Deer Witch

A while ago a friend of mine told me a legend from his area that was about a deer witch, a woman who transformed into a magical white deer. This is my first in-progress portrait of this interesting character.

Upon some (very minimal) research I think he might have mashed up two separate stories, that of 'The White Lady' an apparition who haunts a certain area of Westchester, NY and also the Great White Deer which if you spotted is a sign of great fortune. Either way I think they idea of deers and ladies are always a good combination.

Dig this one a lot! Love her lack of eyes and the contrast of textures in her hair and her ears.
