Blog post with sketches here: http://shadowscapes-stephanielaw.blogspot.com/2014/02/fermata.html

In musical terminology and notation, a fermata means to hold a tone or rest beyond the written value. It is a sustained moment beyond that which the meter or rhythm would normally accommodate.

Incidentally, a fermata is also sometimes known as a "bird's eye".

Beautiful work, Stephanie :heart: I really like the colours you used for "Legato", but I love the look of this one. The white stag looks so majestic! Beautiful, calm, yet so strong... Looks like he is a spirit of forest :)

The title fits.  The fermata arches over the line of music, "Stay a little longer here. Don't rush off too quickly."

With that in mind, the great stag is "The Director".

(How long do we hold the fermata?  Until Kathy tells us to move on.)

I really like the realistic creature anatomy and the way you combined it with the fantastic treatment.

Ahh; that rest. Music lessons were a near-lifetime ago.

You know how pretty much everything on DA falls into one of two categories, the sucky MS Paint drawing category and the so good you want to shoot yourself category? This falls very firmly within the latter.
