Commission - Reindeer of the Arctic by Valkyrie-Girl Commission - Reindeer of the Arctic by Valkyrie-Girl
Yet another commission done for :iconlionel23:. This time he had be come up with concepts for a race of reindeer for his "expanded" MLP universe. Correction, both my sister and I worked on them. She's the one who suggested reindeer in the first place.

These were really great fun to work on both because reindeer are awesome and traditional Russian clothing is so cool looking. It was a bit of a challenge adapting the style to fit on reindeer (antlers you look so cool but you're always in the way!) but there's pretty much nothing that my sister and I can't handle if we put our heads together.

Fun fact; These guys can fly!!! Is that not the greatest?


As usual, please don't use this without the permission of the commissioner. They paid for it so they get to do as they please with it.

How exactly do they get those hats on when they have those giant antlers?

Not bad. :) I, myself, drew MLP versions of reindeer. Would you like to see them?

Thanks. Though now I'm not sure who's is better. Yours or mine. :( Maybe I just like females having longer muzzles.

Thanks! It was really fun to research and adapt the traditional clothing to work with deer anatomy.

Woo reindeer! Their clothing is awesome.
I love the poofyness of their coat. And the little hat. It amuses me for some reason.

Hats and poofyness are the best.

God I love deer people. Do want.
Also I love the fact that SOMEONE besides me knows that female and male reindeer have antlers. Anyone I tell this is like "durr hurr no only males have antlers for fighting ur dum".

Gets on the nerves after awhile.

One would think that more people would know since it's a really cool deviation from the norm. Ah well.
