EDIT: Got a pic of the feeding scene/body!
I am uploading these because of referencing. Not because I'm some weirdo freak (although I do love to draw/write macabre things.....and yes no artist is a completely normal person)
People Use anatomy drawings to learn how to draw certain things. It's always good to learn about your subject from the inside out so you may draw it to the best of your ability.
This is not a perfect skull, it's missing the tip of the upper skull ( the muzzle area, where the top front teeth should be)
if you compare it to this image I have found on google you will see what it's missing;[link]
Either the frontal part of the skull is missing more than likely because of a feeding or a serious injury. I have no idea.
I thought this would be a good reference upload for those who draw macabre things, like, If you wanted to draw an undead deer/animal with a skull and partial flesh/fur, now you have a reference as to what that looks like!
Also, any reference is a good reference, for anyone who wants to draw a regular deer, this could still be useful
Oh and guys, I did not kill this animal ( i've never hunted a thing in my life!)
It has died either naturally, or was killed by a predator. I dont think it was hunted. A hunter would have taken a prize back (either the head or the antlers.....which as you can see, we now have both)
And this skull was found with the animal' body, which I do not have pictures of.
Yes this is a pretty gross collection of images for those who are squeamish. But lets be mature about this.
And though it is sad, before you say "OMG Poor deer!!!"
Remember that the death of this deer meant a meal for a predator or scavenger, ensuring their life(s). the death of any animal will benefit the ecosystem it lives in in some way shape or form. Sad as it is, the death of anything, still not every animal just goes to waste.
Anywho I hope these help someone with something.
I may scrap this, It's not really art from me, so yeah, I'll scrap it in a few days.
