My idea was inspired by Indo-European culture and fairy tales in which stags are considered enchanted creatures, solar guardians (represented In my illustration by the moon and sun necklace ) and kings of the forrest, also this idea is illustrated on the second side, where the stag is standing on the top of the mountain.
Your Swiss Army Knife 2017
Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
Stag or Buck, because is a symbol of strength, a protector of nature and an animal so stunning to behold.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
What story does your design tell?
What style did you choose for your design and why?
Simple lines and colours combined with free-hand drawn detail, the colours, mostly purple and blue, give a more otherwordly feel to the design, best suited for my "Enchanted Stag" theme.
