The red-nosed reindeer

This is "The red nosed reindeer", aka "The Real Rudolph", which is not the Disney version. If it looks somewhat disconcerting it's intended. This creature is not supposed to be pleasant looking...
These are "before" images. Often I like to show unfinished work and process images, in stead of showing only a finished result.
Many cultures have deer myths or myths mentioning deer. This page being accessible all over the world, you may find that your own culture has deer myths too. It is not possible for me to even provide a guess as to what culture the Rudolph character may have belonged to originally, if any. He may even be an amalgam (a "mash-up") of one or more of the ancient myths from around the world.
