Winter Is Coming by Lord-StarryFace Winter Is Coming by Lord-StarryFace
Huzzah! Finally! Starry has uploaded something of worth after many many months of procrastination and Uni deadlines :meow:
A few days ago I thought, 'time for a new character!!' As the forefront of my gallery is cluttered with Nordanners and as much as I love them, the breed has too many rules for me to deem them as fully-fledged characters. And thus I decided to make a deer character (a guilty pleasure of mine and I've always wanted a super duper deer character but have never made one satisfactory enough to upload) and so the great deer creation began! :la: I knew that I definitely wanted a grey and white one (oh how original, what with my fursona lol) and that I wanted it to be unique to a certain degree. I thought about elements relating to the pelt colour in mind and automatically thought 'ice' and 'snow' so a Winter deer seemed perfect :meow:

Here's a little character info thus far (ref sheet to come)!! :
:bulletblue: Female
:bulletblue: Reindeer/ Red deer hybrid (hence why she has antlers)
:bulletblue: The winter spirit who brings the cold weather and snow
:bulletblue: has a long flowey mane of fabulousness :3
:bulletblue: Antlers have lace made out of magic tied to them which can either float or drag on the floor (little blue glowy lights hand from them)

Thats all I've got so far, I still need a name if you have suggestions and maybe if you have any other power ideas that would be great :3

As for the picture itself, It's supposed to represent a metaphorical transformation from warm weather to cold weather ie Summer to Winter :)
The girl is a Summer Nymph playing with some orbs of light and the Winter deer comes trolling in to shoo her off so Winter can begin :XD:

I hope you like it - it was a nice change to do some lineless painting c: please please please critique! I really want to improve with painterly stuff like this :meow:
