Deerborn by ErikShoemaker Deerborn by ErikShoemaker
Another animal shaped nebula, this time in a more realistic style though. Now that I've finally overcome the trial-an-error-phase I might create a third version with a more dynamic perspective which enables me to add maximum depth- as for that matter I'm not very satisfied yet.

It's fairly inspired by the nebulae in the skyrim skill screens and I tried to paint it in the style of the eagle nebula, with less success lol.

Thanks for full view!

I saw mewtwo. The back antler looks like his head, the snout of the deer is his elbow pulled back and the other antler is his hand or something. I dunno. I couldn't actually find the deer for a while because of it. xD Gorgeous though.
