Hart of the Oak by Nambroth Hart of the Oak by Nambroth
I've long wanted to paint some Red Deer, and when I was asked to do the sponsor print for MFF I was excited to do this painting!

A special thanks to Adrian Scottow, as he gave me kind permission to use his photos for inspiration on the setting.

Acrylic brushes in Corel Painter.

The fog makes it look a little spooky. The deer are beautiful!

Wow, this is lovely! I love the contrast between the warm tones of the deer and the cool background. Also the faded effect gives a real sense of distance and peacefulness. :)

Beautiful! I really like the use of so few colors, and still that you manage to capture such richness in those few colors. Lovely atmosphere!

Oh wow! You have no idea how much I love this one! Definitely one of my all time favorite digital paintings from you. The cool, blue mist in the bg and those reddish tints up front really make this a dynamic looking painting.

This is stunning. It reminds me of the Forest of Dean and Cannock Chase, or even Bradgate Park in the UK (all where I have seen Red Deer) A wonderful scene, suitably seasonal!

So wonderful ^^ I love Red deer too, and I love the atmosphere of this piece. The doe seems a bit flat to me?(using a phone, so it could just be my phone)
Is the version of Painter still 10? Or have you upgraded? Also, know where I could buy a product key?
I found it kind of difficult to use the trial version, but I'd like to keep trying because I see you are amazing with it. So I have some learning to do.
