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!

Hello, I've been waiting for my submission to be accepted for over a week now. Might I know if there's a reason why the decision still hasn't been made?
Flora-Tea Featured By Owner Edited Mar 31, 2021  Professional Digital Artist
From what I can tell, no new deviations have been accepted into the group since May 2020 and it seems the only active mods were last active around that time too. I'm concerned that this group may be dead D:
Gabzilah Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2021  Hobbyist Artist
That's such a shame for it's such a cool niche group, but it is strange how they didn't even seem to put up a journal or some form of notification that the admins and moderators aren't working (which is weird since I just joined recently and you'd think if they weren't working I wouldn't have gotten into the group).
