Musk Deer


pen, inktense pencils, water and oil pastels

Musk Deer are on the endangered list. They are often killed by hunters to obtain the musk which is used in perfumes and medicines. Hunting and habitat destruction endanger the present day survival of all musk deer species. The Siberian musk deer is the most threatened.

I'm joining in with Friday Face Off


  1. You are amazing! I love these. You really captured the faces. Thank you for joining Friday Face Off.

  2. Really lovely art. So sad they are diminishing.

  3. Lovely art Lin. I will avoid musk fragrances from now on.

  4. Your musk deer art is amazing. I especially like the first one. It looks like a page out of a journal, one of my favorite things to make, and also I love seeing other people's too. Have a great weekend.

  5. A beautiful animal-and I learned something new today. So sad so many things are disappearing from earth.

  6. So many bad things happen for the sake of man's egoism.
    Your drawings are always a delight.

  7. That head is very successful indeed!

  8. Lovely art Lin and thank you for sharing details about the deer.

    All the best Jan
