Welcome to Scottish Deerhounds

This group is dedicated to the Scottish Deerhound also known simply as Deerhounds. So if you own a Deerhound, draw or paint, write about, photograph or just love Deerhounds then this may be the group for you :D

:bulletgreen: Rules :bulletgreen:

Any work submitted to the club must include a Deerhound in some way, so a photo of your kitty cat wouldn't be accepted unless she was curled up sleeping on a Deerhound.

When submitting try to do so to the right folder.

Style or art quality is not an issue, if we can tell it's a Deerhound it will be accepted.

A good example of what we will not accept can be found here,
The one on the right is a Borzoi (if it was a Deerhound you could submit it here) and the one on the left is a crazy fantasy thing (which is not recognizable as any breed).
I don't mind if your Deerhound character has wings or wears a scarf or anything like that as long as it is recognizable as a Deerhound we will accept it here.

Please not too much gore, yes the Deerhound is a hunting breed as its name suggests but we don't want to see them tearing apart other animals or we'll be up to our knees in drama. A photo of a Deerhound chasing a rabbit is fine just not of it tearing the rabbit apart.

:bulletblue: There is now a folder for Deerhound crosses this folder can also be used if you're unsure if a photo is of an Irish Wolfhound or a Deerhound :bulletblue:

Credit for the Deerhound photo used in our icon goes to-SaNNaS
I've had someone tell me submissions weren't working they should be now, sorry about that I thought they were, please do submit any and all Deerhound related artworks/photos ect you might have hiding in your gallery XD We all know DA needs more Deerhounds.

Thanks for adding me to the group. Can we use the photos posted as drawing/painting references, or do we need to check with the individual that posted it?

Sorry for the super late response, I never saw the notification of this comment on the group, you would need to check with the individual who posted the photo,  many of them will have whether or not their photos may be used for reference in the description of the photo or a journal entry about it.

You're welcome, he's absolutely gorgeous :)
thetebe Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2011
Yeah, he is. Some say he looks regal. ....they have not met him. He is a giant puppy. :D

Without a doubt the Scottish Deerhound is the most elegant, artistically inspiring and humorous of creatures - a truly deviant dog.
Added a couple more to my profile now that I know there are more Deerhound fanatics. Ygres was the mother of 'my" nine deerhound pups - she lived up to her name which means the Lady in Grey. Check out gorgeous Scottish Deerhound portrait on [link] Thanks for the invite, much appreciated.

Why hasn't anyone written about the news of the Deerhound winning freaking Westminster? That has to be journal worthy news for this club! O_O
Ranshii Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Being that its an American dog show it wasn't big news here in Australia, if anyone wants to write one up they're more then welcome or I may write something up in my own time.

I'm not sure what to write other than it's the first time for Westminster to ever have the Deerhound win. Are there any details you would like me to look up? Because I wouldn't mind writing it. ^^
Ranshii Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
That'd be great :) Maybe include some details about her owners, how long they've been showing Deerhounds, maybe a little about the dog herself, just anything you think relevant. I'm sure there's plenty of articles around, I'm not sure if you've seen this already but here's the wikipedia article about the dog [link] there's a fair bit there that might be useful.
