Wrapping up the year

Since the year's coming to a close, I decided to post my favorite works from each month, from this year, in this art summary. This year has been a great year for me, in regards to my illustrations. Looking back and seeing myself improve month by month, makes me want to keep improving even more.
The only month I didn't draw anything, or even take pictures, was June. I must have gone off the grid for awhile.
For now I may not post as many personal works, before the year ends, since I'll be working on commissions.

Sacred Hind

In Greek mythology Artemis (goddess of the hunt) had a large sacred deer like creature, that had golden antlers and hooves of bronze, and was said to be faster than an arrow in flight. Capturing this creature was one of the labors of Heracles (Hercules).

I can't avoid drawing animals forever, so I figured this would be a good starting point, not to mention I learned how to make fur look realistic or dreamy. Though I got heavy handed and the fur makes him look like a mule a bit around the face.
