Dream Deer by kyoht Dream Deer by kyoht
A little while ago I had a really odd dream that involved painting this deer. It affected me so much, I felt the need to paint him in real life. He's changed a bit in his journey from the dream world to the real world, but the general feeling is still there. The background is metallic gold; hard to scan.

Acrylics.

blackdragonthebad is telling the truth when he says he hates deer, because this looks nothing like a reindeer. Who hates deer anyway?

First thing I thought when I saw this ; "Ours is the Fury".
Welp, I was off.
Great work though. It looks awesome. :D

I had a dream where I was in a desert and it was raining blood, that was fun. This is abit creepy but very beautiful, the horns must've taken ages.

just saw the trailer to that new snow white movie and they flashed a few times a scene with a white stag who had many horns.
i knew id seen it somewhere before.
i thought how strange when i reread the description and you said it was a dream you had.
lol your dreams see the future! ;)

Very gorgeous piece of work! Was that an intentional Nordic Holy Trinity symbol on the top? If it is, that makes me love this even more!! Perfect symmetry, and perfect design and colors... Must have been one hell of an awesome dream.

This painting is wonderful as always. It reminds me of the Celtic God.
Maybe He appeared in your dream because He wanted you to paint Him.
Are you gonna make that one into a print?

I'm just enchanted by this piece. I'm not surprised to hear that it found its way to your canvas from a dream. It just has a certain presence to it. Love this and the wild horns! I have an urge to go watch Princess Mononoke now. Love the forest god and his bajillion point rack!

Beautiful! It's a shame that the gold didn't show up so well in the jpeg, but there's no substitute for physical art ^_^ I also love the shine on the antlers, and tracing the path along them ^_^
