Well I have been getting into drawing realistic animals lately and I think it’s mainly because I want to get better at drawing realistically, and because hunting season is here. My eleven year old brother, and fourteen year old sister have started their gun and hunting safety course Tuesday, and they asked me if I could do a lesson that will teach them "how to draw a realistic deer", step by step. I have a bunch of deer tutorials on the site already, but since I was getting in the mood to drawing realistic animals lately, I figured a deer of their liking would be a good idea. I love these forest dwelling creatures and for some reason they always give off a sense of peace, and harmony to any meadow. For a while deer hunting was outlawed in certain states across the U.S. and I’m pretty sure the law was put in place right after the release of Walt Disney’s Bambi. I guess people didn’t want deer being killed anymore so after picketing, and running an anti-deer hunting campaign, hunters had no choice but to stop hunting deer. Anyways because hunting for deer was illegal for a while, the population grew like wildfire. There is now just as many deer in existence as there are squirrels, pretty weird huh? Anyway, I believe that you should only hunt for animals for survival and nothing more. In regards to this tutorial, I think you will have fun learning "how to draw a realistic deer," step by step. I think you will find that drawing the realistic version of this species isn’t all that hard. Well that’s it. I hope you have fun with this lesson. Be sure to come back and join me real soon for more drawing magic.
