Funfact: This is not my first attempt at mixing a deer with a peacock. Check this (crappy) manipulation from 2007 :D

:iconthelegendofluigi:
What I see in this picture is immediatly highlighted by the animal's crown. The lighting on this is stunning, the illuminating backgrownd and the forest feature is anything but drab. The forestry texture and fairies floating in the air gives the artwork more atmosphere, and the creativity is something that will not be ignored.

The symbolic meaning could've been etched out a teensy bit more, but don't let that turn you away from the fact that the artwork is absolubtly stunning in every shape, fashion and form. The meaning behind this picture would have to be of the nature of beauty, as it is shown greatly by this creature's longing for a free will, gone from the hasty eyes of the inturder, and the bullet of the hunter.

To conclude, I would have to say that this is a beautiful capture of what our nature has to offer, that we shouldn't be ignorant to our outside world but we are because we're all caught up in the big 'rush' that pulls us away.

99/100
