Another old one from last May drawn for Mother's day. I do not know why some pieces end up just never being posted like this.

Photographed horribly so perhaps one day I will try again. This piece has a lot of issues with it. The anatomy is very silly (ferret torso as always) And the detailing lacks in places. I also should have done more layering with the colours. Live and learn though, I have since developed a few better techniques.

Time: ?
Tools: 0.5 mm mech pencil, chalk pastel
Reference: I do not even remember if I used anything. I do not think so though.

This drawing is bloodmarked and copyright ShePaintsWithBlood, Aria Keehn (me) Thank you for looking!:blackrose:

I actually really love this piece...the red of the dear creates a really good, stark contrast against the black of the board! Not to mention it's neat how the deer seems curious about its environment, even though it doesn't have eyes. Nicely done!

Thank you so much! I am glad you think she seems curious. I am not sure about her eyes...I think they might just be closed but since she is a creature of mine there likely are no eyes under those lids.:blackrose:

Sure thing! All of your beasties are so fascinating...but that is interesting that she may not have eyes, kind of like those cave fish.

Gorgeous Blood, simply gorgeous. I love the contrast of this piece, it is very appealing to the eyes. Just as acustomed, I love your critters, I truly do. They always seem to be peaceful no matter what it is that they are.

Reminding me, I was wondering if I had your permission to draw a Knote? I just need to know what it is exactly that they are.

Thank you so very much, Wick!! I really appreciate it <3

Oh yes of course I would be so honored if you did! A Knote is basically a spirit resulting from a negative event anything from the sadness of a flower dying to the mass of a holocaust. As far as looks go, they are not a specific animal, they are just themselves though they have cloven hooves and deer/equine like legs and their shoulders and chest structure seem to have similarity to the equine body as well. And it is important to know that they have no external ears and that they do not have a nose like a dog but rather more of a nostril structure like a llama. Wow, long description!:blackrose:

No problem, I feel as though some of your worlds are the ones I myself would live in.

It's not too long, it helps to have such a description. Now, do they have any fur or anything like that?

Aww, that is a wonderful thought! You are definitely welcome in my worlds anytime

The only place they have fur is their neck and tail. It helps to look at this sculpture here [link] because she has real fur in the places where they have fur. The rest of their body is practically naked skin with only the tiniest velvety fur (like a hairless rat or cat or something.) :blackrose:

I love it, for all the faults you find with it I think it's wonderful. The subtle highlights on the delicate antlers, the plants sprouting from the body, the striking, well-placed colors are all things you succeeded greatly at, among others.

This is so beautiful!! :iconiloveyouplz:

The simplicity of the gray scale background, really heightens the red figure and draws your eye to it. Looking at the figure you see all the little details you put in it, such as the mushrooms and the beautiful fur detail. Girl I love this! I feel that this is one of your best works yet!! :tighthug:
