Decorative Pencil Drawings of Deer

Moving along through my travel sketch books, I came across studies of deer. I decided to salvage two of these and discard the rest. One sketch was made from an actual stuffed deer I saw in a natural history museum. The other was a detail from a decorative middle eastern painting, ceramic or fabric design that I obviously did not make a note on. I decided to make both of these studies into detailed decorative works in linear pencil patterning. Getting lost in the details, then making sense of them all made for a creative day.
