Group Info

A group for deer artists of all kinds (traditional, digital, artisan crafts, etc.), those who RP deer or deer-like* fursonas/OCs/fan art, and those who photograph wild or domestic deer. If you love cervines (which throughout history have been considered sacred in religion and folklore around the world) as much as we do, then please join us and share the love of all things deer! :rudolph: = :heart:

For Group Rules and further info, please go here:…

(*Note: By "deer-like" we mean: deer-taurs/fauns, perytons and wendigos, the Tariaksuq, the Sianach, the Zlatarog, Hiiden Hirvi, antlered kirins/qilins and other deer-based unicorns, tree-antlered deer, deer-based hippogryphs, deer-dragons/chimeras, jackalopes and wolpertingers--antlered, not horned, AND having hooves as well--and various mythical/hybrid, antlered creatures and people--like Herne/Cernunnos, etc., so long as they have other deer features/aspects than antlers alone. And acceptable fan art would be that of: The Endless Forest, Fire Bringer/Rannoch, Bambi, Rudolph, Stantler, Shikijika, Mebukijika, Shikamaru, Tony Tony Chopper, Keiki, Masamune/Blackstar/Soul Eater, Mime Deer, Mini-moose, Rutt & Tuke, HTF Lumpy, Niko, Elliot, etc.)

Also, since many people have asked us, our animated group icon was graciously made for us by the talented Lizkay! The original image it is based off of can be seen here:… :)

Hello everyone!

I think I speak for a large number of us when I say you find deer inspiring or a large part of your art - I know they are for me. Some of you may be familiar with a game called The Endless Forest? The Endless Forest is a game-like computer program in which you are a deer, and you chill with other deer. from their website:

The Endless Forest is a multiplayer online game and social screensaver, a virtual place where you can play with your friends. When your computer goes to sleep you appear as a deer in this magical place. There are no goals to achieve or rules to follow. Just run through the forest and see what happens.

The Endless Forest has been a huge part of my artistic development and maybe its a big part of yours too? Or maybe you just love it for its beautiful simplicity.

The Endless Forest needs YOUR help!

The Endless Forest is a relaxing multiplayer online game where everyone plays a deer. Instead of chatting, questing or killing, people play with each other creatively in a virtual forest filled with magical surprises. The current version of the game has been going strong for 10 years with 170,000 registered players but we haven’t been able to expand it because its technology is outdated. Now we want to continue the endless growth that we have always envisioned for this project .

Even if you can pledge just a small amount, you will be helping ensure the games expansion and rebuild comes to fruition. There are some great rewards for both yourself AND the future of the game and its community. Help spread the word, we have until December the 27th!

If you want to learn more about the endless forest, here is the games official website!

And a feature of some of the amazing artwork inspired by the game!

Are centaurs with a deer body allowed in this group?

Example: Gratassa the Dryad (wip v3)

I thought I was told it wouldn't be accepted, so I'm confused :-? (Confused) 
But if you will accept it, feel free to send an offer to submit this colored version to your group, and I'll accept :)

Do you know who told you it would not be accepted? We accept any fantasy creature that is part deer and sufficiently deer-like in appearance, and since centaurs are 50% deer they fall right into our criteria.

Okay I was only double checking. I'm sorry if my comment came across as rigid. I like deers too and was surprised to find a group specifically for them  :)
Kytt3 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2017  Professional General Artist
No problems :)
