Anatomy of the Deer King by KatePfeilschiefter Anatomy of the Deer King by KatePfeilschiefter
Done for a Bio class.
I can't decide whether I prefer this coloured variation to my monochrome one. But the red is certainly eye catching.

I think people overlook animals deemed normal based on their proximity to us. Deer, crows, coyotes, etc, they're all quite cool.

Was watching this most of the time while working- [link]

Phenomenally done! I agree - I've always loved deer, but people tend to just think of them as road hazards most of the time. I think they're pretty amazing :heart:
I love all the different antler variations depending on the deer species. Subtle but unique!
Wonderful structure!

Nice details, very life like. The reds really do hand it for contrast's sake rather than having it blend in the monochrome.

This is amazing image O_O, and I'm telling this as a biologist. I have to admit - red gives a beautiful contrast and puts attention on the most important parts! Great projection of the muscles. I'm very glad that the horns are similar, but not perfectly symmetrical, this is a small thing, but makes the image look more natural and realistic.

I feel sorry that great, detailed (but still very clear!) artworks like this one, didn't appear in my university books. Studying would be bigger pleasure :)

This was just posted by 'steampunk' on facebook aswell and I couldn't agree more, it gives a very dark Victorian-esque feel...

Oh this is fanominal. I love the red shading in the muscle anatomy. Eye catching indeed.
The anatomy of the deer is stunning, and even with his insides exposed, I'm seeing why the title has 'King' in it.
