Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black fineliner, and add a “fork” to your page. Bring the top line down slightly, and then add another line to the bottom, taking this one down a little further and ending with a point at the end.
Bring up another “fork”, this time with a flat top on the forks, and bring the line on the left down and across to the left.
Now, add a pointed “spike” to the right of this…
Add a triangle to the top of this, and then bring down two short, parallel lines. Take the line to the left, add a “point”, and then continue it.
Bring up another “fork” on the left, connected to the original point.
Next, bring across two more angled sections…
And then add a triangle to the bottom. Next, take a line down towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page. Bring a square section down, add a small “point”, and then take the line across to the right.
Return to the top section, and bring a diagonal line down, and then across to the right.
Take the line down towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page, making a point, and then bring the line up.
Bring down a curved chest from the front…
Connect the lines at the bottom together…
And then bring down two curved lines, narrowing as they descent. Angle the lines across slightly to the right, and then bring them down to flare out in a hoof at the bottom.
Bring two lines across to the bottom left-hand corner of the page, and then take these down to join at the bottom.
Add another leg to the front…
And follow this with a second leg behind, this time angled to the right.
Now, turn your attention to the right antler, and divide this into small triangles.
Repeat this with the antlers to the left…
And then divide the rest of the antlers with small triangles.
Add a long, thin rectangle just below the antlers, and divide this into two.
Connect this to the antlers at the top, creating small triangles.
Now, add more small triangles to the front of the nose.
Divide the body of the deer into triangles…
And then repeat this on the legs.
Grab a red pen, and add color to two triangles in each leg, as well as several sections of the body and antlers.
Use a deep blue pen for two more triangles on each leg, a few more on the body, and the antlers.
Grab a yellow pen, and add color to two triangles on each of the legs, and repeat this by filling in triangles on the body and antlers.
Follow this up with a green pen for a few more of the sections…
And then follow this up with a pink pen for a number of other areas.
Now, use an aqua pen for a few more of the triangles – be creative!
Add more color to a few more triangles with a brown pen.
Now, use a yellow pen for almost all of the remaining triangles, leaving a few gaps on the antlers.
Shade the remaining gaps on the antlers with a light green pen.
And there we have it – your very own stunning deer, waiting to uncover the wonders of the forest – which mysteries may await this amazing creature?
