Borealis by ancalinar Borealis by ancalinar
I was greatly fascinated by sashamya's Pangea - a delicate fawn(?)taur-lady with "severe antler envy". I drew this just because I wanted to imagine the antler-iest foil to that character. But the more I look at it, the more I'm convinced the antlers could be larger and more glorious - maybe something irish-elk-inspired. Of course, the female of the species were rather bald, so a reindeer base seems more appropriate. And not extinct.

I imagine Borealis (I am not great with names) is not the brightest crayon in the box, but certainly the most motheringly kind.

Also on tumblr.

I like how she looks pretty in a non-typical way (going by human societal standards)

Haha! Agreed. There's hidden beauty in us all, most people just aren't used to looking for it. :]

That, and I think because a lot of people forget to look beyond what's on the outside.

Brush? This is pencil. Aside from minor colouring/textures I threw on hastily.

Maybe I'm not seeing what you mean. XD

Yessss. Pangea would be so mad. So. Mad. Life is so unfair! She's an elk hind...taur gain? So she's convinced her antlers would be GLORIOUS. 

I think Borealis suits her, she does look very gentle and kind and now I'm wondering if she could pull a sleigh, which is weird, I'm sorry. Irish elk are amazing, but she might get drafted to carry around an elf king with antlers like those (not a bad thing?)
