We sure hope so. But can't promise.
Spent ten minutes in Carrara to see if I could knock up an antler lol
then threw some paint at it!
a bit more time spent should be able to get something half decent for the mule deer. Gotta look at more images.
The one with the moss is awesome Stezza!
Very fun Stezza.
I think I'll have a go at a set of Red Stag antlers before too long.
Somewhere in between the two would be Caribou?
WOW, such interesting designs for the antlers.
Yeah that Red Stag antlers would really lend itself to nature hanging off of it
Prehistoric Irish Elk ?
It certainly would be nice to see the prehistoric Irish elk (Megaloceros giganteus). It probably has the largest antlers of all deer, but proportionate to its size the caribou or reindeer has relatively larger antlers. And neither is it the largest deer of all times - the prehistoric moose (Cervalces latifrons) is even larger. If Chris is interested in doing an Irish elk, this article may help: The Life Appearance of the Giant Deer Megaloceros. The closest living deer relative to the Irish elk is the Fallow deer (Dama dama) so like the Fallow deer it probably has an 'Adam's apple'. Also prehistoric cave paintings suggest so. The following pictures are taken from the above article by Darren Naish:
And this is a Fallow deer (Note the 'Adam's apple')
Thanks for that info on the Irish Elk Especially the possible coat colouring .
Got the Classic Saddle positioned to the Mule Deer. Next is the Bridle.
love this!!! That will look beautiful with some Sami textures for the blanket
What is a "Sami" texture?
Classic Tack positioning complete.
'The Sami people are a Finno-Ugric people inhabiting Sápmi, which today encompasses large parts of Norway and Sweden, northern parts of Finland, and the Murmansk Oblast of Russia ' - from Wiki- and many of them still herd and keep reindeer.
Oh that texture would be perfect for Christmas!
Very cool, Desertsilver.
Chris are you going to be offering the Classic Tack fit for the deer?
