In the previous lesson we talked about animals from farms, how about we begin a lesson that will show you "how to draw a deer for kids", step by step. The deer was once a very adored forest animal breed. The deer initially gained their fame and popularity soon after the Disney movie “Bambi” came out. Anyone who has watched the movies knows that it is a flick that follows the lives of forest animals with the main figures being the deer. Bambie is a deer and learns how to talk, ice skate, and make friends as he goes on a journey with the rest of his forest animal friends. He does this because his mom dies and the poor little fawn has to fend for himself. Along the way he comes across his father, who is the “king” of the forest. Bambie is considered to be the prince since the king is the one that fathered the baby deer. Anyways the point of this tale is to show how one simple movie, the deer population in the US has risen to a point where they are almost considered a nuisance. For a while it was illegal to hunt deer, nowadays there are actual deer contests being set every hunting season. Anyways, I hope you enjoy this tutorial on "how to draw a deer for kids" because even artists that have general ideas on how to draw things, the deer can be a tricky forest critter to tackle. I will be back soon with more drawing fun. What lesson will come out from under my sleeve next?
