DEER TUTORIAL by Christopher-Hart DEER TUTORIAL by Christopher-Hart
The deer has an elegant head and face, but a very solid and exacting structure. when you get the outline correct, the rest will flow naturally. i drew this for my book, "DRAWING ANIMALS MADE AMAZINGLY EASY," published by Watson-Guptill, the art imprint of Random House.

A little bit too wrinkly since a healthy deer would have less wrinkles so it won't look to moose-like , other than that its decent! Althought the antlers are actually mostly made of velvet..

Oh, forgot to mention this as well -- the antlers are not actually bone. Bone would never grow that fast, and bucks lose their antlers in the spring. It's commonly thought of as bone, but it's actually a sort-of calcium deposit, which is covered in velvet when the antler is still growing.
I also kind of want to point out that depending on the deer, the antlers can vary in size and appearance. [link] Here are some different examples of antler types, for example.
Hope that helps clear up some easily-made mistakes!

The terms for the antlers wouldn't be called "main antlers"/"secondary antlers"/etc. They're actually called tines or branches. The antler would be the entire growth as a whole. The main branch would be the first tine, the second ones the secondary tines, the branches coming out of those the tertiary tines, etc.

Thanks a lot for the tutorial. I've been looking around for deer references, and this tops everything I found so far. I'd have to take a look at your book as well :)
