Do NOT copy, download, redraw etc. without my written persmission!So here you can see something I did for school - English Seminar Paper.
My topic was / is "Character design in animated films"
and this is the sketch of a mount used by the northern folks.
They cannot be domesticated in the common way; they choose their rider and they only follow this one and only person.
They are magical creatures and can speak human language. As they live in the cold and snowy north they need a very thik and fluffy coat and they walk on cloven hooves to be able to walk fast through deep snow.
Also they most of the time have extremely tiny pupils, nearly invisible, so they can stand the light that is reflected by the tons of snow in their homecountry.
Male creatures wear horns and with their sensitive ears (inspired by the ones of lynxes) they hear even the most silent noises.
Their design was inspired by deers and horses mostly. ^^
