Please Don't. by Steph-Laberis Please Don't. by Steph-Laberis
Most of my compositions for the book have been very "BAM! ANIMAL IN YO FACE!" but with the white tailed deer, I decided to push them into the background a bit. They're the quintessential prey animal; something always wants to kill them, whether a predator or a game hunter (hence why the shadows here are blood red), so I depicted them as I remember seeing them as a kid. Wary, pleading, never quite trusting... but always with Dad not too far behind.

It almost looks like they're in a cage made of trees.

When I first saw this it seemed like the yellow b/g was in front of the trees, it was weird. But very nice drawing!

Awesome trees.  And I like how Dad fades into the background a little bit.

These guys were a big part of my childhood, and you've captured them (so to speak) beautifully. Thanks for sharing this piece!

I think this is my favorite from you yet! (Well, since I've been watching you anyway ;) ) I love all the cute/funny pictures, but it's great that this one has more meaning to it. I like how you have the stag kind of transparent, almost like a ghost; sometimes they seem like that with how well they hide. deer for emoticon project

"For you, I wouldn't" (that was at the deer).

Wow, that visual over-layer is strong -- it took my eyes a couple of seconds to resolve the scene. It's beautiful, and striking.

Really beautiful. Before I read the description, the title and the image reminded me of burning forests and how deer suffer from loss of habitat like many other forest animals. I suppose it unwittingly took me back to bambi during the forest fire. I like your description better though.
