Bambi eat your heart out! Well I walked a tightrope with this one. I wanted to add a fawn to my collection but wanted to steer clear enough of the Bambi Factor but be able to wiff a bit of the 1926 films charm and cuteness, Reckon I pulled it off? Those eyes are a little larger than they should be! Those ears are cute, but again a little oversized! Big ears! Big eyes!
I also wanted a wiff off the Greek Goddess Diana,the huntress. She has often been dipicted with a deer on roman and greek representations of her. She had the the power to talk to and control animals. In almost all sculpture I have seen of her she looks lean and flighty.
I kept to my art deco-ish design ethos and distilled the shape to a simple one that was dynamic, well I think so! Those ears spoil the streamlining though! don’t you think?
Below is the painting in progress.
