Actual poro by xHideFromTheSunx Actual poro by xHideFromTheSunx
Just wanted to do something winter themed:meow:
A4-ish size, watercolours, coloured pencils and a little white ink. Referenced own photo.

The title is a jab at the fact that none of the manufacturers of christmas decorations in England seem to know what a bloody reindeer actually looks like:iconfacepalmplz:
Of course, poro is Finnish for reindeer. Hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää, Suomi!

Soundtrack - O Holy Night by Apocalyptica:heart:: [link]

I can't stop you from posting this somewhere else, but have some respect - don't alter this in any way or claim that it's yours. Or I will find you. And I will be ANGRY.:dummy:

You are so right about this christmas stuff! I noticed they mostly use red deer or even roe deer- looking decorations around here now. (Doesn't bother me too much though, because I love all of them :XD:) But I think people should know how a reindeer really looks like. I even witnessed some kids at the zoo saying that the reindeer did not look like actual reindeer..*facepalm* I also think it is awful how reindeer are potrayed in children's movies- they mostly look like some oversized roe deer.
Ah, anyway: beautiful piece of art, we definitely need more (realistic) reindeer art here on dA :)

Sorry for my late reply!
I love all of the deer as well of course, but I can't help being pedantic:XD: If people wanna buy deer for christmas, that's cool (there's at least two regular deer on my tree), it's just annoying when they're labelled "reindeer" and they're tall and short furred etc:XD: I can't believe kids at the zoo thought that:iconfacepalmplz: A friend of mine didn't realise reindeer were real until recent years... I'm so glad there are some people like yourself who actually know a reindeer when they see one:XD:
Thank you!:D And thank you for the fav:huggle:

Lovely drawing!
You´re soooooo right about those stupid christmas decorations- people even mix up MOOSE with REINDEER which I find pretty ridiculous!

Me too!:O My mum showed me some "reindeer" stamps today claiming that they actually looked like them and they had bloody moose noses:nuu: Is it really so difficult to google reindeer before drawing?:O
