Black Stag by hellcorpceo Black Stag by hellcorpceo

The other week, I was listening to Hazy Shade of Winter (I know, I know, I am terminally uncool), and it put me in mind to draw high-contrast stuff in the snow. So here is some high-contrast stuff in the snow!

I have also discovered a strange affinity for painting dead birds. This is yet another hobby that I shouldn’t talk about at parties.

Detail shots on my tumblr!

This image gives a rather obscure feeling. And the stags appearance with the falling birds feels like
foreshadowing an omen, perhaps. Amazing contrast between the snow's pure white and dark greys. I am a dummy!
Really like how you designed the dark tree antlers and the body stance is nicely done.

this is so fucking exciting - the work- the tech. The narrative bums me out. I cannot take sadness to creatures. But I bet you're still fun at parties dead birds or not.

Dead birds are surprisingly a lot of fun to draw. No one ever believes me.

My god, I love that song! I've never met anyone whose heard it before. At any rate, I really like what you've done here. Such a curious thing, after all why should a stag sit and watch the dead birds? And yet I can tell from the antlers that is no ordinary stag. 

Very well done, I can feel the tone of the music in this. 

Ann lies.

How interesting that the black "deer" is the rarest deer, as here I feel it is portrayed as "death". This is a very nice piece indeed. 
Btw I like that song....

I have no clue why,

But i am tottaly in love with this drawing,

It may be the contrast of the black stag in the snow,

and the color that one bird adds,

Ive never actually been so obsessed with a drawing and so in love with it before,

I keep coming back to this one everyday

I even checked to see if it was a print
 (mind you i NEVER get prints or have considered buying one)

sadly it isnt one though

I just wanted to say this is really well done and i have a absolute love for this <3

Thankyou for making it ;u;
