White-tailed deer is a species that can be found in the United States to as far as Peru. This animal is as graceful as they come. When I look at this animal all I see is a peaceful creature just looking to be left alone in the wilderness. Today I have decided that I am going to show you "how to draw a deer". Their coat changes color to adjust to the passing seasons. In the spring through summer months, they have a reddish- brown coat, and in the fall to winter season it changes to a grayish brown color. A buck which is a male typically weighs in at around 225 pounds, but you can also find some rare bucks that weigh as high as 350 pounds. The doe which is a female weigh as little as 90lbs and up to a whopping 175lbs. When do the males get their antlers you ask? Well, their antlers start protruding through the skin around a year old and are covered in a tissue known as velvet. The first introduction to gaming the white-tailed deer started back in 1884 in the Czech Republic. The hunt for deer continues to grow strong in the United States. It is so strong that they have a hunting channel that show men shooting down this peaceful creature with either a bow or a riffle. I mean I wouldn’t mind it if they were like starving but come on, if they have enough money to afford all those fancy weapons then they don’t need to be killing animals for a sport, especially a big animal like a deer. But whatever humans are gonna do what they want regardless right. In this tutorial I give real easy instructions to show you "how to draw a deer". It has 6 steps and looks good too. I used a picture from my National Geographic magazine. It came out looking like a cartoon but that's okay. I used Photoshop to place the trees in the background. The sketch was a project that took me 2 ½ hours. I think I did a good job, I like it. Have fun boys and girls. Learning some fun facts about the deer can be helpful before you begin to draw.
