Herne the Hunter



This graphite drawing was done around '89 or so (in highschool art class), but I still like it, and it took me forever to draw. It's my interpretation of the antlered Celtic deity Herne/Cernunnos, holding his enchanted staff, surrounded by his wolves, with his dragon on his shoulder (all of them wearing crystals), his horn, flutes and lyre hung by his side and snow-covered Stonehenge in the background. (Yes, I know the the wolf's leg is bent in the wrong place, but I had only drawn one other wolf before drawing these, so I wasn't that adept with canine anatomy.) =P

Edit: Scanned the original, since the previous image was just a photo of the drawing. It looks much better now. :)
