rest - doe by kelogsloops rest - doe by kelogsloops



IT HAS BEEN FOREVER, since I've last posted some new work here on deviantArt, and I'm pretty angry at myself for that.
It's been knocking in the back of my head for a long time now, and I think it came down to being almost a feeling of dread. All of a sudden I got really scared to post my work up here, and I'm not sure why.
I kept putting it off, but heck, it's a new year (two months in now...), time to tackle these insecurities!

But anyway, so I ended up making a little sister piece last year to this one: rest - fox
There was just something that I really found enjoyable about these sleepy little animals, and I guess I took it a step further. Kind of contemplating even making a mini series of little resting animals.


Some more of my work:

It's a lovely piece, I don't think you should feel any trepidation about posting at all! I love that the little doe seems so safe and protected, peaceful.

Whether you post on dA or not, I'm still supporting you on Instagram :) Just know that all of us love your works, and it's okay to feel insecure (though... it does make me a little scared that someone as talented as you do feel such a way D:) but anyway, welcome back! :)

Chitanda Smile Icon Very beautiful and cute! Deer Terrific Job! And it's okay, I get nervous when I post thing too. Grant it, I'm no where near as talented as you, but still, the feeling is natural.

I've never seen a resting deer, and I doubt if one can approach one quietly enough to not jolt it awake.

I think deer are in a state of constant fear & wariness, even when asleep.

Prettyyy colors - really like how they get more vivid on the back.  It does make a nice companion piece with the fox.  I like the warmer-color/cooler-color contrast between the two.
