Sometimes my drawings get rather out of control and the sketchbooks pile up fast. I have explained to the man I love that it's not some intentional thing I do to drive him crazy. I mean, it's not as though I wake up in the morning going, "It's 4:30 am! I know what will drive Rocko crazy today! More sketches!" It just sort of works out that way.
Rocko: You really need to pick up your stuff. It's like you exploded in the study.
Me: You're exaggerating. I'm pretty sure I'm only occupying about 45.7% of that room.
Rocko: You have 100% of that room inaccessible to any other human in this house.
Me: The staff (Pointing to cats) and I disagree. Besides. You cannot expect me to draw Harry Potter-Beyoncé-Super-Robot-Deer in some restrictive, sterile environment.
Rocko: There are bones in the house and they are not in a body! What was the other thing?
Me: Harry Potter-Beyonce-Super-Robot-Deer.
Rocko: *very puzzled look*
Me: If I said Eucladoceros dicranios, would it have made more sense?
Rocko: Point taken.
Step 1: Shapes
Step 2: Lower Antlers
Step 3: Finish Antlers
Step 4: Details
PS: This tutorial and many others will be in the upcoming How to Draw Ice Age Animals book. So excited! So tired! At the same time!
PPS: Rocko wasn't completely lying about the bones thing... (Heads up. The following photo is of deer vertebrae, but if you don't have a high-yuck-factor for that sort of thing, it'll be safer to scroll back up to the Eucladoceros dicranios images.)
Still here? Outstanding! There's a skull and antlers to match those vertebrae. More to come! Dire wolf skulls are coming too. This is how notes and sketches pile up, Rocko!
