contrast typically means something is closer and low contrast means that something is farther away and atmosphere is getting in the way.
