A concept of a creature that brings death and destruction yet without losing its grace.
I will use him for a bigger painting that is coming soon. :>

For more WIPs, photographs and general updates, watch me on Facebook ~> www.facebook.com/AlectorFencer :D

Thank you so much for looking! :blowkiss:

That's gloriously eerie and elegant! I love the way in which his form is drifting into smoke. Fantastic work! :)

He reminds me of the Black Rabbit from "Watership Down"...just obviously a deer instead of a rabbit (and definitely more graceful). :)

This drawing immediately reminds me to that creepy horse-thing from Harry Potter (Thestral). Nice work, anyway.

I've been looking at so many of your masterpieces now and I must ask this: what program have you been using? I mean all of your art is so unique and marvelous I can't get enough!

I like this twist of symbolism. I often see stags representing life, protection, renewal (like in Fantasia 2000's Firebird Suite, Harry Potter's Patronus, etc.) But I enjoy your creativity in showing a stag embodying the opposite of all those things while still maintaining the beauty and allure those creatures naturally carry. Very cool!

Its beautiful, but I can't help thinking you've captured Herne the Hunter, or even older than he, Cernunnos.
Regardless, thank you for sharing.
Truly appreciated

did you draw the smoke on the right or is it photo manipulation?

Nice TWIST on the creature of nature being in this case one of death and destruction :P

And not the good fire and rebirth kind either... ;)

Memorizing! From the bold thickness of the antlers to the fine silky ness of the stags longer fur.  MAGNIFICENT!
