Sambar Hei Lu by Esava Sambar Hei Lu by Esava
Commission for :iconcitrushark: of her demon deer character.

Description:
"Hei Lu is a malicious demon that takes the form of a large black deer with long and sharp antlers. Tied around the branches of his antlers are 4 bells that sing a beautiful melody when he shakes his large head. This sound is often irresistible to curious children, who will follow the intoxicating sound deep within the forest. When they are near, Hei Lu will walk over to them with grace and bow his head for the children to pet them. When they come close enough he runs them down and impales them with his antlers, killing them, and then devouring their body and soul with a mouth full of sharp teeth."

This pic is awesome, composition design, ect. I was just wondering with the design of the antlers, if they were executed in a way that resembles the antlers of the white tailed deer, it could fill the picture out more however therey may than be issues with fitting them in too, lol ^-^

All I can think of is that deer from Adventure Time and when he stands up on two legs, looks at the viewers, and takes off his hooves and wiggles his fingers.
:'D It scares me.


(But this drawing is very cool. Love the atmosphere)

Wow this is fantastic...the description if awesome, and it really fits the image. I love that you went with gold and green which aren't traditionally "demonic" colors while still making this look creepy and threatening.

OH MY GOSH ;;
this game out so beautiful, I'm absolutely blown away!
the background is absolutely gorgeous! i really love the warmer lighting you went with, and i love the hanging partial skeleton : D it's all very beautiful, very great lighting and shadows, I love how the light placement shadows the character, it's a great impact on him, along with the background colors, which are warm and somewhat deceptive, like the character itself <: i can't get over how lovely this is ;a;
