How to Draw a Ceryneian Hind

Artist: Dawn / July 15, 2020

Step 1.

Go ahead and draw the guides and shapes for the first step. This will create the frame work.

Step 2.

Start the drawing process of the face. Begin with the crown of the head and then draw out the shapes of the brows and closed eyes. When that is done you can draw in the nose and mouth.

Step 3.

Add the thick long lashes and make the mark between the eyes on the forehead. Typically this is where the third eye is located. Draw in the antlers of the doe deer and some of the shape for the head.

Step 4.

Draw out the eleven style ears and add the detailing inside and all around.

Step 5.

You can now draw the hands, finders and markings on the hands and then draw the pearl like bracelets too.

Step 6.

Draw the skull formation of the deer and then draw that tongue like slither coming from the nostril holes.

Step 7.

We will now draw out the hair which wraps around the entire image. Add detailing and definition throughout as well.

Step 8.

Once everything is cleaned up your drawing should come out looking like the one you see here. Now just color in the art.

Description: For some of you, or maybe most of you, this creature from Greek myth may not be one that you are familiar with. Today, I will show you how to draw a Ceryneian Hind, step by step. Now the Ceryneian Hind or the Golden Hind was a huge hind or female deer from Keryneia, Greece. Now as you know female deer do not have antlers, but the ceryneian hind did. The legend goes that the hind had brass hooves, antlers made of gold and it could outrun an arrow. This creature was a sacred beast to Artemis, the Goddess of unmarried woman, animals and the hunt. This is my depiction of the Ceryneian Hind. I do hope you enjoy the tutorial, I had a lot of fun creating it.
