How to Draw a Deer Head, Buck, Dear Head
Before getting started pick your pencils. I decided to use only 2 pencils for this drawing. I used an H for sketching and light shading/lines and a B for dark shading/lines.
Start out with a basic sketch of the deer's head. Use the guide lines if you are having trouble getting it just right. Keep the antlers simplified for now.
Use a blending stump or cloth to roughly shade in the background. This will make the foreground pop out more.
Start adding detail by working on the dark portions of the head first. The B pencil will come in very handy here.
Shade in the fur. Keep it more rough than smooth. Avoid blending here if you want a more realistic look.
Now, add some rough shading to the antlers. This will guide you as you add detail to them in the upcoming steps.
Shade in your antlers one at a time. You'll mainly use the H pencil here. I used the H to outline and define the antlers.
